What sort of dual view did he have? Ordinary or was it a HD + 1110 combination?
If ordinary then it is a simple Twin LNB, if not then it is a SATCR LNB. Then the signle view decoder must be connected to the cable connected to the "legacy" port. Unfortunately there is no simple way of telling the difference if the cables have not been marked.
(1) Confirm that there are two cables connected to the LNB on the antenna outside and if possible what sort of LNB it is.
(2) Try the one cable - connect to the LNB IN port on the decoder.
(3) If it does not work, try the second cable
(4) If both are giving you the same problem, then either the cable connections on the LNB are
loose and water has got into the connections, or the LNB is faulty and needs to be replaced.
Do not connect them together with a Tpiece or any other splitter/combiner
You may have to resort to calling in an installer
