The Pathway X1 antenna must be used with DISH Solo HD receivers. Examples of DISH Solo HD receivers include DISH Wally, 211z, 211k, 211, and 411 receivers.
The Pathway X1 antenna can receive programming from DISH western arc, which includes satellites 110°, 119°, and 129°. See signal maps* to determine coverage in various areas of the United States. Coverage maps are approximate and do not guarantee coverage.
*Source: www.satbeams.com. Coverage maps are approximate and do not guarantee coverage.
- Do not place the unit in water greater than one inch deep, or water may damage the electronics.
- Do not install or operate the antenna in winds of 35 mph or greater. The antenna will roll in winds ≥35 mph.
- Care should be taken when transporting and setting up the antenna. Do not toss or drop the antenna.
- Do not paint the antenna. Painting the antenna may cause signal degradation and will void your warranty.
- The antenna is not meant for use with the Carryout® ladder mount. Installing the antenna on the Carryout ladder mount may lead to serious injury and/or equipment and property damage.
Installing the Handle
- Locate the two screws for the handle in the base. Remove the screws from the base with a Phillips screwdriver. NOTE
The two holes for the handle are located between the cable connections and the eyelet.
- Locate the handle in the box. With “WINEGARD” on the handle facing upwards, align the two holes in the handle with the two holes in the base.
- Thread two screws through the two aligned holes in the bottom of the handle.
- Tighten the two screws using a Phillips screwdriver. Do not over-tighten.
Selecting a Location for the Pathway® X1 Antenna
- Choose a location with a clear, unobstructed view of the southern sky. Avoid obstructions such as trees, hills, vehicles, or buildings—these can block the signal from the satellite.
Satellite signals will not pass through solid objects. For this reason, it is vital to select a location with a clear, unobstructed view of the southern sky.
- Make sure the antenna is not placed in the path of people or vehicles; otherwise, the antenna may be knocked off of the signal if run into, or cables may be disconnected from the unit.
A 25-foot coaxial cable is included and recommended for use with the antenna. Longer coax runs could potentially cause intermittent problems. The maximum cable length should never exceed 50 feet.
- Select a location that will enable the Pathway X1 antenna to sit within three degrees of level. The antenna may take longer to lock onto the signal if the antenna is not level.
Connecting the Antenna to the Receiver(s)
Run the coaxial cable directly from the satellite receiver to the Pathway X1 antenna when searching for a signal.
- Connect a coax cable from the main port to the “Sat In” port on the back of the receiver that will be used most often. The main port should always be connected to the primary receiver when the antenna is in use, or there will be no power to the electronics.
The receiver provides power to the electronics via the main port. There will be no power to the electronics if a coaxial cable is connected to the secondary port but not the main port.
- If hooking up the Pathway X1 antenna to two receivers, remove the cap from the secondary port, and run a second coaxial cable from the secondary port on the base to the “Sat In” port on the secondary receiver.
- Tighten coax connections until fingertight, and then tighten a quarter turn more with a wrench. Do not over-tighten.
Receiver Setup for a New Wally® Receiver
If using a new Wally receiver with the Pathway® X1 antenna, the receiver will go through an Installation Wizard to help with the setup process. Follow the on-screen instructions to program the remote control. Step 1 of the Installation Wizard will pair the remote to the receiver. During Step 2, the unit will need to acquire satellites and may update the receiver (figures 1-6). This step will require a search initiated by the Mobile Setup screen. Fill in the required information, and then select “Scan” to begin the search routine (figures 1-3).
During the search routine, the antenna will scan for satellites.
The antenna may make a slight grinding sound when searching for satellites; this is normal and does not harm the unit.
Once the search routine is complete, the receiver may update (figure 4).
If not already activated, the receiver will need to be activated (figure 5). To activate the receiver, call Winegard Company at 1-866-593-0348. The receiver may reboot automatically as part of the update process (figure 6). If so, select the state of your current location on the Mobile Antenna Setup screen as in figures 1 and 2. Press “Scan” to begin the search routine. The satellite will search for and acquire satellites.
If the receiver reboots at this time, restart (see figures 1 & 2).
Updating Receiver Software
For optimal performance, update receiver software occasionally. To allow the software to update, leave the satellite on signal, and press the Power button on the remote or front panel of the receiver; this will put the receiver in Standby mode (figure 7). Do not unplug the receiver at this time.
After being in Standby mode for a few minutes, the software will automatically begin to update (figure 8). Upon completion of the update, the receiver will reboot. Return to the beginning of “Receiver Setup for Currently Active or Previously Used Receivers” to re-acquire satellites and complete setup.
If the receiver is in Standby mode for more than five minutes, no software update is necessary. Turn the receiver back on to resume normal operation
Receiver Setup for Currently Active or Previously Used Wally® Receiver
If the receiver you will be using with the Pathway® X1 antenna is an older receiver that has not been used in several years, you may need to connect the receiver to a DISH home satellite to be updated before proceeding with the mobile setup. After the receiver has been powered on, the receiver will enter the Mobile Setup menu.
If the mobile setup menu does not appear, press and hold the power button on the front panel of the receiver for 3 seconds to reset the receiver.
Select the state of your current location, and then select “Scan” to begin the search routine (figure 9).
The satellite will begin searching and will locate the desired satellites (figure 10).
If prompted with a message stating fewer satellites than previously used were found, select SAVE or YES to continue.
After the satellites have been acquired, the Electronic Programming Guide will download (figure 11).
Receiver setup instructions are accurate at the time of printing and may change without notice.
Setup for a Secondary Receiver
After completing the setup on the main receiver, power on the secondary receiver. If using a new receiver, you will be guided through the setup by the Installation Wizard; follow the on-screen steps to complete the setup. If using a receiver that is currently active or has been used previously, you will need to complete the setup by doing a Check Switch test. To access the receiver menu for running a Check Switch test, follow the steps under “Accessing the Receiver Menu.”
Accessing the Receiver Menu
If you need to access the receiver menu after initial setup, follow the steps below to reach the receiver menu.
Press the Home button twice on your remote. On the “Home” tab, select “Settings” (figure 12).
Within the “Settings” menu, select “Diagnostics” (figure 13).
Within the “Diagnostics” menu, select “DISH” on the left side (figure 14).
Press “Test Installation 5” to start the Check Switch test (figure 15).
The “Check Switch Status” screen will show the progress (figure 16). Press the Back button three times once the Check Switch test is complete.
The receiver will acquire the signal (figure 17).
Lastly, the receiver will download the Program Guide (figure 18).
Operation of Secondary Receiver
When using a second receiver with the Pathway® X1 antenna, the secondary receiver does not have the full function of the primary receiver. The primary receiver will determine which satellite is viewed, and the secondary receiver will need to be set up for that satellite. If the primary receiver changes to a channel on a different satellite, the secondary receiver will lose reception and need to complete setup again on the new satellite.
The secondary receiver’s program guide will only download and display available channels from the installed satellite.
Using Outside Receptacle
If your outside TV receptacle is wired for a satellite, you’ll need to locate where that receptacle leads and connect that directly to your satellite receiver. If the outside TV receptacle is wired for cable, the wiring will have to be modified for use with satellite. The coaxial cable cannot run through any other devices or switches before the satellite receiver.
Typically, if wired for cable, the wiring will either run through a Winegard power supply or a video switch. The easiest way to fix this is to disconnect the cable from that device, use a barrel connector, and connect a new cable that runs directly to the receiver, bypassing the power supply or video switch.
Before transporting the antenna, disconnect the coax cable from the main port.
The Pathway X1 antenna is designed to be maintenance-free. However, it is a good idea to periodically clean the dome with a soft cloth, water, and dish soap
This device complies with Part 15 of the FCC Rules. Operation is subject to the following two conditions: (1) this device may not cause harmful interference, and (2) this device must accept any interference received, including interference that may cause undesired operation.
