3 2 Introduction This module instructs you on the proper DIRECTV ODU mounting procedures

4 3 Objectives Upon completion of this module you should be able to: Select stable mounting surfaces Mount the ODU to: –Wood walls –Brick or masonry walls –Roof with asphalt shingles –Poles –Non-pens Level the mast Upon completion of this module you should be able to: Select stable mounting surfaces Mount the ODU to: –Wood walls –Brick or masonry walls –Roof with asphalt shingles –Poles –Non-pens Level the mast

5 4 Service Calls and Mounting On average, only 64% of the DIRECTV mounting installations are correct There are over $500,000 in customer damage claims each year from improper installations On average, only 64% of the DIRECTV mounting installations are correct There are over $500,000 in customer damage claims each year from improper installations Take a moment and consider… If you were a customer and within days after installation you had problems would you be upset?

6 5 The Mount Think of the mounting of the ODU as the heart beat of the system Lack of signal renders the system useless Think of the mounting of the ODU as the heart beat of the system Lack of signal renders the system useless

15 14 Tools and Accessories Needed for Mounting Silicone sealer Black Jack roof sealant Bishop tape Silicone sealer Black Jack roof sealant Bishop tape How would you feel if you took your vehicle to a mechanic for repairs and he/she did not have tools to do the work - would you trust that person to do a good job?

16 15 Mounting to a Wall Steps required to mount the ODU to a wall: –1 st - Locate the proper location for the ODU –2 nd - Locate the center of the stud –3 rd - Mark the location –4 th - Pre-drill –5 th - Fill with silicone sealer –6 th - Mount foot plate –7 th - Level foot plate –8 th - Install the remaining lag bolts –9 th - Level the mast Steps required to mount the ODU to a wall: –1 st - Locate the proper location for the ODU –2 nd - Locate the center of the stud –3 rd - Mark the location –4 th - Pre-drill –5 th - Fill with silicone sealer –6 th - Mount foot plate –7 th - Level foot plate –8 th - Install the remaining lag bolts –9 th - Level the mast

17 16 Step 1: Proper Mounting Location Find the best mounting location for the ODU that provides no obstructions to a clear line-of-sight

18 17 Step 2: Locate the Center Stud Locate the center of the stud using either of the following methods: Stud-finder Locate nail heads Locate the center of the stud using either of the following methods: Stud-finder Locate nail heads

19 18 Stud-finder Calibrate the stud-finder DO NOT rock or lift the scanner from the scanning surface, or start moving the scanner before it has calibrated Calibrate the stud-finder DO NOT rock or lift the scanner from the scanning surface, or start moving the scanner before it has calibrated

20 19 After the scanner is set securely on the surface and it has been calibrated, slide it horizontally without lifting or rocking it. Stud-finder

21 20 To scan for metal place the scanner against the surface and begin to slide the scanner either horizontally or vertically Stud-finder

22 21 Once youve found an edge, mark the wall with a pencil along the stud edge grooves on the scanner Stud-finder

23 22 Move the stud-finder in the opposite direction to mark the other edge of the stud Between the two lines is the center of the stud Move the stud-finder in the opposite direction to mark the other edge of the stud Between the two lines is the center of the stud Stud-finder

24 23 Now you have located the center of the stud Stud-finder

25 24 While working near electrical wiring, use your personal observations and critical thinking skills! Dont just let the scanner do the work! While working near electrical wiring, use your personal observations and critical thinking skills! Dont just let the scanner do the work! Stud-finder

26 25 Studs are on 16 centers Nail heads can be used to locate the center of the stud Studs are on 16 centers Nail heads can be used to locate the center of the stud Nail Head Location
