Look at your display on the TS2000.
Above the first digit on the freq display you should see “PRE” meaning the preamp is on.
On my TS2000 setup with the preamp on I hear all sats just fine.
But every now and then I notice that the “PRE” is not on and as a result I don’t hear the sats or they are very weak.
I have now got into the habit of looking for the “PRE” every time I turn on the sat tracking program (MacDoppler on my Apple computer).
This may be the only problem you are having and is easily fixed.
