    I have 2 DP 44 Switches chained together to support 6 receivers. Today I went to add a new receiver for a guest bedroom and it seems than one of the receiver outputs on the second switch is bad. Is it possible for just one output to go bad or does the entire switch go bad?

    Cheers

    Yes it is very possible for just 1 port to be bad.

    If you have 2 DPP44's and 6 receivers that leaves 2 ports open.

    Try taking a lead to a working rcvr and place it on the suspected bad port and run a check switch. If you have the same errors in the summary then it definitely is the port. Use your other unused port the run your new rcvr. If there are no errors in the summary, then look at the new rcvr. There is a term called DOA given to rcvrs that are defective fresh out of the box. :icon_cool
