    One of our two HR24-500 went on the fritz. Signal strength is good across all transponders and tuners, yet it displays "no satellite signal detected". Have done multiple soft and hard resets. I swapped the two HR24s around and the problem follows the offending unit. I don't understand how the signal strength can be 95-99% yet the same box can't detect a satellite. I have reran sat setup several times. Boot up looks normal, it goes through receiving sat info, then sticks at acquiring guide data. If I bypass that, I get the no satellite signal message. I am stumped. Any ideas? Thanks.

    If you have a SWM system unplug the power inserter to the dish for 30 seconds.

    Thanks Jim. The unit is going to be replaced on Tue. It is toast. Noticed you have been a customer since July 1994. That's my signup date as well.

    If you can get to a Menu, can you try resetting Everything.
    This choice wipes out all settings and deletes all recordings and starts fresh, almost like out of the box.
