    Hopper appears to be working fine, all channels come in fine. But on my lone Joey, channels either switch to SD or tosses up a search for satellite screen, some channels do seem ok, though I have not checked in detail. Any ideas on the problem causing this?

    Thanks for any feedback

    Have you tried resetting the Hopper?

    I power cycled the Joey, but not the Hopper as it seems to be working ok...

    It's odd, because it seems to be intermittent. I'll have to check the Joey now and see if it's working now

    It's been very cold here, and now that its warmed up a little, the Joey seems to be working ok, which makes little sense, since the Hopper never seemed to have an issue, and I cannot figure out why the Joey would go looking for Satellites if it gets all its information from the Hopper???

    When were you installeD? There was an issue with a batch of older nodes but I haven't heard anyone complaining about that in quite some time.

    Yep and it was a cold weather issue with some nodes and LNB combinations.

    Interesting... its been at least 6 months, perhaps more, I'd have to look when my install was. Definitely intermittent..
