    It sounds lie you have only one active tuner.
    Do you have two SAT feeds connected?
    Are both tuners reading signal levels from the setup menu?

    if you have two separate SAT feeds, try going into the setup menu and down to reset. Then reset "recorder" first option and see if that brings the second tuner back on line.

    Yes when the new SAT starts up with Ka-lo band the diplexing won't work as they are both in the same band.

    "they say" you throw out the BBCs since the SWM will not use the OTA band so you can go back to diplexing OTA into the output of the SWM [actually some SWM are said to have an OTA port on them].
