I have two 622s. Right now we are having a nice thundershower. How can I have a signal loss on one receiver and not the other? It's not intermittant, but has been so for the duration.
What gives?

I have one 622 and one 722. During bad T-storms the 722 tends to blank out first and for longer periods. It's also 75 cable-feet further away from the dish. I assume that less signal is getting to the 722 due to the longer cable run and this results in a smaller tolerance for signal degradation.
All I want is a Perfect DVR!

Might make sense in your case with the longer cable runs. However, the one cable run to the receiver losing signal is a lot shorter than the other one.
