Could this be a software version issue?

I had a Directv receiver die and decided to try and hook up my old DSR6000 in the meantime to replace it. I have an HR22 also setup. I am using an SL3 as the lnb/switch. The software on the DSR6000 is 3.1. I am not able to detect any signal on any line, even though my HR22 has no signal issues at all. Was there a software update that was required to use the newer LNB? Thank you very much.

:welcome_s to DBSTalk!

Is this a regular Slimline 3 or a Slimline 3 with SWM? If it has a SWM, I don't think that DSR6000 is going to work for you.

Don't feel bad. Seriously.
You really wouldn't believe the number of service calls I've been to where all I did was move the Satellite cable from "out to TV" or "Antenna In" to "Satellite in".
