D10 Transponder 6 losing signal after 10 seconds or so
Posted 08 May 2010 - 10:50 PM
Satellite signal strength during these periods is typically good with 103 (cb) signals in the 90+ range. Transponder 6 was reporting 95% on both lines.
I have an HR21-200 and a Slimline-5. No additional hardware (the cable runs directly from the outs on the dish to the receiver).
I perused the forums and google to no avail. Any ideas?

The glitch also doesn't seem correlated to weather.

MFH-2 System : 2 Major Viewing Areas. 2 x HR20-700's & H21 in each area via E2/SWM-8. Hardwire gigabit switch to 30 mb/sec internet.

I checked the satellite signal and was getting 89-94 on all transponders on that satellite. But here's the odd thing: while flipping back and forth between the tuners, during one test, Transponder 2 and 4 came back as zeroes. When I flipped back to the other tuner it again got 89-94 on all transponders and then back to the tuner that had gotten the zeroes, it was back to all 89-94s. I flipped through the satellites and tuners and kept going back to both tuners on 103(cb), but I did not see the anomaly again.
