Since the issues are with MRV and you have a SWiM-16, unless you're also having 771 errors and searching for signal, the dish isn't anything involved with your problems.
I just left a message with the original installer making him aware of the problem. Still trying to eliminate everything I can think of. I was surprised when the installer used my existing dish. I was expecting to get a new one. I am not really sure what dish I have. I can say that it is approximately 5 years old, tripple LNB I questioned him about this and he said that since I got the SWIM 16 it would be fine.

Thanks for the help.

Basically everything "from" the SWiM-16 to your receivers is where to look.
No signal problems or error messages. Just trying to rule out everything .
Thanks for the help.
The DECA passes through the SWiM-16, but doesn't have any interaction within it.

I'm probably reaching here but the HR20 that is most prone to come up missing is in a cabinet and even though I have ventilated the back I think it's running pretty hot. I wonder if this could be the problem. If that was the only problem receiver I could understand it but I wonder if that would cause the other receivers to drop off.
I had a HR22-100 in a ventilated cabinet with no issues until the DECA was placed in there with it. Since the exhaust fan was positioned to facilitate removal of heat from left side of the DVR, the DECA module was higher and further away getting hot.
It seems the pig-tail could be made longer to place the DECA module outside of the cabinet rather than in the cabinet.
