I have the H23 in my bedroom, get ESPNU HD fine, the 103 sat is in the 30's and 40's. But in the living room the HR21 shows the 103 sat in the 20's and 30's. ESPNU HD is great in the br but I get the 771 error "searching for signal on Sat In 2" in the LR. I'm borderline getting HD at all bc of a large hill behind my house but why would one get a signal and the other not?
HELP!!!! Football season's coming!

You need a dish alignment...BAD!
If you stop responding to them or put them on ignore, then eventually they'll go away.

Sat signal strengths (99/103) need to be in the 80's, at least, I'm surprised you receive anything at all.

The OP mentioned a hill outside his house so that's why he barely gets any HD. Not sure a dish alignment will fix that. Dish movement elsewhere on the property might find a way to get better signal.

To your question about why one gets some programming and not the other is really a function of being on the borderline of a marginal signal. Some would say "its right on the hairy edge" so its just that one receiver has enough (barely) and the other doesn't. A few raindrops and all will be lost without more signal.

Yeah I know I'm kinda borderline for some channels, they already did a realign but is it normal for strength to be different on different receivers?
