That would be Nice and I'm sure he would be most Appreicative and you would build Good Karma!!! :)

In my years, I've learned you need to wait for the question to be asked, before you can give the answer, otherwise they don't hear the answer.

Jodean am I to under stand that you are not recieving training from your HSP/employer?
That is not good. I would be changing who I work for. You should be getting on going training from your HSP/employer on the new equipment/systems. There is a training site that you can go to for training at this site, login and stay up to date www.satinstalltraining.com this should help.

Take a look at the setup menu/SAT levels/SWM.
There should be 9 channels displayed.
Each tuner connected can "take" a channel and cause it to show a zero on the setup screen of another receiver.
If you put ALL receivers on this setup screen, you should have no zeros.
What are the numbers you have?
Monitor this receiver's screen and then exit the setup menu on another receiver and recheck "this" receiver's screen. Did one or two zeros appear?
One by one, have each receiver exit the setup menu and monitor the SWM screen.
What did you see?


Before I had a chance to do this another exceptionally cold night occured and 2 of my other 3 HD-DVRs (all three of which are in the living room) crapped out with 771 messages with fluctuating signal strengths and pixelating channels after reset. I've determined this to be the cold weather SWM LNB issue and I've continued my discussion in that thread. I have a service call for Sunday when I'll hopefully get a cold weather tolerant swm LNB or a 5 lnb slimline with a SWM 16.
