H21 from Swm to 18" round dish
Posted 30 July 2011 - 11:57 AM
I've also tried a reset everything, but it still starts with the original dish settings. Does anyone have a way to get it out of Swm mode?
I also read about a super secret reset involving down arrow/record for hr receivers during the boot, but obviously no record button on a non hr receiver, is there a super reset sequence for the h21?

After it starts up press the ACTIVE and UP keys on the front panel simultaneously and hold them in until the TV picture changes.
This used to get you right to the SETUP and INFO/TEST screens-maybe it still does.
Then, go through the satellite setup (specifying 18" dish) and restart the receiver. When it restarts and finishes all it's tests, remove power.
Now, hook up the 18" dish and power it back up.
Let us know if it works. If it doesn't, I have a few more ideas...
