I installed a new surge protector yesterday and now both of my AM21 do not work. The guide is populated with the local stations and gives a error code of 792 searching for signal on the off-air anrenna. Any ideas?

I'm not familiar with a 792. Maybe redo the satellite and antenna setup?

Your antenna amp wasn't going thru the surge protector before right? I accidentally unplugged my small antenna amp and got 792 as well. Just a thought.

792 is to OTA what 771 is to the D* Dish. It's a signal loss on the OTA.

I suspect a bad surge protector. You get your guide info off of the satellite. You receive your locals off of your OTA antenna, which now appears to be open or shorted.

Problem is corrected,when I took down my C-BAND there was a cable in the attic that I accidently took out the same time that I installed the surge protector. It has so many years that this was connected and now fixed. Thanks for all your inputs.
