long story short. I am moving my antenna (slimline) to a bigger and more stable pole. I keep loosing my signals in the freeze thaw and in big wind storms. over time I keep dropping out certain satellites to. So besides SWM/119/110 what are the other ones I need and how strong a signal should I expect from them? I live in the northeast outside of Buffalo. Also has any one ever seen a software patch for the hr24/700 or hr24/500 that fixes the caller ID? I can go for maybe 5 or 6 days and then the ID quits working and need to do a restart or reboot to fix the ID. It is kind of a drag to have this happen. I have had the units for a year and a half and they have been doing it since almost the very beginning. The phone line works fine I have a phone on that same line that has caller Id in the head set and that never quits. I do have DSL and to have a filter installed I even tired 2 filter in series same thing. I think the software is just unstable on these things? :(
As always thanks in advance!

I have had many receivers over the years including HR20's and currently HR24's and HR34's caller ID has worked flawlessly. Sometimes problems can be caused by the other (or too many) devices on your lines. I'm using a VOIP service not a regular wireline telco. DSL could be the problem despite the filters.

When I had DSL years ago I used a breakout box which isolated the DSL from the regular lines and I never needed filters. It was something like this: http://www.ebay.com/...=item2a1c905903. It saved a lot of problems.
