R16 will only record one channel
Posted 23 October 2012 - 04:34 PM
It works fine but will only record on one channel and will not allow you to watch on another channel while recording.
Signal meters show 90+ percent on each tuner. System setup is for dual tuners.
Any thoughts would be appreciated.

When you are not using the SWM system it requires a coax from the dish LNB to each Input / Tuner.
Did that and it showed 90+ percent signal on each tuner.

If that doesn't do the trick, you might go back through sat setup and return it to one tuner, then do it again and set it back to two tuners.
Beyond that, I'm not sure what else to suggest.

To reinforce what Carl said: two separate cables run directly from the dish to the receiver with no stops in between are required. No splitters, switches, or anything else involved.
Actually, there should be a ground block just outside of where the coax enters your structure - but that is a straight through connection, not a splitter or switch, etc. Electrically, it is a straight run from dish to receiver.
