Bad SWiM LNBs
Posted 07 January 2013 - 06:34 PM
After swapping out the LNB, everything is back up and running.
The tech told me about 4 months ago (coincidentally with my HR24 install), they received a batch of faulty SWiM LNBs which have been failing, and I was the 5th straight LNB swap of the day he had.
Was curious if other HSAs had the same problem in their areas like this. I still have the old unit if lot numbers or serials are needed.
1 x HR24-500 DVR

HotDish 90cm dish
Invacom Linear/Circular LNBF
Openbox S16 HD receiver
Another circumstance, too, worried me in those days: that there was no on like me and I was unlike anyone else. - Dostoyevsky

Like any consumer electronics QC problems happen.
