I have a Slimline 5 dish with 2 HR-24 DVR's. I have had this setup installed for about 1.5 years now with no issues. I started getting the 920 error message about 2 weeks ago out of the blue. I have not changed anything with my setup and by all accounts the dish looks to be in the same shape that it always does. I have reset both HR-24's and the SWM power box and I am still getting the same error. I actually still get most of my channels but almost all of my info guide doesn't work. The local channels receive guide info and all work but most of the other channels don't get guide info. Here is my sat info. If anyone has any ideas where I should start looking feel free to let me know. Thanks

Assuming this is a conventional four output LNB feeding an external SWiM multiswitch, and the problem is on both receivers, it appears from those readings that one of the two cables (the "even" one) from the 99/101 outputs of the LNB might be bad. If you can, try switching positions of those two cables to the SWiM switch. If the 0s on 101 and 99© change positions its a cable. If they remain the same its a bad LNB.

Addendum;

The reason for the 920 guide data error messages is because a SWiM switch gets its guide data (and other system info.) exclusively from transponders at 101 where you are getting the zero readings due to the problem.

Thanks guys. It was a bad cable end. Works great after I replaced it.

Same issue here recently but on all my non DVR HD receivers.

This is my 101° do I have any issues?

They are fine, please post all your other signals.
Also what type of dish do you have, and do you have a multiswitch of any sort?
