Empty recording--searching for satellite signal
Posted 23 June 2013 - 08:05 PM
I went into the Menu and checked the signal strength for that satellite, and it was 95%. I flipped over to the other HR24-500, tuned to Ch254, and was able to view the signal just fine--no noise, interference, just a nice, pure signal. I went back to the first HR24-500, and was still getting the "Searching for satellite..." message. Finally, I ran a System Test, which finished with an "Everything OK" result. However, after running the system test, Ch254 was now appearing just fine!
Is there a cause for this type of behavior? I ask, because if I am not vigilant, this issue can result in a missed episode. Thank goodness for cable TV--every episode is usually repeated at least 10 times!

I have seen this type of behavior when an LNB was going bad.
