The "usual" C31 problems were increasingly plaguing my C31's connection to my HR34, grey screens, very slow remote response, etc. and I finally called D* on Tuesday and scheduled a tech visit for today.  He rooted around for awhile and then replaced the LMB on the dish, both multiswitches, fine tuned the dish orientation, then he whipped out a HR44 to replace my HR34! Oddly he left the original C31 and I didn't think to ask for a C41 to replace it until after he left.  All the coax is new from last October's D* install.  Everything is working well now and even though I lost all my recordings I'm still pretty pleased with his "scorched earth" approach to tech support. The HR44 is FAST!


The thread starter.

It always does when certain members show up.
