aghhh, I just got off a terrible 90 minute call with DirecTV. Too many details but examples would be them telling me I have a SWM system when I don't and making me go through numerous guided setups.
Here's my problem.
I have an HR22 and an older HD Receiver. I just got two new HR24's.
I have a Slimline 3 dish (despite DTV telling me I don't)
All receivers are in the same room running of the the same incoming two wires and chained switches (I used to have more receivers)
The first HR24 setup on Sunday with no issue
The second one setup but HD locals did not work as they did not provide B-Bands
Today I receive the b-bands. Once they are installed I still cannot get HD locals. I am getting "Searching for Satellite.....(771)"
I have good strength on both meters but 103 shows up as failing during the test (103 is fine on all my other receivers)
I've restarted, switched cables, switched BBands (see below for an issue on that). Everything points to something about that receiver or the setup. Do you have any suggestions
The other issue was this. When I switched cables including bbands from a working receiver the new receiver still did not work. When I switched the cables back I was now getting no signal at all trough one tuner/ I switched them around and the problem followed the bband. Must be a bad bband I thought, switched in a different one and yes the old receiver works. So now I have the "broken" b-band on the new HR24 and I am getting full strength on both meters (but still have the problem above).
I realize this is very confusing but if anyone has any idea about things to try it would be great. Thansks.
