Accuweather tends to alert for storms nowhere near, but the last one, yesterday evening, was for a thunder storm, with intense rain, that was in our area. While we were watching a program, and recording another on a HR-22, the storm arrived. It had been raining off and on for a while, but now it was intense, and dthe thunder quite loud. Storm center was likely north of us, and as the house is direct-gain passive-solar, it is oriented to the south, we did not see the lighning.
An usuual message appeared, stating that there was a problem with Tuner #2, and giving instructions to check the cables to the receiver and to check the dish; the latter instructions was not one I was going to do under the cirucmstances. The second entry in the message said to press Select; I have no idea what Select is, having no such buttton on my Logitech Harmony One remote, and having never see that word on the TV screen as far as I recollect.
I chnaged channels, which brought up a working progrram, so switiched back to the one we were watching; now, the program seemed to be on the tv screen, but frozen. After a short while, it started working again.
I presumed that the problem was really a "Searching for Signal' one, although that message, which I have seen a few times during severe weather, did not appear, and that the recorded program would have a gap in it. When I went to play the recording, there was a mesage about a gap due to transmission problems. I watched the one-hour-long program, and never saw a gap; it might have been there during a commercial break as I was fast-forwarding, but as I knew about how long before the end of the live program the interruption had occurred, I did watch for a gap in the recorded program around that same time, and did notd see one.
Is what I saw about Tuner2 having a problem something that replaced the former searcing for signal message, or some other mysterious other whatever ?
