That is typical of a bad, corroded connection. I have also seen a bad lnb or receiver that would cause that. But it's genrally connection issue.

Absolutely correct! Mine was a the LNB that needed replacing. Then the other day, the DVR got moved a bit, and the cabling was loose, which we didn't know until the 771 error popped up.
