Hi
I have an HR44. In the past I have always averaged 92-100 on sat 101 and 88-95 on sat 103cb for all 5 tuners. I noticed just recently that I'm now averaging about 5-20 points lower on both satellites, but oddly enough only for tuners 1 and 5. Tuners 2,3 & 4 are still at there previous mid to upper 90's. Could my LNB be going bad? If it matters in in the NYC DMA

The dish might have been moved a fraction, would be one guess. 


"Laxguy" means a guy who loves lacrosse.

you can also have an "unapproved" component inline that is "affecting" some of the SWM frequencies

Since you're not experiencing any reception issues, I wouldn't worry too much about it.  It might be a slight issue with your dish's single wire multiswitch, or perhaps the Genie itself.  All five Genie tuners are fed from the same satellite signal, just on different SWM channels.
