Whooaa! What Just Happened????
Posted 10 August 2004 - 07:17 PM
Was watching the HD Tivo tonight. All of a sudden, a message came up saying "searching for satellite signal on both tuners." I went to another box and the signal was fine. Checked another...signal fine. Went and tunned to signal strength on the HD Tivo. The signal strength was varying wildly between 30 and 60 percent...then it went completly dead. 10 seconds later, the signal came up to 94 percent and stayed there. No issues since.
Anyone have any Ideal what happended?
And, BTW, no significant clouds at the time.

DirecTV, please don't make me have to go back to watching March Madness in standard Def! Oh, and the usual begging for AMC and BBC America. You are so close to actually being the HD Leader.

I occaisionally had some issues with this as well but they went away once I installed my 5x8 switch. I think the HR10-250 is a little bit more sensitive to issues with the cable that other receivers don't seem bothered by.
These happended with a 5x16 switch installed...which makes it sound like an issue with the HR10-250 since it didn't affect the other recievers. Also all the lines are quad sheild RG6.
Anyhow, I haven't seen it happen again.
