One of my directv boxes is not gettinjg all of the xponders it should be. I have gone so far as to setup a complete system (extra dish,switch, and freshly terminated rg6 coax).

The xponders output is:

sat # 101 signal strength
1 - 8: 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 539 - 16: 0 34 0 0 0 0 0 017 -24: 0 0 0 0 0 89 0 7925 -32: 83 77 89 78 0 85 100 94
sat # 119
1 - 8: all NA9 - 16: all NA17 -24: NA NA NA NA NA 89 0 7925 -32: 83 74 87 78 0 85 100 94

sat # 110
1 - 8: NA 0 NA NA NA NA NA 509 - 16: NA 0 NA NA NA NA NA NA17 -24: all NA25 -32: all NA
any thoughts other than a dead receiver?

Did you verify that the receiver has the right programming on channels, if not then you may be looking at somthing other then the 101 Sat.

If a different receiver is connected in place of the problem unit, that new receiver is able to get all the "zero" xponders and none of them are less than about 75 and most are in the high 80's to the high 90's

BTW, the values for 119 look okay. That sat only uses TPs 22-32 and TPs 23 & 29 are spot beams, so they can be zero.
DirecTV since '96, Waivers for ABC, CBS, NBC, & Fox, HR23-700 & HR24-500/AM21, using ethernet based MRV.
