Sometimes 3 birds sometimes just one.
I set a timer to record Vegas on statelite last night (I was recording something else on OTA tuner) and had no sound.
Changed channels and nothing on any channel except for OTA.
I ordered a vip 622 on 2/1 install scheduled for 3/7. Hopefully the 622 will show up before long before my 921 goes belly up.

Sometimes I get only one out of the two satellite tuners working. I have a DishPro system so it may have something to do with getting the correct signal over the cable. Again the OTA tuner SS meter does wonders! You can also try a "check switch", however be csure you actually have signal (i.e. no "snow fade"). Inerrupted signals cause probelms. When I moved I mounted my dishes on 8' poles so I could have access to them should wet snow cover them. I also put them under the eaves which has protected them. Now if only I can find the right cement to make the poles stay put in windy weather.

Will it ever be fixed?

Does anyone know what causes this problem. It comes and goes on my 921 all the time. I thought it might be a bad cable - had them replaced. Then I thought it was a bad DishPro switch and had it replaced. Now it sounds like it is has been a faulty 921 design all the time...

Probably just another 921 problem.
I saw this on one of my 921's over the weekend. Power-Button and Power cord reboots did not get it back (though I didn't try a power cycle right after the reboot).
Eventually had to boot it up with the sat disconnected and then do a switch check (I've needed to do this before).
May never get fixed. I doubt the 921 is very high on Dish's list. I have a feeling E* will eventually give us a VERY strong motivation to upgrade these. Sooner they get them all in the trash, sooner they can cap-off the money pit.
Now playing with 2x 622s.
