Re: HD H20/HR20 Satellite Dish & Antenna Setup, View Signal Strength, Test Signal Strength, "Signal Meters" testing

During "Signal Meters" tests, the strength bar graph should be accompanied by a "beeping" sound. I hear no such beeping.

Do you hear the beeping?

I am concernced that this lack of beeping is tied to another audio problem that I'm currently experiencing.

All comments and qustions will be greatly appreciated.

They never fixed that? It has been 9 months since I used it and before I joined here. I can remember how frustrating that was aligning it myself. I did end up getting it to work accidentally. But so many cocktails and brain cells ago. I think I just kept going in and out of that menu and turning the sound on and off.

That really needs to be on the wish list. I just assumed after all this time and never reading about it, that it was fixed before I joined.
