    I have a HR20-700 connected to a Pioneer Elite and a HR10-250 connected to a SD Pioneer.

    No problems with the HR20 that i know if, BUT......

    After the upgrade last night now the HR10-250 no longer works. Signal Strength is good above 90% on all three sats. It just will not acquire any info from the sats. Says searching for signal on Sat1 and Sat2? I have restarted the unit twice and have cold started it once, same thing. It says there is a problem with the setup and will not play live TV.....

    Any body else with this problem?

    Thanks,

    Bo

    The two receivers are independent of one another....
    The 0x145 update should have no affect on your HR10-250.

    Try unplugging your HR20 to see if your HR10 will start to function or not.

    Thanks for the info Earl. I have tried everything, restarted recorder, powered down, went through entire set up process and it hangs at the same point as stated below.

    I have also tried to power the HR20 down and rerun the setup. Same results as posted below.

    It gets to the step of aquiring satellite info and it hangs at 10%. Comes back that there is a 4 port switch. But on both SAT in 1 and 2 it says for sat 101 that :Right side not detected" Both 110 and 119 say "Not Detected"

    It then hangs at that point and will not go any further.

    According to the signal meters i have 93% on 101, 97% on 119, and 83% on 110.

    HR10 was working at 4:15 when i got up to make my bladder gladder and at 6:00 when i got up it said "Searching for signal on Sat 1 and Sat2". Been dead ever since.

    My HR20 got an update to 145 at 4:46am. Might be a coincidence, but it is pretty weird........

    Tech is suppose to be here by 1:00pm. We will see........

    Thanks for the help.

    Did you try unplugging your HR20 (At least from the SAT feed), and seeing what the HR10-250 is doing?

    It shouldn't matter, but at least it is a test.

    I powered the HR20 down and rerun the test. Same results.

    Local company just called and they will be here by 12:30. Impressed with the response from this company, Digital Satellite, Mastec 2. Service call was placed by D* at 10:00 this morning and have all ready had two calls from them. Last was a follow up saying they are running behind and will be here by 12:30.

    Will post findings.

    Thanks again for all your help!!

    Let us know if they wind up replacing your HR10 with an HR20 and wind up letting you keep the HR10 [Since rumor has it they don't want them back].

    If this is the case my last HR10 might develop a problem. ;-)

    I think Earl meant for you to disconnect the HR20 from the satellite feed, just for the record.

    Anyway, maybe by now all your problems are solved, I hope!

    It ended up being a couple of bad connectors on the satellite cables to the Multiswitch. Had no effect on signal quality to the HR10, just would not let the unti acquire the satellite info.

    Replaced connectors and it seems to be working fine now. It did stall again on acquiring satellite info and had to be rebooted twice before it began working and acquired all the satellite info.

    They told me to keep an eye on it and if it happened again they would send me a new receiver.

    Kudos to the service guy, I think the name of the company is Mastec 2. Guy was great, i would highly reccommend them.

    Thanks for all your input,

    Bo
