    The picture was from the Genie box
    I have no Clients (mini boxes). I only have 7 HR24’s and 1 Genie (HR54)

    good sign of unreliable network - it's pass short cmd/responses but not huge video stream while it should

    if you could disable WiFi on the HR54 … I recall [perhaps not true] the HR54 have such parameter ...perhaps it's true for HS17 … try to find anyway
    the WiFi connection instead of using existing coax cables would be the culprit most likely

    Personally, I'd like the approach of troubleshooting:
    when you have max access to whole system by a PC using broadband DeCA converter with USB port and connect it to a free port of a splitter:

    I'm DO you have any Sw16's in your setup? By my Count you have 7-HR24's = 14 tuners 1-HR54 = 7 tuners --for a total of 21

    One way to know -Does you Dish have 4 down leads or Just One?

    The hr54 will pull 7 tuners even if NOT using 4K --unlike a Hr44 that has only 5 -- Since you said problem since day one --(THAT') points to the 54 being added.

    I replace the LNB with a NEW single wire and get rid of the swm-16

    Rich: Thanks. Rebooting in the order you mentioned worked. What a stupid fix. Oh well , guess I now will do that from now on.

    Not sure if there is a way to Mark this as solved but this seems to have solved it. Thanks Rich

    Looks like you have two 29 volt power inserters. If so, you have two swm switches and likely your problem lies within that setup.

    A moderator will do that if it's necessary. Glad it worked for you. Yes, you have to keep doing it, I do it quite frequently. Have no idea why this happens. Been happening to me since I installed the MRV system.

    Makes me wonder if you have ever used the MRV system.

    Also using the IRD of each PI -is another possible cause - I'd go with a single LNB -with a 2way swm + 2 8ways and one PI to run every thing getting rid of all swm 16's and then no more re-booting

    why he need additional SWiM switch ? creating another point of failure ?
    why not use just simple cascading splitters

    That's what I ment --2way from the down lead +one 8way on each leg or a 2way one with one capped-- 7 + PI = 8 ports -the op has 8 receivers

    I didn’t see anyone ask if his system was connected to the internet and which boxes have an Ethernet cable plugged into them or if he has a deca? There is likely a setup issue and I’m guessing they set it up to bridge two swim via his home network...

    His screenshot showed connected to internet, but using wireless on the 54. I’m guessing it’s bridged.

    I tried the bridge once with my 54 and 8-24’s, and kept on having the issues he was experiencing. I then got rid of wireless, went to coax connected MoCA, and eliminated that issue 95% of the time. I believe wired is always better than wireless.

    I still have to reboot some receivers every 3-4 weeks or so, but’s it’s way better than when the Tech came and configured everything.

    Yes the wireless seems to be an issue (only with this Genie) every other device (25+) have zero problems.
    The 7 HRs are connected via Coax and I never have a problem.
    The “directv guy” set the Genie up and went with wireless because I imagine it was quicker.

    What do I need to setup the one and only non coax connected device (Genie HR54) via Coax? That seems to be the best option.

    Obviously a coax run to where you have the wireless client now, as well as replacing the wireless client with a wired version.

    I don’t have any Clients. I have 7 HR24’s all connected via Coax and
    1 Genie (HR54). Is there any way to connect Genie via Coax (internet)?
    I cannot remember what hardware I need to make that happen.
