    On my HR44/500 receiver on some channels I'll get the 771 signal lost on Sat 1 but the picture is fine. On my HR22/100 receiver on the same channel at the same time I get no 771 error. This doesn't happen all the time and only on certain channels, locals, USA (242) CNN (202) to name a few. Also there are some channels on both receivers that I get no picture and the 771 error on sat 2, channels 274,276,277,283,284,285,286,307 to name the ones I'm aware of. I have a SL5 LNB and SWM system



    Here are my sat signals, I see that some are obviously low but wonder if it's the LNB or dish pointing. Thanks in advance.

    Check Your Outside RG-6 Connectors -for Water damage -- One of them is bad that's why it's on some channels

    Yup. Your aiming is fine. You got water or a bad LnB or multi switch

    read my post. if you have four cables from your dish to an SWM multiswitch, then its 9o% ceertain this is a cable or connector problem. My post even tells you which cable.
    This problem was very common with the four wire SWM8 config but disappears if you have an SWM LNB at thge dish.

    I was having the same problem. I went outside and removed the wires from the lnb, and re-attached the wires. The problem went away. Im thinking there was a little corrosion built up on the cable connectors.

    Any chance this can be sunspots or a tree branch moving with the wind or even a bird landing on the dish? Got the message for the first time yesterday, HR54, 771 signal loss on satellite 1, the channel did not go out.

    For him no. For you it would depend on your signal levels

    do you have a reverse band LNB??? if you do you'll need an external power inserter to power that LNB.
