    771- Problem Communicating w/ Dish
    * SWiM power inserter may need to be plugged

    in.
    * The network can't detect the SWiM due to
    power
    loss to the SWiM.

    Is a RG6 Disconnected? Maybe start at the rear of the receiver to see if it's lose

    Or perhaps the current error codes are actually catagorized by the following. ...

    771 - "Searching for Satellite"

    Main Check: 1) Peaking 2) Line of sight 3) Connections 4) Distribution system 5) Hardware

    771A and 775 - "Problem comunicating w/Dish"

    SWiM power inserter may need to be plugged in. The network can’t detect the SWiM due to power loss to the SWiM. No SWiM installation is present Superseded by 775.

    771B and 776 - "Problem Communicating w/Dish"

    Too many receivers or tuners are connected to the SWiM. Test with SWiM meter and upgrade to SWiM 16 if necessary. Superseded by 776.

    What dish do you have?
    How are the two receivers connected to the dish?
    Has this ever worked or are you trying somethin new?

    Does your RV have separate "TV/Cable" and "SAT" coax inputs?
