    My HR24 arrived today. I can't get it installed, each time I'm getting a 771 Satellite Signal "2" (I presume line 2) error during setup. Now I did take the BBCs off an HR21 in another room and I put them on the HR24. I also tried switching SAT 1 with SAT 2 and did a RBR, and I get the same 771 error during setup.

    The HR21 is replacing a legacy unit that was working before I tried to install the HR24. Also, my HR21-700 is in the same rack and it is getting signals just fine. So that seems to rule out a signal problem from the switch outside to the satellite dish.

    Can anyone help me as to what to try next?

    Go into the Settings menu and see what's listed for Satellite. It may think you have an SWiM setup.

    You were correct. IIRC, I changed from swm to multichannel. It seems to see a sat signal now.
