In the past I have noticed with all older (non-HD) receivers, if you lost signal for a brief time due to bad weather, it would just report "Searching for satellite signal..." or you would get pixelation - You could leave it at the channel where signal was lost, and eventually it returns to normal once the weather clears after a few minutes or so. With the HR24 (using a slimline sl-3 SWiM) I noticed if you lose the signal, it doesn't return after the weather clears. The screen remains black / or pixelated (stuck) UNLESS you change the channel. Is this normal? It has happened twice so far during some heavy rains . I was going to test this theory by blocking the signal on the dish to see if I can reproduce it again.
