    Hey Everyone,

    I'm new to the forum. I'm technically savvy, just not with satellite tv :D

    I'm hoping someone can help steer me in the right direction for my problem,
    and I haven't actually tried anything yet (except removing and inserting the
    card several times).

    I have a dish 500 system, with two 3900 receivers. The receiver in the living
    room works fine. The receiver in my office is constantly acquiring satellite
    signal. If I go to setup, to point dish/signal I get a "not locked" for both
    the 110 and 119 satellites.

    Any ideas would be appreciated.

    Have you tried physically swapping the receivers? That will help to isolate the problem to either a bad receiver or bad cable to the one room.

    I haven't done that yet... It is the easiest thing to try (except for the cord fishing, lol).

    I'll report back after I try. Thanks.
