    I recently upgraded my AV receiver and moved the 605 downstairs. When setting it up i get the message "searching for satellite signal 771" only on the HD channels. If i go straight to the TV everything works fine. Not sure what the problem could be.

    It can't be anything to do with the 605. The 771 message says the DirecTV receiver is not seeing the signal from the dish. What are your signal strengths on the 103(b) or 103(c) signal strength screen, all transponders and both tuners if you have a DVR?

    Definitely not the 605. I have one and no issues here. WHen I have the 771 message it requires a reboot of the HR21. Happens infrequently but I know it needs a reset when it happens. After the reset all is well.
