    I have a SWM setup, that uses an HR44 and HR24 dvr. We had an ice storm and I had limbs down on some of my various lines outside. The power did not go out, but I'm only getting the SD channels and (HD channels). Satellite Strength tests confirm low signal strength in 103ca and 103cb and 0 strength in 99s , 103s. What are some things that I'd be able to diagnose on my own towards a fix?

    If you have SWM you should only have one cable to the DVR, not two. Sat In 2 is unused.

    Thanks, I think I took the "No signal in Satellite In 2" error message the wrong way. I edited the original post.

    HD channels always go out before SD channels. It's the nature of the signals.
