    Occasionally, when the select button is pushed to get out of the DISH screen saver, a switch error message screen will come up for about two seconds before the tuned channel is displayed. Is this a problem? It has never failed to proceed to the tuned channel.

    Ehh, I think it's just the receiver having to send the DiSEqC command to the switch a second time before the switch responds. I don't really think it's an issue as long as the switch is indeed responding before the receiver gives up.

    I've seen this problem off and on the last couple of releases myself. Typically when I get this I try and go in an run a check switch just to be safe, but if I'm about to have a recording start or want to watch TV right away I don't bother.

    Thanks. I'll take that as don't worry about it, it is not an issue. And my check switch function shows everything OK.

    The only thing I'd add is it seems that after I get this message I tend to have more delays changing channels where sometimes I will get an 'acquiring signal' popup for a second or 2 on some channel changes. After running a check switch they tend to disappear. I don't know if they are related or not.

    Sounds like a low signal problem.

    Have you peaked your dish to 129?
