The "usual" C31 problems were increasingly plaguing my C31's connection to my HR34, grey screens, very slow remote response, etc. and I finally called D* on Tuesday and scheduled a tech visit for today. He rooted around for awhile and then replaced the LMB on the dish, both multiswitches, fine tuned the dish orientation, then he whipped out a HR44 to replace my HR34! Oddly he left the original C31 and I didn't think to ask for a C41 to replace it until after he left. All the coax is new from last October's D* install. Everything is working well now and even though I lost all my recordings I'm still pretty pleased with his "scorched earth" approach to tech support. The HR44 is FAST!
