    -100 is acting up again. Fine all through last night, and this morning, but went away, and when we came back, no signal. Any ideas?

    Cabling?
    Can you try it at another location?

    I've used 4 or 5 different cables, and they're all labeled for up to 3 Ghz.
    I might be able to try it at another location.
    If I do have to call Directv because the SWM tuner is bad, what do I tell them (Since I shouldn't even have SWM)?

    Disconnected the -100, and brought the D12 upstairs temporarily. The D12 isn't getting a signal now either. I've swapped cables, I've swapped outputs on the splitter. Could it be the splitter?
    Though, when I connect the SWM leter directly to all of the outputs, all of the lights light up (LF, 5 ch, and 8 ch). So the splitter itself is passing the signal, right?

    Do you have the SWM Meter? If so, you can check each output before and after the splitter to see what's up.

    Everything's fine coming out of all connections on the splitters. Now that I'm playing with these, the other 2, which have been fine, are acting up. Neither are getting a signal. Possible the LNB is flaky?

    Maybe try powering down the receivers, powering down the PI, wait 30, bring the PI back up, bring the receivers back up one at a time, checking the status of each before moving to the next?

    I said the heck with it, put everything back the way it was (Regular LNB, switches). ALL tuners are working fine now. Any ideas as to what's happening when I have the SWM going?

    Inside your HR20-100, it doesn't seem to like "staying" on the SWM function.
    Back when the SWM software came out for the H20, I had one that was really "tough" to get it to change from SWM mode to non SWM mode. Earl and I went through the whole drill for a day or two. I finally pulled to power over night and "Bingo" it would boot up on what ever mode I had it connected [my problem was getting it back to non SWM].
