Tuner 2 for the 110 has had really weak numbers in the 40 thru 60 range. Tuner 1 is great. Tuner 2 for all other birds shows readings in the 80's and 90's any ideas?
look for an issue with the tuner 2 cable somewhere between the dvr and the multiswitchmillertime said:Tuner 2 for the 110 has had really weak numbers in the 40 thru 60 range. Tuner 1 is great. Tuner 2 for all other birds shows readings in the 80's and 90's any ideas?
When the signals drop try this, remove the tuner 2 cable and put it back in the same place you will get a good signal for a while and eventually will drop again.millertime said:hr-100 and just checked and signals are all good since I switched cables last night. However my fingers are crossed
K4SMX said:This problem has been thoroughly studied. You'll find that rebooting, swapping cables, etc. causes it to appear to be fixed. Yet as soon as you first tune the receiver to a 103(c) channel or bring up the 103(c) signal strength menu page, it re-appears.
I have seen no information that it will be fixed "in a couple of months." What I do know is that it effects the HR20-100's almost exclusively and that it is very often found in HR20-100-R's (refurb's), which is probably a good reason they're in the refurb chain to begin with.
A number of members have been successful in minimizing or completely eliminating the problem by adding a standard 3' RG6 patch cord between the BBC and the SAT IN 2 input on the receiver, which requires a double-female "barrel" adapter on the BBC pigtail. A different length doesn't work.
I won't bore you with the theories we've discussed as to the cause of this problem and why the patch cord usually seems to correct it. Just try it.
Thanks you saved me a couple bucks on the patch cord. The reason i said it will not be a problem because when D11 goes live the channels will be moving to another sat.aldiesel said:Did not work for me. I hope others will post good news.
