I have been getting the 771 error off and on. It usually goes away in a short time or I reset the receiver. I know the dish is not out of line because we have had 45 mph wind lately and it is ok. I have checked all the connections. The Direct rep had me do the system check. It showed no problem. She told me to call when the problem occurred again. I told her the problem would probably go away before I could call in and get thru to a rep. What really ticks me off they will not sent a tech even though I have the protection plan. I think the receiver is bad. Any suggestions on how to solve this problem? Sorry I have been so long. Thanks for any help.
