Thanks again for the help.
I switched the lines, I have two going into my box, one a DECA and one a band stop filter.(which was the original problem I had years ago that you guys thankfully saved me from, the installer, who took 7 hours to install Whole-Home and one box to an existing system, put everything on one line so I would lose signal every hour and only could record one thing. )
I assumed, being that which I am, that the DECA would go into input 1, but apparently only input 2 provides power, because it lit up once I switched them. Now its working fine and I can get back to watching the Cup.
Thanks for the help. I hope my rambling in the thread, and your awesome help, can one day help someone searching for the same problem.
