During setup message says I have a problem but I can't find fault so far, I have run a test from menu and no error is shown, only on the initial setup satellite and confirming installation step have I seen the message, a little help woud be appreciated.

New HR22, new BBCs setup in same location as previous HR21 that is now in a different room.
During satellite setup message of "errors on tuner 2".
But signal strengths appear fine, and channels seem fine so far, I can record 2 items at the same time.

1. Is there a something I should try to confirm I indeed do have a problem as far as proper function of the DVR?

2. I suspect a BBC problem, I'll swap these this afternoon to check. Anything else I should check?

3. I did a menu reset, still get the same message.

OK I switched the BBCs with the same input cables attached to them to different locations. I now show errors on both tuners on 103. Channels 480 and 481 say the BBCs are working. Any ideas? As far as I can tell I have all my channels. Signal meters look good on all including 103. Should I just ignore the error message I get during installation confirmation?

Transponders, if a more detailed account helps I'll get that latter.
103-s
96-24-91-74-91-45
82-45
89-86

103c
87-85-82-83-81-79-79
80-80-78-80-85-79-na-na

I wouldn't necessarily worry about these error messages, if everthing's working OK. I always go by the signal strengths, not what the software says is "OK" or "Failed."

Thanks Stew. A few more questions.
1. Are their certain channels I should check to be sure I have no issues?
2.What should I look for with my transponder strength reports?
3. Or is it OK to just look at the signal strength meters?

CH's 206 and 501 are on 99(c), while CH's 202 and 242 are on 103(c). Here's the complete list. Excellent alignment gives signals which are mostly all in the 90's on 99(c) and 103(c), unless you have an HR21-100, where they can be 10 points less. If you have good signals on the HD satellites, but no HD reception, then you've got a problem. :)
