Hi,

Over the last few weeks, I've been seeing an intermittent 771 error on my MPEG4 locals. It will affect 2 of the four at a time. either 36 and 18, or 3 and 9. (Charlotte, NC). A RBR always corrects the issue.

I've tried searching, but haven't found if there is any reliable fix or if this is a bug that's cataloged etc. Any help is appreciated.

My install included a new multiswitch with the A9 dish.

Thanks!

I don't know what the multiswitch has to do with the conversation, as you should
not be passing your OTA through there.

I get the 771 when I changed channels, but it clears up after a second.

This has NOTHING to do with my OTA.

It's the MPEG4 locals that it's affecting. I know many are seeing this with their OTA. Mine is not an OTA issue at all. It's the sat delivered HD locals.

I do have them installed. I was considering taking them out. Won't I be borrowing trouble from the future? Any idea why it seemed to just strat happening lately?

Thanks

No, I'm not saying they are the problem, but perhaps a starting point.

It is possible that the multiswitch in your LNB is bad, or the multiswitch outside
the LNB is bad.

The problem with these passive multiswitches is stuff like this.

Coll, I'll keep watching it and trying to figure it out. Intermittence makes it tough because it takes some amount of time to know if your change has had an affect or not. :)
