Sounds like it may be a bad Joey, has problems with the nightly download. Try to swap it with a Joey that works correctly, if it does the same thing we will have eliminated wiring as a possibility.
of course they willjbones said:I actually am doing that today. I'll wait till tomorrow and see what happens. If it is a bad Joey I wonder if Dishnetwork will replace it?

Don't use a wrench !davejacobson said:Make sure all the cable connectors are all good compression connectors. Connections not just finger tight us a wrench and snug them. Its being discovered that even a slightly loose connection will cause issues.
jbones said:Swapped out with another Joey from a different room and is still doing the same thing. This is the only Joey connected to this Hopper. Could it be the Hopper? Just stays on looking for Hopper. and doesn't connect.
Yes, and put a bit of heat with a touch of solder on the mating threads while you're at itdavejacobson said:Finger tight is not tight enough. The connectors will loosen over time.A gentle touch with a small 7/16 wrench is all you need.When I say gentle I mean GENTLE.I guess alot of people might not know what that is and twist till it breaks. Just an ever so slight bump is all you need. 20yrs and I have not twisted one off yet but I have seen people that have. Did I say gentle touch yet?
