I'll have to post more as we're unfortunately going around in circles now, but I won't be available to assist beyond this.

I will remove the ES and doe this although with my current setup using the ES it is working though
This is incorrect.
You cannot just connect one Universal port feed from the SLNB into the HD PVR by any method as that would only be allowing for one of the two signal polarities constantly needed for proper service.
The only possible way is to use one of the SLNB's Unicable ports for this decoder as well.
Please go back to my last post, all needed feed solutions are there and will definitely work.
The Indexes I have suggested there were to allow for you to make an easy transition to future changes, but you could use the ones Geoff has discussed since just as well
(he was mostly focusing on current needs for now). Make sure you have the right frequencies for the Indexes you do choose, and don't forget to do all the Index settings before doing all the Frequency settings.
If you follow the advice already given then all should be ok, else problems will certainly resurface.
All the best with it :-)
EDIT: I say "should" as there could be other concerns involved, it's still not clear why one Explora wasn't working. Either way, these issues need to be correct first.
