So to trouble shoot myself before I get someone out.......what should I be looking at?
The HD decoder requires good reception on both HOR and VER transponders. If there is a problem here, the boot cycle does not always complete properly, and then other things start going wrong.
SO we have to know that the antenna alignement, especially the skew angle adjustment on the LNB is correct.
Tune to channel 101 (VER) and see what the signals strength and quality is like, then tune to channel 184 ( FTV) and see what the values are, both need to to have very good signal strength and quality should be 100% and not varying. If there is a problem here it is most likely thta the skew angle adjustement is out. the older SD decoder was much more tolerant of installation issues than the new HD decoders are.
