    Tailgater

    I am currently getting nothing from my dish tailgater. I last used it in May with my home 211 K receiver. It worked fine then.. It is out of warranty and approximately one and a half years old. When turned on all I get is a signal search screen and then a total signal loss screen. I have tried the check switch but all I get is currently doing tests 1 of 50 instead of 1 of 3 like I used to get. The only thing that has changed since I use the tailgster is that I had dish install a new HD Dish on the home and was wondering if the installer could have changed something in the receiver so my dish tailgater does not work. Any help would be appreciated

    This would garner more responses in the Dish forum. Perhaps a wandering Mod will move it there.

    I suggest you run a check switch with the sat feed coax DISCONNECTED. This will clear the record. Then reconnect the dish and run check switch again. MIGHT fix it.

    If you have not used the receiver in a long time you may need to hook it up to a stationary dish antenna and make sure it is still working properly. When receivers sit inactive for a long time they get "dumb" and need to have software sent to them again. I've had to do this a few times in order to get mine to work.

    Yep. Quickest way I have found to get this done is to call the dish number, select technical assistance and tell them that you have a receiver that has been out of the stream for awhile and it needs a hit. They won't make you go through all the troubleshooting and will just do it. If you go through the the regular csr it will be a long process.
