Fortec Mercury II Problem
Here I go again...
Got up this morning -- off today, so figured I would power up all my receivers and what not...until I noticed that on the Fortec Mercury II, I was on SBS 6, Ohio News, and pressed the OK button for it to display the other channels I have scanned in on SBS 6 and noticed in the bottom corner where it displays the TP, is says "?-360.0E" as the TP information, I am getting Ohio News fine but it displays that, so when I went to change the channel to the MUX on SBS 6 it turned to G10R, I was shocked...When I went to channel info it said the SBS 6 MUX was found at 11720vXXXXX on G10R. So I went to the other sats in my system and all the TP information for all my channels on all my sats now says "?-360.0E" or "11720vXXXXX G10R"----therefore when I changed the channel, no matter what channel or satellite location, it goes back to G10R unless I go thru the menu and force it to change to a certain location. Does this for both C and Ku bands.
What has happened to my system?
You know I lost the cband fta on it the other day and took a month of Sunday's to get it back...
Am I going to have to reset this stupid box again, for the 3rd time, and lose it all again? If so, can someone please give me a recommendation for another box? Because I have not been impressed with this receiver at all.
Thanks.Dish Network 622, Motorola 4dtv DSR 922, 10 footer cband, Pansat 9200, gosh, just too much to list!

I got home yesterday and find my FTA out too on my Mercury II, however I have a feeling it was the 60 MPH winds we had yesterday which probably knocked my Dish out of alignment.
Looks like I trek outside this weekend with my LCD TV and Receiver to fix it.Scott

I don't have a Mercury II, but on my Fortec Ultra this sort of thing was common, I had to delete ALL but one transponder from all satellites (You will not loose any stored channels) then it started to behave again.

So just go thru each satellite and delete all but one TP, and then rescan each sat? Do I do a channel backup? or a factory reset?Dish Network 622, Motorola 4dtv DSR 922, 10 footer cband, Pansat 9200, gosh, just too much to list!

Keep them away from ALL HEAT generating devices.

No need to rescan as your stored channels will still be there No need for channel back up or factory re-set.
Remember this was with the Fortec Lifetime Ultra, but its still worth a try before doing a factory reset and loosing everything!
Just go through each satellite and delete all but one TP.
