I’ve lost transponder 23 and I can’t figure out why. Used to just drop on rainy days or cloud cover but now clear skies and all other channels work except for what’s on this transponder on two recievers connected to a slime line 3. I’ve done soft reset on both recievers and tried new cables and swapped out to spare good lnb.

Have you tried checking the signal strength numbers again and is that transponder still low? Are you getting ESPN HD on channel 206? That's one of the channels on that transponder.

You might try rerunning the satellite setup just in case it's a freak thing.

It's fine for me. Are you getting 771s on those channels or something else?

771’s message on all 5 channels; have done the sat setup again. That used to cure this bug. But this time I can’t get rid of it. I have spare used lnb that is giving me the same dead transponder.

Hmm, must be cabling or a connector then. I suppose it could be the dvr/receiver.

Thought the same; ran a new wire out the window and bypassed all my old stuff and still same problem. Two recievers one dual tuner and one single tuner. Both of them same problem.

Your overall numbers are a little low, so realigning the dish may help. When you ran the temp line did you still use all splitters?

Very strange, I'd almost wonder if there was some sort of interference nearby. You might want to see if there is any pattern to when it comes/goes, like certain times of day.
