Anyone else having issues with your 942.

I got one connected to 119/119/129 with a DP44 Plus Switch and it can see the satellites, everything is good but it cannot verify the reception.

I had similar issues a few months back.

I kept randomly losing my locals.

In my case it turned out to be that there was no power inserter installed to power the DPP44. Once it was installed the problem went away.

Claude does the receiver have the latest software,

have you tried replacing the seperator if your using one,

have you swapped the lines on the switch,

are other receivers working ok on the switch including any other dual tuner,

does it verify 119/110/129 on the switch test,

what coax is being used and is it rated,

are there wall plates and are they rated,

are you sure there are no splitters in the line ( I have seen a splitter allow a checkswitch but not allow verification afterwards )

I had this issue but not on a 942, unfortunately I cant remember what solved it.

Everthing is hooked up correctly, the only thing I think it can be is that I got 129/110/119 running into my DP44 Plus switch in that order.

Swapped the receiver out with a 622 on the same line but different seperator and it works fine!

seperator


Even in that order it should still recognize and lock, double check the connections from one end to the other, I remember the issue now and it came down to a single braid strand that killed the system the same way.
