I have a Dish 1000 & vip622. While watching tv1 my wife went to the other room to watch something else on the sd tv2. It could not find the satellite. I called Dish and the problem was cured with a "soft reboot." I am just curious: how can tv 1 be working fine while tv2 cannot see the satelite?

Electronics are a strange thing, especially when there may have been a power fluctuation and then the software program gets corrupt on various parts of them system. But also, the ViP 622 is like to 2 receivers that share some of the same parts.

Think of these rxs like a computer because they basically are. Sometimes the best thing to do is reboot the system. In fact it is usually the first thing to do.
