I finally figured out the reason that my 811 was consistantly dropping either the 119 or 110 satellite. For some reason the ground was interfering with the ability of the receiver to switch the LNB the signal was coming from. I guess there must be some stray voltage causing problems. Anyway, no more ground, no more problems. Maybe not the safest solution but if it means no more check switches, it's worth it. Just another thing for you guys to try. I'm interested to see if this works for anyone else.
