Last few days, both of my VIP-211 units have crashed several times with total loss of signal errors for Satellite and for OTA and said to power cycle. Signal levels for both Sat. and OTA are fine.

Did Dish put out a bad upgrade lately?

By the way, I don't use 129. Saw a thread about low OTA signals causing problems, so deleted all low signal OTA channels. System crashed with complete OTA signal loss error 3 hours later.

Samples of OTA tuner signal strength?

I ended up re-aiming my OTA and I haven't had problems since.. I was having choppy hits to the screen, along with 4 to 15 points in signal strength lost ... since reaim no problem... signals have been steady (though I should make notice ... this is with a "newish" OTA module in a 722k)
