I assume you have a Hybrid LNB or a Dish Pro Hybrid (DPH42) switch between the lnb and the hub.

Possibly a problem with the cable from the lnb to the hub?

New problem or new install?

Water could have gotten into the cable and messed it up.

Be sure the cable from the lnb is plugged into the correct port on the hub (to ODU). Host is to the Hopper and clients are the Joeys.

and if you have that DPH42 switch, make sure it didn't get unplugged!

Even if it didn't get unplugged, maybe try unplugging it, running a check switch, then plug it back in and run the check switch again. This procedure should "reset" both the switch and the check switch matrix in the receiver. I have done this many times with a DPP44 switch, and it always worked for me. So, I am thinking that the DPH42 may be similar.

Who are these guys that join, post a problem and disappear?
Uh, it was literally posted this morning, so not even a full day has passed yet. The thread starter may have been busy all day, and has not had a chance to reply yet. So, perhaps a little patience is called for here. (Now, if we still don't hear from the thread starter after a couple more days have passed, I will retract this entire post.)

A couple more days have passed. I stand corrected.
