I got Dish Network set up a few days ago with two dual-tuner 322s. The two TVs on one of the receivers work great, but I'm having problems with the other receiver. I noticed that it sometimes said "acquiring satellite" when changing channels, then it would sometimes say "check switch." I tried the check switch test and now I can't get any programming. I called Dish tech support and they seem to think it might be a cabling problem. They're sending a tech, but not until Monday. Any ideas on what I could try

volkodav, thanks for the reply. :) The Dish installer got rid of all of the cable TV RG-59 cabling and ran new RG-6 from the Dish 500 to each of the two dual-tuner 322 receivers.

I think I would get a 502 error when I would do the Check Switch. Sometimes I could do a Check Switch with the cable from the dish disconnected to clear everything out then reconnected it for another Check Switch to get it to re-acquire 119 and 110. Even when I did that the Installation Summary screen had the wrong information. It would have two other ports next to the 119 and 110 for each Satellite Input. Satellite Input 2 had two 110's listed.
