I woke up this morning and turned on the TV and my 811 wouldn't lock on the sat. I went into the point dish menu and i'm seeing strengths of about 30-40. I looked on my other receiver and it's fine (80-100). I rebooted the 811 twice with the front panel and unplugged it for a half hour and tried again, still no luck. I thought it may just be fried but why would it get any signal at all?

is this something anyone's seen before?

check

coax connections, check them ,also, you might have a switch problem, do you check both receiers strength on the same tp or channel?

well i stuck an old reciever in where my 811 is and it picked up the signal just fine. So it's definately the 811. it seems to work fine except for the signal strength. the OTA still works fine. guess i need to buy a new reciever ?

811's on ebay are pretty cheap but i kinda want a 622. Can i run a 622 with just a dish 500 and a legacy twin LNB? My other recievers are legacy.

Ya, you can but,, I don't think you will get the MP4 HD channels, unless you have a 622 and a D1000.
