Could be a cable or switch problem. Check all fittings/connectors. Also try swapping ports on your switch and see if the problem follows, or stays in the same location. If it's your 301 that continues to have issues, then focus on cable and fittings. If it moves to another receiver, then I would suspect a switch issue.

Same problem here. I did a check switch test and now it's locked and telling me I need to check one of my sat inputs. Reboot does not help either.

Try unplugging both sat cables and run a check switch to clear the matrix , then replug in the sat cables and run another check switch. This should clear the problem, if not then you really have a problem. Call Dish and get a replacement recevier or a tech visit to look at it for you.
