A professional installation?

: welcome to Satelliteguys TermiNader!
What are your signal strengths with the D12? Are you certain the R16 is working properly?

With a non-SWM system the r16 needs a cable from the dish to each of the tuners; if you only have one connected you will get searching for signal.

Can he change to single tuner in the menu before completing the setup?
