Re: 771 - No Signal

What are the  model numbers of your boxes?  What happens if you swap them?  Does the problem stay with the "bad" box, or stay in its room?

Re: 771  - No Signal

You say signal strength 96 but are you

Getting that on all transponders look in the same menu you found signal strength if you are missing every other

Transponder then there us a hardware problem somewhere

Re: 771 - No Signal

I ran new cable and the problem was solved.  The orginal cables were about 18 years old,  something so simple sometimes can work wonders.
