Code 771 Error

Will snow on the bottom 1/4 or less inside the dish cause a code 771 error?

It can.  Also any active snowing between you and the satellites in space will affect the signal.  


If you can safely reach the dish, gently brush away the snow with a broom.  Some folks use a "sooper soaker" style squirt rifle with warm water to melt away the snow.
