Troubleshoot Error message

I have an Error message saying "Correct HD Dish setup. 99 B-Band Odd." I reset the receiver both ways. How do I address this? Both discussions that I found about this were locked. Strange!

Sounds like a bad b band converter

Its the filter right behind the receiver

That the coax is attached to

Try swapping one from another receiver I'd available

The only other reason I could gather is

You are on the the satellite test channel

That message is what is broadcast on one of the satellite test channels, either 9506 or 9507.  Do you see the same message when you change channels?

As everyone have mentioned, that on-screen message is from the test channel. Try changing channels if you can and see if a new error message shows up.

Thank you all. I discovered that I was indeed on a Test channel, and merely had to switch channels. I have no idea how it happened. I was on the channel when I turned on my television.

To other readers of this thread.  The message "Correct HD Dish setup. 99 B-Band Odd." Is not an error message but rather a confirmation from the test channel that the 99b odd numbered transponders are working correctly.

LOL ...  most people would assume that "correct" is a verb but, in this case, it's an adjective.
