Service call was the right call. The tech arrived, did some quick signal testing, climbed a ladder and peeked at the dish about 20' away and immediately concluded that I needed a new dish. He installed the new dish and everything was fine right after he reset the receiver. Thanks for everyone's help here. I'm glad I understood things well enough before his visit to just l...

Hey, let me first say thank you to everyone here. Very helpful ideas, and very generous of you to take your time to think through my situation. I appreciate it. I will do nothing more until the tech arrives. Should I print out the info I have on the satellite readings to save him/her some time? Or is the technician likely to just disregard all that?

- I probably won't have time to try swapping the BBC modules without swapping the cables: I'm not at home much until Saturday when the tech is scheduled. Tuner 2 seemed much the same as Tuner 1: [Most of your standard definition channels are beamed from 101ºW] 1-8 67 67 57 79 0 82 56 80 9-16 57 63 0 73 56 80 0 79 17-24 65 0 59 86 56 79 57 75 25-32 67 0 73 0 71 75 0 82 Sat...

I'm not 100% sure that they didn't upgrade the dish at some point after 2006, but I believe it is a Dual LNB Oval dish. The receiver type is "Multiswitch" They left the original round one in place. I tried moving the two BBC modules, but only kept them with their respective cables. Nothing changed (all the channels I got were the same, all the channels I didn't get were t...

All helpful things so far. 1) I have a THR-22, but I'm not sure which dish. The notion of a dual-LNB comes to mind. It was installed in 2006 when I upgraded to HD. 2) I do have a service call scheduled for Saturday. I do wish to be as informed and prepared as can be. 3) I intend to take down the whole set of information that is typically asked for in this situation when I...

Wow. I wish I had looked at this site over the weekend. I'm not at home and cannot get the whole set of satellite transponder figures. I did look and notice that I got numbers in the 70s at 101 º , and just about nothing but NA or 0 for everything else I looked at. I was not thorough enough to record all the data that seems to be shown in other posts on this topic. In mos...

Yep. And as long as we are repeating things already in this thread, I'll repeat: this feature, usually enabled via a code, has been on every other DirecTV DVR I've owned (two DirecTiVos and the HR21). I'm wondering: are there any other models of DVRs that DirecTV has provided or sold that do not have this feature? I can only speak to the ones I know.

You keep repeating that point, and I keep repeating that TiVo pushes everything back to DirecTV. Plus, the DirecTV support rep said what I have posted: post it here and the people who are responsible for such things might a) know, and b) choose to do something about it based upon seeing it here. How is TiVo to "notice" a request when they explicitly push everything back t...

I'd be happy to let everyone know if the code is found, but it is unlikely that I'll find it. As promised, I contacted TiVo to try to get information on this. Unfortunately, this particular feature seems to be a bit of a pariah: the Chat Tech told me that the feature didn't exist on the current TiVos, despite what the folks on tivocommunity.com say about the old SPS30S co...

I think you would need to ask TiVo about it since it is their software. As I mentioned in the original post, I...
