check sat in cable, if cracks or breaks in line can cause sfss. also on back of receiver you want to make sure that sat in cable has a little copper wire sticking straight up and that its getting a good connection on the back of the receiver.
Hi, Pixelating and freezing are symptoms of loss of signal. You need to check all of your connections. Check for water in any connection. Check your satellite signal strength on each satellite and if low or they are all not there you could have a bad LNB but you need to check the LNBs and the multiswitch for poor or bad connections. Also check for any obstructions in the dish view to the sky or for anything that may not have been tightened down on the dish. Snow and ice builtup will cause this problem as well. Good Luck! Let me know what you find.
get new ones i just had 2 boxes replaced 1 was sd-hbh and the other was a hi-def box both were fried cause the nit wit that set up the system didn't ground the dish and we got a lightning strike that fried them.... i would call direct tv or whoever your sat provider is because mine were replaced for free with 2 brand new boxes.... and you should check to see if your dish is grounded it will usually be grounded to a water pipe somewhere in the area of where your multi-switch is located
Go into the menu and check the signal strenth to see if its going up and down or if its a stead as a rock. I have seen this problem be the reciver as I was a satillite contractor for 5 years in the past and I have installed 1000's. I have also seen your poblem be a small brance in the distance cause the freezing, also a bad connector from the lnb on the dish to the multiswitch, or a bad connector on the back of the reciver or even a pinch in the wire but the most common thing I have found would be a loose connection on the back of the reciver with the fitting wasent screwed on all the way.. If the signal is rock steady, the reciver will need to be replaced as the recivers dont pay to be repaired. good Luck
