Question about RCA DRD485RG DirecTV DTV Receiver
The signal is very strong on all my channels. By strong I mean the readings are in the high 90's to 100.
Transponder A 101 (32 total at 101) reads 94-100 in signal strength
Transponder B 119 degrees(11 at 119 degrees) 25-32 reads 51, 97, 0, 96, 0. 98, 0 98 in signal strength I believe these are my local channels. These numbers will change were the rest will stay steady.
Transponder C 110 degrees ( 3 at 110) all read 96 degrees in signal strength
The problem I have is that my local channels work some times and some times they don't. This happens to all four TV's in my house. I live in northeast Wisconsin. (Appleton,WI) 54915

I am sorry to hear of your troubles. I am assuming you have another receiver in the house that is an HD receiver as the 510 is not and it would not make any sense for you to have the 129 orbital without it. If you go to the other receiver and are able to get transponder 21 on the 129 bird then the issue lies in either the cabling, connectors, barrels and or wall plate, or the 510 itself. Assuming you were good to go with the hi def receiver move it to the 510 location and see if you are able to still p/u the 21 transponder. If so, the 510 is bad and needs to be replaced. If not the problem lies in the aforementioned areas. if yoou are unable to get the 21 transponder on the hi def receiver also then more than likely the dish needs to be repeaked. If I can be of more assistance let me know. Thanks for using Fix Ya.
