Second DirecTv box unable to locate a signal

Hi
I have a Hughes model SD - DVR 80 hooked up to an 18 Inch x 20 Inch Triple LNB DIRECTV Multi-Satellite Dish Antenna. I have four feeds coming into the house - two of which are connected to the above DVR. I also have an older Hughes box - model HIRD - D2 that I want to use in another room. I just hooked it up - the phone connection is good; the card is still good; but I'm getting no signal from the dish. My DVR is pulling in a strong 95 to 100. I have tried connecting using all four cables with the same result.
My System Test shows the following:
Version 4031.0,0,0
Signal - unlocked
Tuning - trying
Phone - OK
Access Card - OK
Front panel - OK
When I test the strength of signal, I pull all zeroes. Any help would be appreciated.

    Is the simple answer - it's not multi-sat compatible?

II just want to ask a question about a TIVO DVR.


You can buy a used DirecTV with Tivo. You probably had a Hughes SD-DVR40 or SD-DVR80 before. The used model needs to be transferable to your account (which means it can't be leased, it has to have no outstanding charges on the previous account, etc). And you have to buy a new DirecTV card.

If you are in the San Francisco Bay Area or in San Jose, write to tivorepair@gmail.com and they should be able to help you out.

Can hughes sd-dvr 80 be used as stand-alone dvr?


not without a subscription to Directv. after it enters the box it is basicly a Directv signal, it has to show up on the program guide.

Pixelating & freezing of picture


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.

The voltage is supplied by the power-supply through the RF/IF interface usually encased in a metal box on its own. Also without knowing the model number of your unit I cant help any further.
