The dispaley states "aquiring antenna" but never finds it,can this be fixed?


Yes. However, it depends on what is causing the acquiring signal message. It could be that you just have to replace the dock or antenna. But it could also mean the unit is going bad, in which case it would need to be repaired. www.tss-radio.com has a repair guy, though with that unit being discontinued for as long as it has, he may not have parts. You may have to search around for a replacement on amazon or ebay.

Dish Network 322 will not work both TV's at the same time. If TV1 is on it works fine, but TV2 says aquiring satellite signal. If TV2 is on it works fine, but TV1 will say aquiring satellite signal. Both...


Hello! Dan Busa with Dish Netywork here intermittent signal loss like that is usually caused by some sort of glitch a hard reset ( unplugging it for ten seconds ) will usually resolve this. If your signal strength is at or above 80 that should be fine, but keep in mind you need good signal strength on both the 119 and 110 satellites ideally you should be at 70 .

I have a Nuvi 200w that I received last December as a gift. This unit takes forever to aquire a satellite. The "DIFFICULY AQUIRING SATELLITES" message comes on 90% of the times I try to use it....


While under warranty.... yes.... Make sure it's been registered on their site before calling them and requesting an RMA number.

Good luck!
