Question about Samsung SIR-TS160 DirecTV DTV Receiver

Open Question

Only receiving signal on 1 satellite

I'll admit that I have had this problem for quite a long time, but if you can help me correct it, I would really appreciate it.  My SIR - TS160 worked great for the first couple of years after I purchased it in 2003.  In 2005 I lost the signal from 2 of the satellites.  I had DirecTV come out and they checked the dish and that checked out o.k. They tried a different receiver and everything worked, so it must be the receiver.  I did not want to replace the receiver at that time because I was going to wait and get a HD Tivo later on when the price came down.  Well I waited too long, they no longer are associated with Tivo and the receivers that they have now are not that reliable. Hopefully, the next best thing would be to repair the one I have. Here are my symptoms: Satellite (A) 101- 85% signal, Satellite (C) 110 - 0% signal, and Satellite (B) 119 - 0% signal. Is there a common problem that would cause this or am I out of luck? Any help you can provide will be greatly appreciated - Rick

    I have the same issue. I can receive the SD channels and they have sound. I can receive HD signals, but only video, no sound. My receiver shows no signal for two of the satellites as well. What the heck is going on?

SOURCE: receiver loses time

This receiver can be set up to grab the time from whatever channel you're watching. Is it possible that one of those channels has their server clock set wrong.

My 1997 dodge caravan will start then it will die when this happens none of the gages work, also when i am driving it the gages will quit working help this has left me sitting with the kids in the car


The instrument cluster needs to be replaced. However, it'll have to be removed to determine the color of the plug in the back. 1997 is usually red. If you hit the dash above the instrument cluster (with the key in the run position) you'll see the gauges come on (sometimes it has to be hit a few times) and it'll get you where you have to go. I only suggest hitting it a a diagnostic technique of to get you back home. I hope I've helped. You can check my testimonials if this seems somewhat unorthodox. I'll admit that it is, but it works. The instrument cluster contacts most likely have small cracks in them. Do the lights on the temperature controls flash also? Thanks for using Fixya. Please rate my assistance and leave a testimonial.

Off air with SIR TS160


Hi druggist , I recently bought a Samsung SIR TS 160 unit from the Goodwill for $14.99 (no remote though) and I was very sceptical as to whether it would work but I thought what the hell it's only 15 bucks .Anyway to my surprise it works great and I do not and never have subscribed to Direct TV , I don't even have a satellite dish (am using an indoor antenae) and I get about 19 TV channels 10 of which are HDor DTV .Granted occasionally I have to move the antenae around a bit but not much . I also took my box to my friends house and he has a rooftop/outdoor antenae and there were no problems whatsoever .
I doubt Direct TV can deactivate your box in anyway ,especially for off-air programs.
Good Luck
Ted
ps my TV does not have a HD tuner either.

Receiver will not respond from imputs from the TS160 remote


You are probably using a non-oem remote or one that is from another receiver, not the one that originaly came with the unit.

You should try to get one with the factory remote and not try to save a few bucks.

Maybe a neighbor has complete unit you could get for a reasonable price.
