I have Dish at my primary home and at my lake house both on the same account - I know not legal. This has worked fine for several years. Now though, at my lake house all of my channels are not showing in the guide and some of the ones that do show that I should get don't come up. I brought my lake receiver to my primary home and i worked fine there. So, I am thinking maybe my actual dish at my lake house is off slightly and not seeing all of the saellites? Thanks.

Is there "signal strength" or "alignement" indicator in the box settings?

Perhaps the dish has been knocked by the winds, snow, ect, or a tree grew in front of it.

6 TV's in the house on FiOS and we only pay $4.99/month to connect them all!!! Power to the CableCard and WMC7!!!

If both boxes work fine at your primary residence more trhen likely it is your antenna.
As suggested check the signal strength and you may need to tweak the antenna a bit.
