Hello all, Just hooked up my utv for the picture in picture feature. The problem being only a few channels work on the pic in pic screen. The rest say searching for satelite signal. I went into settings and both tuners are locked in at 88 and 76 respectively. Any ideas or has anyone else run into this before?

thanks

Is this a new installation? Do you have v3.2 or v3.5 from an upgrade (via satellite download); or is it still at v3.0 or v3.1 from "out-of-the box"?

Bennydog --

Check the signal strength on all of your transponders. I'll bet some of them are showing low -- either for 1 tuner or both tuners.


Problem could be either the tuners (less likely but not impossible) or the connectors on the cable (more likely especially if this was a self-install).


The "searching for satellite signal" message means exactly what it says --- the tuner is not getting a signal. So if you have a primary picture, but the PIP windows contains the message, then the tuner being used for the PIP window is not getting a signal.


I had no signal on 1 of my UTV's tuners but only on a couple of transponders. Replacing the connectors I crimped myself solved the problem.


You will have to do some process of elimination (switching incoming cables, etc) to determine which one is not right.


Good Luck,
