Searching for Satellite Help

03-05-2006, 12:46 PM
My current setup is a tivo with 2 tuners in the basement and a rca reciever in my bedroom. The rca works fine but the tivo tells me SFSS. So i brought the tivo up to the bedroom where the rca worked great but on the tivo unit i still get SFSS. What could be the problem?

I assume you tried both SAT-INs?

I also assume you tried a re-config in satellite setup, and made sure your correct dish is chosen.

It's almost like the tuner-section died. The tech-support folks can walk you through some step by step troubleshooting tips. It appears the problem may be local to that unit.

If you are using a single coax feed you will need to set up the TiVo for a single tuner use otherwise the tuner you didn't connect will give you the searching message. Also you need to be sure to hook up the sat 1 tuner only. If you are using two feeds they need to be home runs back to the dish or multiswitch. You can't split satellite signals.
