Default receiver problem

I have 1 receiver, of 3 in the home, that keeps going out. It says searching for signal. I have swapped receivers and it works for awhile then goes out. If I unhook the cable for the eye and hook back up, it usually comes right back on. Is this a cble issue?

Welcome to the site

What type of receiver (Model #) Have you checked the cable from end to end? You have done the first step in trouble shooting by Swaping the receiver-so it's possible you could have a bad connector (if it's other end) is outside in the weather.

It's an older Hughes receiver. The cable is hidden in the attic, so I can only check ends, which look ok. I bypassed with a new cable to just check and so far it's now working. Hopefully that cures it!
