My friend has a 6131 with external LaCie hard drive. He's using a Dish Pro Plus head on the roof. He told me his receiver stopped working for 3 days and made a squealing sound when the sat cable was plugged in. Then out of the blue, it fixed itself for a day... Now again, it's squealing.

I've been taking receivers apart for 10+ years, never had one squeal on me. Anybody know if this indicates a faulty component in the receiver, or maybe he's getting some feedback from a faulty head?

Going to go inspect tomorrow night, just thought maybe someone else had the problem as well.

Thanks in advance.

Check the line and connections to make sure there's not a short somewhere. Also, a splitter on the line somewhere will have the same effect.

When a receiver makes a squeel or buzzing sound, that means a short in the cable. Check the connectors for exposed braid.
