Hi everyone, I recently moved my DSR 305 from our living room to our bedroom, hooked it back up and now I can't get every channel. I am missing TSN, The Score amongst other channels. I hooked up my other receiver in the bedroom and have no problems with 83% signal but the signal strength on 305 is only 35-40%. Also, with that low of a signal strength I shouldn't be able to receive any channels but I do and the ones I do get work flawlessly. Any suggestions? I will probably end up phoning SC but I phoned tonight and was surprised with a wait time of 63 minutes, so, any help would be much appreciated. Thanks.

What is the signal strength on the channels you can't receive? The signal strength varies between transponders.

This sounds like cable problem.

I have 0 signal strength on the channels I can't recieve. One of my buddies said it could be something to do frequency of signal and the LNBF I am using? Could this be something to do with it? I just don't understand because it was working fine until I moved it. I tried back in my where I originally had it and I have the same problem there now too. It must be something to do with the receiver

Hold down the power button for 10+ seconds and the receiver should reboot.
Doesn't work for a legacy receiver.

Sounds like you might want to try a factory reset (though you'll need to call Star Choice to have them send a hit to your receiver). I believe it's Options 6-7-7-8-6 to do a factory reset on legacy receivers.

Best to call Star Choice early morning, or late at night.
