I ran into this exact problem. When I went to do the initial install/activation the receiver would not download the initial "software" update needed to initialize the receiver. So I temp. rigged a second input to LNB2, let the receiver download the necessay updates, and then disconnected the second lnb. After that it ran fine with just one tuner. I am using an old dual lnb I got with my 2700 way back when so maybe that has something to do with it.dfm said:I just got a 3200 and tried to hook it up. I only installed one satellite input (#1) and the unit wouldn't lock onto the the satellites. So I phoned BEV. They told me that you need to install the two incoming satellite inputs as if you just hook up only one, the unit will not work. I was planning to hook up the other input at another time. Has anybody only hook up one satellite input and got it to work? If yes, how do you get it to work?
Falcon - do you have the release version? Current version = V102GEHDFalcon said:New software available. It disables ITV and improves search functionality.
They should still show up in the guide but ask for the password when you attempt to go to one of them.johnny_marin said:I had the 3200 installed over the Xmas break and now I'm trying to lock out certain channels so that my kids don't get trigger happy with movie subscriptions. I tried the process shown on channel 198 but it doesn't seem to do anything. I get into the lock channel menu screen, choose the channels I want to lock, click done, then go back into the main menu screen and the channels are still showing up as if nothing happened. Am I missing a step?

BEV just replaced my 3200 due lockups and that's the version they pushed this morning to this new IRD. As well, I have several friends that purchased 3200’s from F&F, they too have had their 3200’s replaced due to various problems
Problems seen so far:
- Loss of Secondary tuner [TV has white screen], or cannot turn on secondary tuner [floating logo]
- IRD sudden reset / boots
- Primary tuner fails to change channel, in any mode. Tuner locks on last working channel.
- During bad weather when signal level falls very low, IRD fails to find transponders when signal strength returns.
- IRD fails to boot properly when power switch used to force hard boot. Requires numerous boots to restore normal operation.
BEV Support advised me that will be pushing new firmware sometime in the early new year … possibly after the 6100’s are updated.
