Gary Cunningham Posted January 28, 2016 Report Share Posted January 28, 2016 New convert from DirecTV to Dish. Bought a Winegard G2, and had Dish out to install their system. He came late afternoon. He saw the G2 and said that he wouldn't touch anything that wasn't a Dish product, and further, if I installed the G2, if anything went wrong, Dish wouldn't pay for any repair/replacement or service call. (Is that true?) We told him to just hook up the normal Dish, and install the receiver for two TVs in the motorhome. All was well until a week later when I decided to hook up the G2. I did the setup okay, and can use the DVR (which I absolutely love). The problem is that I often get the blue screen of Channel Signal Lost on one or the other of the TVs. The cure of course is a receiver reset, and all is well for sometimes hours, then it's back to a lost signal on one TV. Sometimes using the Up/Down I'll find a station, but can't go to the one I want. Sometimes even that doesn't help. This doesn't make sense to me, since obviously the signal is not lost, since it's on the other TV. So...is my problem with Dish, Winegard, or nobody since this is normal??? The reset is a pain, because it will often mean a lapse of something being recorded on the working TV. (P.S. I tried a forum search, but no results. I'm kinda crappy at search).
