    i just got a hughes dtv tivo unit. i've had a sony dtv receiver for 4 years and never had a problem. now my new unit has 2 receivers in it. i get a signal strength in the 80's and 90's on both receivers on every transponder except 4,18 and 30-32. on 4 and 18 i get a 0 signal. on 30-32 i get a 50 or so on the first receiver and a 30 on the second except 32 i get a 0. so to recap:

    transponder / sat receiver 1 / sat reciever 2

    4 / 0/ 0

    18 / 0 / 0

    30 / 71 / 56

    31 / 58 / 34

    32 / 48 / 0

    what's the problem? how do i fix it?

    Some of those transponders are on the spot beam satellite. If the beam isn't aimed at your city, you won't get a signal. If all of the channels you subscribe to are coming in, everything is OK. For more info go to the Tivo Community and look in the DirecTV section.
