Both boxes continue to ask me to reboot after scanning Router 1&2. Only on these channels and on no others.

If you are trying to conect to the internet, find the router and enter the required info. you will get a "connected" view.  Then re-boot the reciever to establish a conection.  Go to the enternet in the menu and check the speed.   There is something about these boxes that require a re-boot to establish the enternet conection.  Hope this helps.  Jess out in California

My question was too vague. Routers 1 and 2 was for the NASCAR feed on AMC9.

Receivers sometimes get messed up trying to load channel maps or scrambled signals...

But I was looking forward to answering your router question though... [smile]

I'm curious....    did you leave the receiver on an event transponder like that, which shut down the previous day?

Reason I ask is that my Elite occasionally does something similar to that when tuned to transponders that are kind of going on and off while testing when the transponder just came up, but even more often when I leave the receiver on a transponder that is shut down after a sporting event.  It's usually just a one time thing, and the receiver works fine after the reboot.
   For example, I've been watching the PGA golf for the past 4 days.  After watching on Thursday, I left the Elite on the transponder, and switched my TV to local programming.  Friday morning, I turned back to watching via the Azbox, and I wasn't getting video, despite a strong signal, so I tried to scan the channels in again. When I tried this, I got the "problem, please reboot the receiver" message (or whatever it says).   After I reboot, the receiver is back to normal.  After watching on Friday and Saturday, I switched to a 24/7 transponder, and the next day I don't have any problem.
   My theory, is that the Azbox gets confused when the transponder shuts down, like it's waiting for something or perhaps it has a memory leak that's used up all it's ram space or something, and when I go to scan a new transponder or even the same transponder, it can't do it.  
   I can leave my Elite running on a 24/7 transponder for months with no problems, but if I leave the receiver on a temporary transponder that shuts down overnight, the odds that this will happen seems to be much higher.
   I don't think this happened with earlier Azbox firmware, but this has been happening on my Elite for the past year or two with newer firmware.  
   In any event, I now try to turn my Elite to a 24/7 transponder after watching temporary transponders, and I usually don't have that issue.  I'm confident that this issue isn't a corruption issue, as it seems to be unrelated to whether the receiver has been used for a long time or has recently been wiped clean for a fresh start. My Elite doesn't show any corruption symptoms otherwise.  It just seems to be that certain temporary transponders seem to confuse it for some reason if I leave it on those transponders overnight and the shut down.

My normal procedure is move the dish to the position and then fire up the AZ box. When the AZ is up I tune to the channel desired. When my viewing is over I turn off the AZ and move my dish to g1/3.

I think any Nascar race located in the north east of Maryland is hard to receive a strong signal.

Thanks to everyone for your input.

My az ultra does the same thing when it's been sitting on a temp feed and the signal turns off, after sometime of not watching. Even changing to an active channel on the same sat will not do any thing. I just do a reboot and I'm back in business.

Fellow Members, your posts are welcome here! Do not worry about posting everything perfect. Different receivers and LNB's will give you different Frequencies and Symbol Rates. Some set top boxes, PCI cards and USB receivers, Do Not Require all of the same information that others may need. It is not Required to post everything that others may need to tune in a feed. It is just most important to share the find. We can always adjust the Frequency and Symbol Rates and try the various Modulations and FEC's on our own receivers until we get a lock and then give a polite reply with what works for your receiver, as that information might help others as well. We all appreciate the efforts and energy of the Posters!
