Had an experience with an Elite that I immediately assumed was a boot loader issue. I became suspicious when I discovered the issue was intermittent and symptoms would vary from no VFD(front display) to always "booting". In all cases the channel previously displayed before power recycle would appear on the monitor after normal reboot time.

Turns out the harness from the VFD was not well seated into the main PCB.

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!
