Re: 2nd tuner problem
if you can, run the cables directly from the LNB to the Tivo. If it works fine, then it might be the multi-switch. If it has the same problem, switch the cables at the LNB end to determine if it's a cable or the LNB itself.

My second tuner has recently begun acting up, giving me "searching for satellite signal" message.
When I test signal strength Sat 2 gives me no signal on the even transponders and the odd transponders are fine.
I switched out the lines to check to see if it a tuner problem but then I get no signal on tuner 1.
I bought a new multi-switch thinking that my old when had gone bad but that did not solve the problem.
Is it the actual 2nd line coming in to the receiver that is bad?
Also, the problem is intermittent, sometimes I can go for a few hours with no problem.
Also, if you have really long cables, you'll need a powered multi-switch.
