      Re: no sat signal recieved every morning

      One reason could be that you have only a single feed and have not enabled Single Feed Mode yet. Anytime is disabled by default in Single Feed Mode, and should not be re-enabled, in order to avoid these No Signal messages. By disabling Anytime, you should have eliminated the signal messages. If you don't have a single feed, then you may have some other problem to do with the box, dish, LNB, cabling ( in no particular order ). Also, unplugging the box overnight does a disservice to the LNB, which requires a constant power source to enable it to work effectively. Even in standby a small amount of power is maintained to the LNB.

      Single Feed means only having one cable from the satellite dish, instead of the usual two. You haven't mentioned one or two, so I'm just guessing, lol

      Yes. You may have to re-do it yourself. This may be what the problem is.
