Dish Tailgater failing?

Hi,
My 8 or 9 year old Tailgater is starting to give me grief. It will find satellites fine and then the next day will lose them. Also sometime it doesnít find all the expected sats so I donít have many stations. Most annoying is having to continually scan and set it up almost daily.

Dish has not been helpful on support, suggesting I eliminate all internal wiring in rig and hook it directly to the receiver.

Any troubleshooting ideas? I donít want to start replacing receiver and Tailgater if there is any remedy.

Thanks

Your LNB in the tailgater is probably going bad. It happens. 8-9 years is about right when they can start to present symptoms of degradation.

I have been using my tailgater for 6 years and no problems yet. I have heard if a gear that turns the dish failing and causing alignment issues. You can see the video here

Thanks both. We moved today and got locked on easily. Weíll see if it lasts.
Iíll check out the video when I get a little beefier bandwidth and if it continues to act up.
