[HN7000S] Me or Hughes?

The last two days my system has "shut down" at 1300 and come back at 1900 (CDT). It's as though a switch was turned off/on. When it's down, I get all sorts of red flags. My setup is about 9 years old (7000S is 5 years), so I wouldn't be too surprised if things are beginning to deteriorate. I did try using a wet towel on the transmitter yesterday in case it was heat related (90 here in central TX), but that made no difference. I'm on 117W, 1090, 66.82.156.174, 1 watt. I'd be glad to furnish any other info that might be relevant.

Would it be too difficult to install new hardware on this old fiberglass dish? The window is the old rectangular type and I understand they're a bit hard to find now.

Thanks,
Duane

Must be your system, I'm at 117w 1090 and 66.82.156.167 in southern ca. and no problems. My system is a little over 4 years old, of course my temps have been only in the 50's low 60's.

I am in the deep Southwest and having exactly the same problem as you at exactly the same times on my 5 year old 7000 system. I wonder if this could be related to a geographic issue if people at other locations are not affected.

As might be expected, after I posted here I've had no more problems (yet). The day I posted it got even hotter with no ill effects. It's cooled down some since, so I'll keep an eye on things.

also, it's typically the old style LNB that gets heat sensitive with age - not the transmitter. The transmitter is the larger box with the fins, the LNB is the thing way out on the end of the feedarm.

I had an issue last summer where my internet would quit during the hottest part of the day. What the service guy finally did to fix was to replace the cables from the dish to the modem. Evidently the current cables ran through the attic. When they got hot they must have swelled slightly and had a staple or something cut into them. Have not had any issues since and its been about 6 months.

Still cant wait to get rid of Hughesnet though

Thought I should wrap this up. I have a couple of spare arms with transmitter and LNB. One still gives me the same type problem, the other is working great. Still not sure which part is giving me a problem, but suspect the LNB because the receive is always low when it happens. It's my understanding that if receive is out of limits, transmit won't work. Maybe I'll dig into the LNBs to see what I can find. I'm trying to keep the system going until Gen4 is ready for prime time and get a whole new setup then.

Thanks for everyone's suggestions.

If you're interested, I have a full 2w OSIRIS TRIA w/feedarm and struts available. By August, I expect to have a second set. Both fit the 98cm Prodelin.
