My KVH has lost its programing for the second time...symptoms are ...it will search and search and never find my DTV bird. Then when restarting it, it quits searching period. You turn it on and the green lite just flashes very fast with no upstairs activity. Am I alone?

I had the same problem. I called KVH and using my laptop and tech support they reprogramed the dish. Seems Direct tv changed thier sat codes. Give them a call and see if thats the same problem I had. Good luck...

Had same problem.
Just got coach back from dealer.
They disabled fast startup of dish and told me KVH Tech support told them my receiver could be causing the problem. Don't believe the recv'r is the problem, because I can disconnect the data cable and have the same issue.
If problem continues, I will contact KVH directly and if I get no satisfaction, will talk to Winegard.

And I dont even use the data cable because of known issues! I went to my local RV repair shop and the tech just plugged in the serial cable to the dish and it started its proper search mode with NO other intervention..maybe I just need a laptop with Hyperterminal and serial cable, and not a clue of how to do anything with them????

Had the same problems and more, dealer has had it in twice said it was Dish, replaced with new box from dish. Worked once, back to dealer, repaird went to Essix Junction worked once, newmar tech fixed it and gave me instructions on operation. In New York followed instructions whould not work. Took it to newmar factory, they said it was Dish. Got rid of Dish and put Direct in, worked once, stopped. Took it to Midway in GR Mich and they found loose wire. Worked twice now. Find out when I leave for home after visiting kids in Michigan. If it acts up off it comes.
