    Check all your cable connections are not loose. Did you get a Dm500C and then the f to coax adapter that converts your screw-on cable connection to a push-fit aerial connection?

    What options do you have in the automatic transponder scan menu?

    You could try flashing another image yes, wouldn't hurt. You sure you have a signal coming into your house? You haven't been disconnected?
