Melanie says she never shuts her dish receiver off. But she did say that her mother, very non tech savvy pushes the wrong buttons on the remote and it comes up with that message.

You know tv, vcr, aux, sat buttons on the top of the remote and that is when the message shows up.

Whats up with your dish now Steve?

Sun spots? Lol they give me that excuse when we loose signal on a cloud free day. And I have Direct TV.
