My wife’s mother has Dish TV Satellite system, it sucks.

Can anyone tell me what the dish charging means?

We have Direct TV satellite System, and we have never heard of this.

When she turns the system on first time everyday it says,

“Satellite Charging.”

WTF is that supposed to mean?

I know a little bit about Sat technology in general. I've never seen that message before, but it sounds like it may have to warm up the feed horns in the LNBs on the dish or something. The actual LNBs (the little things that are on the pole in front of the dish) pull power off the cable line that is being fed from the sattelite box. So, there may be something wrong with the LNB or the sattelite box. Hope this helps you start troubleshooting it. I'm assuming it's not working as a result of this message?
