Can someone provide me with some information on what may have caused this? The machine is a series 2 Tivo on DTV, model number I believe is 540140.
Your TiVo doesn't "search for satellite signals".
Your satellite box does.
Your TiVo only gets the audio and video output from the satellite box.
If you got a signal that said "searching for satellite signal", that's your satellite box, and for all it knows it's feeding that message directly to a television set.
The problem has to be with your "DTV" receiver, your dish, or the cable running from the latter to the former.
