    I have several SD-DVR40 Series 2 DirecTivos but one of them is having a problem.

    This particular DVR worked fine when I first baked the hard drive with InstantCake. However, about 2 weeks ago, the SD-DVR40 has problems with receiving the input. One of the two inputs has a problem with the satellite signals. The picture from this channel pixelates badly and the DirecTV SW displays an error message on the bottom: "Searching for input signal: Satellite In 2".

    I did some troubleshooting. I marked the coaxial input port for In 2. Then I switched the coaxial cables coming from the satellite. I still see the message. So the coaxial cable isn't the problem.

    I'm wondering how this coaxial cable seemed to work fine when I first brought the SD-DVR40 up but now one of its coaxial cable deteriorated.

    Outside of sending the SD-DVR40 to Weaknees, is there a simple way to fix this problem?
