My Wally and pathfinder x2 has great signal strength all day but at night but when I cut off my receiver the next morning I get a “complete loss of signal “ screen. I have to rescan to get service again. Help please.

Hey there! I can definitely see why this would be concerning. With our Outdoor system, every time the Dish loses power, it has to reacquire the signal when turned back on. This is by design since most are turning the system off to move locations.

It’s not losing power completely just going into standby mode

I hear you. After being in stand-by mode for so long it will lose the signal. Thus, when morning comes, the signal will need to reacquire.

WORST DESIGN EVER!
The antenna hasn't moved. The channel hasn't changed. There is NO reason we should have to take an hour out of our day, EVERY DAY, to re-setup our system just to watch a little TV.
Rediculous!!!

Hooked up the pathfinder to camper when I got home and it kept the satellite signal overnight. Does not make sense lost signal every night on last camping trip and had to “check switch “ every morning.
