    When you done the factory reset did you power off the Starview from the back on/off switch for a minute and then continue with the installation? As this will clear the bootloader, also you may need to do an autoscan more than once to pick up all the transponders.

    Sounds like a signal fault either at N**s headend or either the incomer/internal coax to your house. Have you got a subbed box working and are any of your neighbours having the same sort of problem?

    Sounds like a tuner problem alright, best of luck and hopefully you can get it repaired/replaced.
