Today I bought the above satellite dish recorder. I have followed the connection instructions exactly, but I can't set up the recorder because I get the following message: Antenna Power Overload Detected. What do I do now?

Disconnect the coax from the LNB socket and verify if you still get the message. If you don't then you have a short in the LNB circuit.

Thanks Spyware. I tested as you described, and the message didn't appear. So now what? Is there something I can do, myself, or is it a matter of returning the unit to the shop?

No , it suggests that the issue is with your dish / cabling. Another box would probably give you the same result.

Hi colmack

Yes something to do with the LNB power and this case can happen with your power supply too, sometimes we get cases where customers use other adapters to connect to the unit and has the wrong voltage, the unit won't die but will display the message.
