Default Authorization Status "MP"

Sorry if this has been asked before, but it won't let me search for something with two characters. Within the last day or so, my upstairs DSR505 has been cutting out. When I came home today, I get nothing. I checked the system status and it shows an Authorization Status of MP, it is S on the one downstairs. Same dish, what's up?

Thank you!

I activated my replacement 530 this week and also had MP for the authorization status. I asked the CSR and he said it stood for "Missing Programming". He sent another hit and more software and then the authorization status changed to S. Did your receiver take the newest software download?

It seems to be back online now. Firmware still at E0, but trip count has gone to 1. Status has just changed to S. We'll see how long this holds...

MP = Missing Program Key. Usually if you wait around 10 - 15 min it comes back on.
