Echostar AD-3000 IP-loss of transponders

I have a Echostar AD-3000 IP which is just over 12mths old but i have noticed it loses channels especially when you are channel hopping. Has anyone else had this problem? Is it easily fixed? It is so annoying that you have to keep doing another download whenever it loses the channels. One minute a channel can be there, the next it is gone. You check what transponder its on but it isn't on any.

If it cant easily be fixed i thought about buying another Echostar perhaps the AD-3000 IP Viaccess©. Is this a wise move?

All the best
Gary

Sounds like the dreaded flash-memory problem.
I recommend you return your receiver to the dealer (if still under guarantee) or Echostar/importer (if not) to have the flash chiup replaced.
See many posts on the ad3000 forum at Satnerds for more info.
