    It seems that there are a lot of channels that have a Technical Difficulty slate up. Here is the list of what they are at the time Im typing this:

    9410 - Link TV
    9415 - FSTV
    9417 - HTVN
    9418 - PAEC
    216 - Catalog TV Infomercial
    217 - Auction TV Informercial
    218 - Mens Channel
    219 - TV Mall
    223 - Healthy Living Channel
    405 - TVG

    It seems that its limited to PI or Infomercial channels (except for TVG which is sports) Did the source satellite go out for these channels or what?

    I do know TVG comes from Galaxy 11, and I checked other channels that use that same source satellite, and they aren't having problems, so it could be something else too.

    The infomercial channels, and HTVN are slowly coming back on now. Whatever it was, its coming to an end.

    BTW, I decided to take a look at the live internet stream of the PAEC PI channel, and it was fine. Maybe something happened on E*'s end?

    It was something at 61.5 mostly. As I mentioned the Hallmark at 61.5 was interrupted while the Halmark at 110 was fine. So it was something at Dish.

    See ya

    Maybe Dish should adopt a policy where if they have technical difficulties with a channel that they temporarily put up a shopping channel with a message about the technical difficulties with the original channel.

    A TD slate popped up again later on 9417 due to a problem on HTVN's end. Sometime after the channel came back, a public service announcement got stuck in a repeat loop, so I decided to pop a tape in and record it. After awhile, the screen went gray, and E* threw up a TD slate again.

    What's so "COOL!" about this??

    Do not be selfish... Regardless if you watch any of them or not - you are NOT the only one out there.... (i, for one, do not watch any of them neither (but then i do not watch much of anything to start with anyhow) - but that's besides the point) .. The bottom line is - you are NOT the only one out there :rolleyes:

    P.S. on a different note.. by the way - that PAEC (EPG name for ch. 9418) reminds me of your name.. all letters match :)

    Not your channel by any chance? :D

    I have seen this before on HTVN 9417. A repeating PSA loop. Seems to happen during the overnight hours mainly. Perhaps they don't have 24/7 human master control?
