    Is anybody currently having issues receiving signal on the western arc in the Michigan area?

    Granted it's been some time since the OP, everything's A O K on both arcs here.

    Doubt that there were issues here at the OP time either. We'll see when I go to watch the recordings that were going on at the time.

    Most likely he had Two Hoppers and a Duo Node. There is a known issue with a bad lot of Dou Node switches where if it gets below 20 degrees and the switch is out side or in the antic on one of the hopper system it will report missing signal.
    Dish knows about the issue and it is just with a very small lot of bad Dou Nodes, most do not have this issue. Dish is researching what they will do next, I am thinking a free recall based on switch serial number.
