I am presently observing those three HD channel breaking up at a Washington, DC in two different systems. One us a Lodgenet free-to guest, using 1.2 meter dishes, LG Pro Idiom encoders and LG pro idiom TVs In the lounge, where there are two H25s coming off a SWiM dish, they are experiencing the same thing. It seems it must be either a satellite problem or a microwave problem. The regional engineer for this hotel says they are not getting reports of it at any of their half dozen other local properties FWIW, beginning in late July, 2001, I had a rooftop getting absolutely blasted by microwave radiation, to the point where they could not get STD HBO at all. I even set up a dish down in the parking lot and dropped a 150' coax down the side of the building, and while that significantly reduced the breakups , they were still unacceptable. The problem persisted for half a year, and then it went completely away. Is anyone else anywhere having trouble with ESPN, ESPN2 or HBO HD?
