    Is anyone having a problem with ESPN 2 HD breaking up here and there. ESPN HD is fine but ESPN 2 HD breaking up.

    Yes, it is breaking up like crazy. I turned the Mich State game on for a while but I can't watch it.

    ESPN2HD is one of a few national HDs on the 119 satellite. Also check HDNet, it's also on 119.

    I've been having problems with the 119, and actually DTV is coming out tomorrow to check the alignment of my dish (it's on the roof, so I can't do it myself).

    I'm willing to bet if you check your signal strength meters, you'll see low numbers on the 119.

    Check your reception on the 119-deg satellite.

    That's the problem. My signal strengths on 119 are 53,64,48 for transponders 22,23 & 24. Signal strengths are 52,58,56,52,80&52 for transponders 26-32. I called Directv about an hour ago and they're sending someone out next Saturday. I guess they'll have to realign the dish.

    Interesting. HDNet is also doing the same thing. I don't know why it would just start doing it out of the blue when it has been working.

    Signal strength is anywhere from 47-52. At least it isn't just me, so I doubt its my dish.........hopefully they get it straightened out soon.

    Is it worth calling DTV to report this?

    ESPN2 has been having issues all day today..

    Right now during the Illini broadcast, they have had to drop the audio because of all the issues.

    Even on the SD feed it is all messed as well

    Yeah, there has been major problems with the Missouri - Illini game. But, it is a little better now and Illinois is doing better.

    That was a local problem at the game and not DTV.

    I have been watching the Missouri - Illini game. The picture has been real good. They lost audio at the end of the 2nd quarter but has been ok in the 2nd half.

    My ABC HD feed is having the terrible echo. Was happening during the Wake-BC game and now same thing for Cal-TN. Non-HD sounds fine.

    No problem with ESPN2 so far here in Cleveland. Picture is great, no breakups at all.

    Well, I watched the first part of it out on the porch on cable and it was pixellating with sound hesitations, too, so I don't think it's D*'s problem. must be source problems.

    Mine just has a ton of breaking up, same as last Saturday.......maybe I'll have to get someone to come out and take a look. It can't even be watched at this point.

    OK, so does anyone have any more info here? I checked ESPN2 and HDNet last night - they worked fine. Today? Breaking up again. I guess I may just have to call and schedule a service appointment?
