    DIRECTV will likely never specify what happened, unless its something which by law they have to report to the FCC or their stockholders.

    I had discovery tuned on my iPad for awhile and the technical difficulties slate just went away, so Discovery is working (at least on the iPad).

    Uplink for CONUS comes from Castle Rock, Colorado, if I recall correctly.

    Could be a failure on either the transmit side or the receive side.

    Weather RADAR suggests it isn't weather.

    Actually CONUS programming is from the LABC here in Marina Del Ray, CA. Castle Rock is mainly LiLs and backup for CONUS should LABC go down due to major earthquake or some other.

    Not so sure it's a sat uplink issue. iPad / iPhone live streaming was also affected.

    Downlink or fiber issue ?

    Well everything we watch is back.

    Yeah but some that came back went out, at least Spike and TruTV. So I changed my guide to show SD duplicates and changed favorites list to "channels I get" so the wife can watch what she wants.
