    MLBEI channels are down. Logo on every game channel, but no technical difficulties slide. Games are available in HD on the RSN of each team.

    Recording of Hardcore Pawn on TruTV is stuttering a lot, then cut out again at 9:12 PM EST. So it's been off an on really. I'll just try to record the later airings of some shows and hope its fixed by then.

    I think it's either those new Erricson HD encoders because the audio / video lipsync was really bad prior to going out. Either that or the video VLAN, switching network or core switch / router issue. Had the issue at Comcast when a bunch of HD went out it was a faulty 10GbE interface card.

    Along with the topic bombing from the same 3 people demanding they add The Blaze no matter what the post was about?

    I like it for the road views and the shows own poor map routing plans the drivers do better and in one EP there was an screen shot that showed an better route.

    I had a Genie and 3 clients installed today and about an hour later all this started. I thought my Genie had a problem until I saw the DTV slide up on Starz. The tech replaced the LNB as well as one of the receivers was indicating bad.

    Except the Rockies feed, which was dark last I checked (though that may have been a public service).

    I live about 5 miles north of the Sedalia, CO uplink and we did have a rather large storm go through right as the channels went down. I was watching Root Sports Rocky Mountain and lost everything for about 20 minutes. I don't know what they uplink from there, but it could have been the cause.

    I moved my recordings to the overnight repeats. Hopefully this national nightmare is over soon.

    This is weird! 3 TV's, 3 HD receivers, TCM is dark on 2 of the TV's, works like a charm on the 3rd.

    And PAC 12 bombing. And asking for refunds. The best one was the woman complaining multiple times that they need to use other vehicles than Facebook. I guess she missed the cards on the actual channels.

    TCM is working right now, if they're still dark on those 2 TV's try rebooting the receivers.

    I doubt it, most, if not all, cable providers have had at least one instance where a technical problem took channels off air in their history. It's just that DirecTV is national so when they have a problem it's noticed across the country as opposed to cable where it's isolated to a specific headend or smaller.
