    I'm having reception problems on channels in the 250'ish range, specifically Comedy Central, Chiller and AMC. Chiller is probably the best of the three, Comedy Central I get but is usually pixelated, and I can't get AMC at l. I'm not aware of any other problems with other channels, although there could be on channels I don't watch.

    Anyone got any ideas?

    Could be an alignment issue specifically on the new sats (99/103) can you post your signal strengths?

    Are you using any kind of diplexing or other extraordinary equipment?

    Have you tried temporarily removing or replacing the BBCs?

    It sounds somewhat like you've got something in the system that is interfering with those channel's IF frequencies.
