    My Local mpeg4 channel are going in and out every 10 min. Do you think the dish need to be peaked?

    Not sure if you MPEG4 locals are on SAT 99 or 103 but what are you transponder signals on both?

    They are on 99, IIRC.

    They are also fine here, at least, since I checked them a few minutes ago. There were some storms rolling through north of here (i.e., near Pittsburgh and it has been very wet the past few days) earlier today.

    They look very similar to mine. So, they look fine to me. IIRC, the PIT locals are on TP#4 on 99.

    I take it the signal is no longer breaking up?

    If it is go to the signal strength screen and select the signal meter. If it is varying (i.e., going from 90 to 30 and back to 90) the most likely culprit would be a unsealed connection getting water in it given our local weather from the past few days. If it is solid - the problem likely is just "rain fade" where some nearby or distant showers were interfering with your signal temporarily.

    Later.
