    Any help will be appreciated.

    When the new VOOM HiDef channels came on-line, I went to
    the roof and moved my 148 dish to point at 61.5.

    Everything was fine until about a week or so ago. I lost half
    of the channels. (Error - Signal Lost...) Then I lost all of the
    channels including CBS-HD.

    But I still get TV5 fine from 61.5. Signal strength on some
    transponders are 0, others are 75.

    Before I climb back on the roof to re-aim, does anyone have
    a clue that something else may be going on?

    Thanks. George

    It could be (in order of likelyhood) a bad connection, bad cable, bad switch or bad LNB. All of these could account for the problems you are having. What kind of switch/LNB are you using? Also what receiver model. This will help in trying to figure out where the problem might be.

    See ya

    Good point! Could be new growth that is partially blocking signal. Since Rainbow 1 provides a much lower signal strength in many parts of the country than E*3, it could be just that!

    See ya

    The dish needed to be nudged a bit!

    After an adjustment and sig-strength topping at 103, all the VOOM channels are
    back. Now I need to look at getting these bolts to stay put in the wind!
