    Am watching discovery HD and the picture just went black, green, then back to normal. Now the show is about area 51 and I was just reading this thread about seeing blips when the change is made, so now I wonder did I just see it happen?? Signal in the 90's, and sunny so loss of signal wouldn't be it...

    Signal loss can occur in many other places aside from the satellite to your home.

    I just want to know why it has to take 23 button presses to get to the 103 ca signals?

    Because 22 was too easy.

    There's no way it takes 23 presses. However, it's going to take more than other functions because it's not something you need to use frequently. In order for the most-used functions to be easily accessible, lesser-used functions have to be a little harder to access.

    Las Vegas,...
    I was watching the show. My screen went Black for around 4 or 5 seconds then came alive with same area 51 program minus 4 or 5 seconds of dialog as I recall.

    Raise your hand if your wife/significant other has said, at least once, "Why are you checking that signal again?? Can't we just watch TV??"

    *raises hand*

    :D;)

    I always find these low signals surprising.

    I usually check every few weeks just for the heck of it, as surfing.

    Would always strive for 101, 99 (c), and 103 (cb) in the 90's, at least for some transponders on each. And now add 103 (ca).

    Couldn't imagine not having a peaked Dish as priority one. Also always prefer SWM (or equivalent) to power the Dish as well.
