Hi All,

HELP I am constantly losing my signal during the daylight hours. During the night it is usually no problems. Luckily I work long hours during the day but when I DVR stuff ... I keep getting badly taped shows.
During playback on my DVR for daytime taped shows... it loses the signal constantly.

Any ideas? And how big of a fix is it ?

THANKS
Brian

I had this happen before and replacing the LNB on the dish fixed the issue. If I remember correctly, I wouldn't lose signal on both of my dish boxes... but it sure was annoying none the less.

What satellites are you receiving?
Are the channels on a particular satellite?
What dish do you have?
