The only station I get that moved is HDNet and Discovery Channel HD.

I'll try a reboot.

Rebooted. Still same problems. HDN and Discovery are the only two coming in. TP's are 47-50's.

2001: A Space Odyssey looks fantastic this morning. MUCH better than stuff looked on the MPEG2 version used to.

Your signal levels should be higher. Your dish should be aligned.

You aren't getting a searching for satellite message?

I don't see any PQ differences between any of the meg-2 vs meg 4 channels.

Actually no. But funny thing, the power went out last night. When I came in this morning to watch tv, on a hunch I checked again. I now get all of the mp4 stations even with a low signal. Re-alignment will be done in about 3 weeks when I get home from a trip, but good to know all is well with it. Looks great too.


Funny, I did 2 boots and nothing, but this one did it.
