Just happened to go through the guide and saw 480 was a test channel.
Changed to 480 and I get an error message at the bottom.
"Correct HD Dish setup. 103B-Band Odd (13V)"
Have 2 HR20-700's and the message shows up on both tv's.
Should I go through the setup again? :confused:
Everything seems to be working.

That's not an error message, but an indication that you are correctly set up for B-Band Odd transponders. There are similar tests on channels 481, 490, 491, 492, 493 and 494.

I can see how the word Correct in that message could be interpreted as your dish setup needs correcting. But in this case, it means that the dish setup is correct. Chs 482 and 483 are also available for the 99 sat.
DirecTV since '96, Waivers for ABC, CBS, NBC, & Fox, HR23-700 & HR24-500/AM21, using ethernet based MRV.
