Same for me in DFW. Glad to see it's not just me. I was afraid it was an equipment problem.

Yep, just lost my HD locals in Dallas also. Only 4, 5, 8 and 11 though. 21, 27 and 33 all work. Weird.

Glad to see it wasn't our equipment; we replaced our LNB a while back.
If you stop responding to them or put them on ignore, then eventually they'll go away.

Chris, you may want to change thread title to include DFW.

Same problem here in Dallas, TX. Not getting HD locals 4,5,8,11, and 13. Just spoke to DTV tech person who took a few checks. He had no idea what was going on and told me to call back in 24 hrs if problem persists.

Are these actually 771 errors? I assume if that's the case the problem isn't with the uplink center itself. Usually a mass outage has an "on screen" message from DirecTV.

I'm also in the DFW market, and I had the same issue until about 10 minutes ago.
