At least I got to see the new error messages in L6.30. A little more useful than just "Acquiring Signal". They differentiate between partial signal loss and complete signal loss and offer some steps to try to solve the problem. Nothing I didn't already know but may help newbies to Dish.
BTW, at one point I checked signal strength and watched it go down below 20 and back up to 45 over the span of 30 to 40 seconds.

I had a couple of drops during the afternoon as well while watching channel 200. Not the right time of day for a solar conjunction outage. I checked the dish to see if it was blocked and it wasn't. I thought of the solar outage but noted that the shadows were wrong.
I've been having problems today with partial and complete signal loss on transponder 10 at 61.5 while watching channel 209. Wonder if it's just me or if Dish has a problem there. That satellite is a clear shot for me. No trees anywhere near line of sight. Weather is clear for hundreds of miles in all directions. Haven't had problems with other channels we watched.
