Good signal on 61.5 and 110 but 119 has low signal strength. Just checked trasnsponder 7 and it is dropping into the single digits. Many channels are experiencing intermediate complete signal loss. I have two 722 DVRs and have been a Dish customer for more than 12 years. However, if I can't get this fixed my family will force me to go to DirecTv, Comcast or U-verse. I know I have some tall pines in the way but would a re-aim or larger dish be a possibility. Please help, I don't want to lose my Dish Network.

Since all of Atlanta's locals are on EA (except one - ch 14) I would suggest a full Eastern Arc upgrade assuming you have better LOS going that way. You would lose your SD feeds for most of your locals, but that's not usually something most people care about. PM a DIRT member here to see if they can get you setup.

I've been told that although I can clearly see 61.5 that 72.7 and 77 are lower on the horizon and that I do not have an acceptable LOS to them. So am I SOL???

61.5 is 142 degrees at 43 degrees elevation
72 is 159 degrees at 48 degrees elevation
77 is 166 degrees at 50 degrees elevation

So 72 and 77 are both farther west, and higher than 61 where you are (if you are still in Atlanta)

It's nearly impossible to diagnose LOS problems over the internet, you really need someone there. Also, we're just assuming it's a LOS issue. Maybe your 119 LNB went bad. I'd have Dish send someone out to take a look.
