Was or is Directv having issues or rather testing some of the TP's on the 101and 103cb? Cause I noticed the other day and yesterday that TP 1,9,17,25 on the 101 signals were in the 70's when normally they are 97 98.

Also on the 103cb TP 7-14 were all low 80's when normally the are 89-95.

I rechecked my alinement after sandy and this is what i came up with. Did the storm do something to Directv in some way, or is it just testing ,or is this a possible start to an issue with my equipment? Today numbers are good.

How do I know if its a Swim issue?

Over the weekend, I noticed that transponders 1, 9, 17, and 25 on 101 all had signal levels in the 86-87 range, instead of the 95 or 96 that I normally see. I periodically checked the levels for about 2 days, and they continued to be lower than normal, but around mid-morning today, they seem to have returned to their normal levels and have remained there. The signal levels that I was seeing on all other satellites, including 103cb seemed to be around the 95 that I would normally expect to see on the Ka satellites and 97 on the Ku satellites.
