Dish changed the LNB today in hopes of fixing my problem of “Missing beginning of programs” as mentioned in this thread.
Long story short - About 2 weeks ago when I did a Menu>6>1>3 System Info, I got a Red “X” for the 61.5 satellite. 77 and 72 were Green. I thought maybe there was rain somewhere causing this because a day or two later I checked again & thought 61.5 had changed to Green. It could have changed to Yellow but don’t think so because I was not concerned at that time. Either way I never had a problem receiving any program. Could I have just been lucky?
I already had a new 722k DVR coming & replaced it on 5-25-2013 & still had random instances of missed beginnings of recordings. I was now getting a Yellow 61.5 satellite signal strength.
Dish came out today & changed the LNB. But I still get either a Red “X” or Yellow for the 61.5 satellite. The tech did a Check Switch & unplugged the DVR a couple times, but to no avail. We checked numerous times & it’s always either Red or Yellow.
The tech checked a few other Menu screens & said everything is OK & it may just take a while for 61.5 to reset. Obviously I don’t feel confident that anything was fixed because going back a few months ago I always got all Green for all 3 satellites. Has something happened to 61.5?
