I'm not versed enough in satellite language to understand a lot of the technical details, but somebody answer me this - why is it that when rough weather rolls through (as just happened to me in NJ) sometimes I only have certain channels effected?
For instance, this storm just came through as I was watching the Mets' postgame show on SNYHD. The "Searching for Satellite" message came on and the signal dropped. Yet two channels right next to it - MSGHD and MSG+HD - were still coming in loud and clear. As were the PGA Tournament special channels along with many others. (FYI I have a favorites list set up with all available channels - both SD and HD - so that I can quickly switch to the SD feeds of a channel when it goes out, since those signals are a lot less susceptible to weather. Is a good backup plan for when this happens.)
Any of you experts want to clue me in on the reasons this happens? Or steer to me to some informative reading? Thanks.
