Well: I have lost the 118.6 international dish satellite. It has disappeared from check switch menu and no channels are showing. Has anyone else been experiencing this?    drjohn

Guess it's time for you to call for a service call.

It was out here in MT at the time as well.  Just in time to miss Music Japan when Koda, Mizuki, and Kara were all going to be on... *sigh*.  I've seen more signal losses in the past month than in the past year--maybe I need a service call too.
