I've got an SL3/phase III experimental tailgate dish that I have used for over 2 years, with great results.  Just got a new HD reciever H24 200 for the tailgate dish.  I can no longer see any signals on the 99 and 103.  Get 90s on the 101, but cant tune in the High Def Birds.  Did Directv change the Satalites?  Missing the Red Zone Channel on Sundays.  Whats Going on please help.

If DirecTV changed the satellites, you'd know, and they wouldn't do it overnight. It would take quite a while to repoint or replace 15 million dishes.

No changes to the satellites. Does the H24 require b-band adapters? That might be your problem. Otherwise it would be dish aiming or LNB failure.

Yes, the H24 requires a B-Band Converter when operated in legacy mode. 

DIRECTV sub. since Sep. of '95

PROBLEM SOLVED STILL AN AWESOME DISH.  hooked up old hd reciever and tuned all in. New Reciever will not pick up 99 or 103. Unable to get these birds even when hookup to home system slimline 5 regular dish.  Apparantly reciever has a problem, will call directv tech support and get replacement. Thought the problem might be lnb but definately not now.  Will watch redzone channel at tailgate tomorrow!!

Force a software update...I believe that may be your issue.  If you just got it new it may not have the right firmware.
