Transponder loss on Sunday morning.
Posted 01 July 2002 - 11:56 AM
I lost about 9 transponders (2,5, 10, 15, 21, and others I don't remember).
I have been looking for posts from other people about this, but only saw one so far on alt.dss.hack usenet group.
It had to be bad, because even after the signal was back, channels carried on those transponders were not viewable. Black screen and channel info was available but no picture or sound.
I wonder if there really was some major satellite failure and if DTV had something to say about it.

Things were back to normal by 2:30 am CDT. And while DirecTV usually denies any malfunctions at their end, satellite failures have been acknowledged in the past. Which is why I wonder if anything was said about this one.
