New to the forum, thanks in advance for the help.

I have a simple setup, just a dual LNB 18" dish using a multiplexer to get locals via OTA and Directv channels through a single receiver. The other day, some of the channels died on me and I can't figure out why. The signal strength on most of the transponders is 50-100, but some are a flat 0. No pattern to even or odd transponders.

So to rule out my receiver, i stuck another old receiver on and got the same problem. So the question is this:

Do you think the prob is my LNB? or the Multiplexers? or cabling?

Oh, because it's dual LNB, I switched the coax to the other one on the LNB. No help.

Never mind. Multiplexer is rusted out.
