I was up feeding my 2 month old son this morning and when flipping through the movie channels, I noticed that from Showtime up to Flix had a black screen with white writing stating something about moved uplinks and transponders and to try again later. This was at 2:30am PDT. I did not try any other receivers in the house, as I was too tired to really care! :sleeping:

Did anybody else see this or know what it was? Just curious.

I would say that DirecTV was moving channels to different TPs to balance bandwidth or preparing for adding new channels..
DirecTV since '96, Waivers for ABC, CBS, NBC, & Fox, HR23-700 & HR24-500/AM21, using ethernet based MRV.
