I just got Directv and I find on the satellite 101 the transponders 4, 12, 20, 28 has a zero reading or either a low reading around a 12 to 22 signal strenght. if i'm not mistaking the 4, 12, 20 transponders has zero (0) reading and the 28 transponder has a low reading. is anyone else having this problem? are these transponders in use? or is this a problem I need to correct? all my other transponders are getting good high readings like from 91 to 100. any info appreciated. thanks..... Taz

Those transponders are "spot beam" transponders. What you are seeing is normal.
