    None of my music channels are working. Got a 771 message. Is it just on my end, or is there a system wide problem?

    771 is almost always in your end, unless a satellite falls back to earth! Or goes off-orbit.

    You may want to post your signal readings....

    Tuners #1,2,4, & 5 were 97-99%, but tuner 3 was 58-60%.

    We need the actual satellite readings

    Fill in your readings for each satellite and tuner on the new post you create, using the example below as a guide. (The example below is only an example and not a form that will appear in your post unless you "cut" and "paste" it.) A properly aligned dish will show 80-90s on most of the relevant transponders (although some will be low or zero):
