    Funny everything that got remapped work off the jump. Those that where already remapped didn't.

    Obviously the problems were temporary, that's why the changeover was done so early midweek.

    Model: H20-600

    Not sure if this is re 99 or 103

    I found the same problem this morning, about 6 AM ET.
    I ran the TP strength, and I believe I was missing odd or even on either 99 or 103. (I should have written this down, but I was already running late this morning. I then checked one of my HR20-700s, and I had no picture or sound on 501 or 537 (no Searching for Sat popup, just a blank screen). About an hour later, I checked the HR20-700 again, and both channels were fine. Signal strength acceptable on all sats. (I'm getting 60s and 70s on 103 and 99, and 90s on 119 and 90s on 119 and 110, so it's time to reaim the dish.)

    Didn't have time to recheck the H20.

    Could be coincidence, but I had one HR20-700 (NR) that wouldn't respond to the power button on the remote. RBR had no effect. A cold boot eventually woke it up. (My other HR20-700 was fine)

    All was fine thereafter.

    Not sure if this is related but I have had spotted pixelation issues on other channels that started last night on my local SD and HD, HGTV, HGTV HD, VH1, Food, Food HD, and Foxnews. These were the only ones that I watched yesterday. Every few minuets it would pixelate in a spot on the screen for a couple seconds then be fine for a few more minutes, it was getting a little annoying. All signal were in the upper 80's to 100 on all sats. This was on different boxes as well - R15, H21, and HR20.

    I checked signal strength on 99(c) this morning. I only had values in the high 70's to low 80's on tuner 1, but they were all in the mid to high 90's on tuner 2. I do not see this on any of the other satellites. Any Ideas? I sure would hate to have LOS due to the tuner 1 reception. I am using HR20-100

    I have signal strengths on D11 in the 20's-30's. I called Directv to get it repeaked and they told me they couldn't do it until I actually lose service! It's a perfectly clear day here, and my signal strength is low, yet they won't fix it until the signal actually goes out. Is this normal, or did I get a CSR in a bad mood?

    I'm not getting a signal on quite a few channels, locals WPIX and WWOR, ESPN, ESPN2, HBO (501), and a few others. SIgnals on 99c are at peak 55 on any of the transponders.

    just call and tell them it's not working and you are physically unable to trouble shoot

    Call back. A different CSR might give you a different answer. Do you have the protection plan?

    And some of us get our exercise by calling customer service.

    (Actually, we get exercised by calling customer service.)

    There is some logic behind that response, because transponders which are not actually being used for any channels may not be operating at full power. If you have such low signal strengths, you should get searching for signal messages or unacceptable pixelation on affected channels. Base your complaint on that, and then mention you noticed the signal strengths are very low, so you think someone needs to come out and align your dish or do some other kind of repair.
