    I'm watching ABC Family HD and it's breaking up a lot and occasionally saying Searching for Satellite Signal in 2...(771), so I though that was weird because the skies are perfectly clear and other channels are look fine. I checked my signal strength and they are all in the high 80's to low/mid 90's.

    Yeah, it's real bad. Tried to watch Grounded For Life & it was a mess.

    That's what I'm trying to watch, I switched over to the SD version.

    I had some breakups on some locals and also noticed on MSNBC HD about 30 minutes ago. It lasted for about a half an hour and I also noticed about the same time yesterday.

    Yes I am getting it too. The sd signal seems okay. I checked my signal levels and everything is fine (80s and 90s). There many channels with this problem.

    We've been discussing this in another line for ESPN2 and Tennis channels. Check your signal meters. On the 99c, does it jump from 80% or so down to 0 then back to 80? That's what mine is doing. First tuner 1 drops to 0, then it jumps back up and tuner 2 drops to 0.

    Mines pretty consistent with low to mid 90's and one 88. ABC Family HD seems to be working now, just as Grounded for Life is ending.

    I had a similar issue with my locals last week, I traced it back to one of the BBCs being kinked up in the back of the media cabinet.
