Are Food Network, Spike, TLC and Syfy on the same transponder?

    I have little or no signal on my HD DVR (HR22-100) on the channels listed above. There may be others involved that I haven't noticed. They come in fine on my daughter's SD receiver. Weather is not an issue. Nothing blocking the dish. All cables are tight and the signal is lost on input 1 & 2 alike. Signal strength tests fine (90+) except on transponders 4, 18 and 28 which are all 0.

    Any ideas? This is very frustrating.

    Are you checking signal strength from other orbital slots like the 99?

    Remember the HD and SD versions of the channels come from different satellites so it's not unusual for the SD ones to be OK and the HD ones not. You need to check your signals on the 99c, 103ca and 103cb satellites.

    Here's the link to the TPN Map. The Excel has the answers to all your questions http://www.dbstalk.com/showthread.php?t=206618&page=2

    Here's a quick response to help you:

    Spike Chl 241 is on TPN 18 of D12 @103W - 103CA Display
    TLC Chl 280 is on TPN 10 of D12 @103W - 103CA Display
    Syfy Chl 244 is on TPN 10 of D12 @103W - 103CA Display
    Food Chl 231 is on TPN 10 of D12 @103W - 103CA Display

    You have some commonality on TPN 10, but you apparently have a good signal level there.

    Thanks for all the info. I think I only checked on 101(?). I will check the others if it starts acting up again. I will also check if it is windy out or a certain time of day or any other things in common. It doesn't always happen, but when it does it is always the same channels.
