    Both of the new BTN hd alt. channels are in my guide (218-1 & 219-1). However, I am getting "searching for satellite 771" messages on both of my H20-600 receivers. BTN 220 hd is fine, as are the alternate sd channels. All signal strengths on 103b are mid to upper 90s. Also all other hd channels are fine. Any suggestions as to what is wrong? Thanks.

    I think they will be part time only channels,like some of the RSNs.They will most likely be on when they have a live event going in HD.

    Yep, 771 on 218-1 and 219-1 on multiple receivers. I tried rebooting a H21 and that didn't resolve. Guess I'll wait until 11AM and see if the game comes on else it's the dreaded call to D*.

    That may be true, and if it is then don't show in the guide that there is programming on that channel, should say Upcoming:Ball State@Illinois.

    Both are up with studio show here. BTN was probably waiting for Earl to give them the go ahead. :) ;)

    When I first checked them during the pregame show, they would show either the "searching for satellite 771" or a black screen for a few seconds before the channel popped up, but once they "latched on" the channels seemed to work fine.

    Both of the channels did eventually come on for me at about 10:45 so I guess I jumped the gun a bit.
