Mine here in NC did the same drop to 0 within the past 10 minutes. Now back up to 89 on TP11.
Man I want to see Law and Order in HD tonight in MPEG4 instead of MPEG2!!! C'mon turn on TNTHD already!!! It's in the online guide!
Depends on the source.
I got home and testing in time to see 96 here on both tuners in the suburbs of Nashville! Woohoo! First worthwhile signal I've had on 103 since I got HD last October.
But now I'm reading zeros again. Oh well. It was fun while it lasted.
That (signal drop) was the 3:30 break at the facility in Cali. They should be back momentarily....
"Searching for satellite signal" is the correct response. Signal on 103(b) Transponder 11 is what we have been watching.. Looks like you are OK.
Someone else had no signal on TP-11. They might have a problem.
97 on 103(b)TP11 in the Chicago burbs for a few seconds, then it went bye bye.
So doesn anyone have some theory of what they are doing that would make it go up and down like we are seeing?
A theory in the chatroom is that they're testing different power output levels, trying to get the best signal with the least amount of power.
But honestly, it's a shot in the dark...no one knows...been down for quite a bit now, though...
Good theory. If the Chatroom worked for me reliably with Firefox on my Mac I'd be in there discussing it too. Too close to prime viewing time to fire up Safari just for that.
My theory...it is that guy in the garage flipping that switch on and off...asking his wife.."Honey, do you know what this switch is for?" [while the neighbors garage door is going up and down]
I think it's that same guy! :lol:
Alrighty... I am so excited... I too am showing all zeros, but on a side note, all my HD channels except for Fox are showing not purchased, call customer support 721. Is anyone else getting this?
All of my HD channels are fine.
Try refreshing your services online...others have posted this today and it seems to be a "side effect" of the new HD tier beginning to be activated.
Yep had the same thing earlier. Just re-order it like you would online and it will be back in seconds.
Chicago Sports channel 640 has an HD channel. So I now have two channel 640's. I don't think this was there before.
Works OK for me.
Actually, I noticed it for the first time a couple of days ago. I went into filters and selected HDTV and there is was. Sweet addition but no idea when it lit up. Not today though.
I have the same thing going on with my hd channels too. "not purchased" call sustomer support 721.
Hope it has something to do with the upgrades.
