    Good morning, Earl. Would it be possible to know which transponder they are transmitting channel 498 from? May help in some troubleshooting? Just a thought.

    Edit: Man, the posting is fast! I see my question answered above!

    Good to go in Maine. Maybe we could get Big Ten Network in HD after all?(I know, wishful thinking)

    498 is working fine. It would be great to see some real programing off D10. This proves it is working. How much longer will we have to wait???

    I've got here on one tuner (HR20-700) for first time. Installer coming this morning to check 2nd tuner. You folks on this board have provided a wealth of info this week andI'm truly appreciative.

    Thx.

    I assume that even if we see it correctly, we should still do the "tuner" switch trick to make sure that it shows on both tuners.

    Here's another data point.

    I had posted recently that I had all kinds of 0's in my 103 (b) readings so I ordered two new BBC's. ONE of them came yesterday. :mad: Replaced the one on tuner 1 since it had more 0's. No difference. I figured crap, I need to tweak the alignment, but by this time it was dark out yesterday, so I had to wait. Then this morning I see this thread so I checked 498. Black screen at first due to native switching, but then within moments I saw the slide. I was already late leaving for work so I never did check to see if my signals have improved, but they haven't changed in days so I'm assuming they didn't.

    FWIW, both tuners have 0's on about 6 different transponders, some 90's, some 60's, etc, all over the board. But I still see the slide on 498. Also, I don't see the special HD charge on my account, but then again I'm trying to accept the terms to let me see my old statements (my billing statement just came through on the 19th, so the oldest thing in my recent activity is from the 18th) and that's not working, so it might have been on there, I just can't see it. I don't recall ever seeing it though and I've been checking my recently activity frequently.

    So anyway, to make a long story longer, I'm seeing the slide on 498 here!

    Tried 498, then 72, then 73, then back to 498 - still blank screen

    Tried rebooting, then 498 - still blank screen

    Tried refreshing services (and yes, the charges are on the statement) - still blank screen.

    Tried recording two channels at once and then 498 - still blank screen.

    No multiswitch involved. Dish directly into back of HR20.

    3 HR20s, all getting 720p set via native and no content, no errors/messages on 498.

    All are single tuners at this time, I do only have 1 BBC hooked up on each to the coax run, the other open tuner does NOT have a BBC since there's no cable hooked up.

    My runs are, I would estimate, 30-40 feet for 2 of them, 20 for another. This is to a brand new WB68 I received last week. Run from switch to dish - 15-20 feet or so.

    Signal strength on all 103b xponders is mid 80s-mid 90s.

    Working here in the IE (SoCal) with HR20-100 using Native, but with 1080i turned off (since my TV would have to downconvert anyway). My signal strengths are 58-72 with most around 66.

    I have HR20-700 with the latest CE. Tried the record trick and still get black screen at 498, I refreshed my services and that didn't help. I also noticed that my recent account activity doesn't show anything other than what was there before.

    Have it. The video is jittery ever so slightly. No audio, as stated.

    Spoke too soon. Receiving on downstairs ok but not on upstairs (gray screen). However, the gray screen unit is also indicating a dolby digital signal! (Also tried the 72/73 and dual recording tricks - no luck).

    edit - Correction - NO on the dolby digital audio signal indicator. Recceiver was simply sticking with whatever signal it had been getting prior to tuning to 498 (for some reason).
