    Hmm, just turned it on 9300 and got the message telling me that I haven't purchased the channel. 9301 is just fine and is still Discovery HD. Did they change 9300 since putting A&E HD on it? Might be just a goof. Hope when I wake up in the morning we have a bunch more at their regular spots.

    I wonder what the deal is. I am still getting the message telling me that I haven't purchased channel 9300. Can anyone tell me whats on it right now and maybe venture a guess why it would tell me that?

    I'm getting the same message on 9300. But it was working yesterday. All the other test channels and 9301 works fine here.

    Thanks everyone - Had the installers back out this morning and now I'm getting 80+ on 103b... and 498's working. Awesome. Turns out not only did the original installer not align the dish correctly, he also used "non-DirecTV-approved" connectors which were all corroded. The new guy said he put on better ones that shouldn't corrode.

    9301 comes in great with Discovery Channel... 9300 gives me a Channel Not Purchased error.
