    No signal from 119. Neighbors out as well. Anyone else?

    8/18/07 15:20 (Central)

    Back online - 15:30, but signal is going in and out.

    15:36 - Out again

    15:44 - Back again.... I think 119 was made in china, must have been part of all these recalls ;)

    I was sort of hoping it wasn't just me! 110 and 119 out for me, 110 on both inputs and 119 on one.

    I have been losing signal off and on for the last couple of hours here in the midwest. Wonder what's going on!

    I'm getting 110 & 61.5 but no 119. If you call Dish, you go through the normal voice/number menus and then a recording answers and says "we are unable to help you at this time" and hangs up!

    odd....I am sure it has happened before, but never seen that in 11 years with Dish. Signal strength has also gone to pot, but at least I am back.

    I lost 119 and 129 (did not check to see if 118.7 was gone also). I kept 110 the whole time, so once I saw what was going on I made sure to tune to a channel I knew was on 110 and just leave it there.

    So I haven't checked to see if things came back yet.

    Be interesting to find out what happened. Maybe a storm near an uplink location?

    outage during Busch race...

    Reminded me again how useless the 'lost signal' messages are. Let me choose a working signal, like OTA directly from that screen. Dumping the guide data is also kind of lame...

    We have been with E* for only a few months and this is the seconded time this has happened. This outage sounds similar to the first one.

    Could have been lightning, or Charlie didn't pay the electric bill. I wonder how much it is, off hand? Hundred thousand a month??
