    It appears I have lost my 99 odd signal. The test channel (563) just gives me a 771 searching for signal. I can not receive many of my HD channels, including HDNM and my HD locals. I'm getting the same thing on both of my HR20-700 receivers. I have a Slimline-5 dish. All of the other test channels, including the 99 Even test channel are fine.

    Does it make sense that I would lose my HD locals & HDNM if I lost 99 odd?

    Also, does this mean the dish or LNB is bad? Or could this be a pointing problem? Any advice is welcome!

    Yes, it makes sense. You are probably missing GolfHd (218) and ComedyCentralHD (249) also. These are on the odds on 99 as well.

    If you are using a 6x8 multiswitch, and have also lost 101 odds, then it is most likely the cable feeding your 6x8. If you have not lost 101 odds, regardless of whether or not you have a 6x8, then it is definately the LNB.

    Hope that helps!!
