    Over the weekend, I noticed I was not getting my local D* provided HD channels (NBC & ABC) Raleigh Area. I got my regular local, but the HD locals would not work. I check my SAT signal, and 103 read 0 on the first six and N/A on all the rest. In the past, they had read very low, but what do I do to get these back?

    Note - it was not bad weather - clear skies last night, and still wasn't seeing SAT 103

    I only have 1 receiver to check this out - the HR20

    Anybody else in Raleigh or elsewhere having the same problem

    I don't know if your local HD comes in on the 99 or the 103 SAT feed, so I can't tell you which you need to have.
    Check the 99 signal also. This is only a guess: you may need to have your dish realigned to get back either the 99 or 103 SAT signals. One of those transponders is where you local HD channels comes from. Your SD locals come from another Ku SAT & not the Ka [99 & 103].

    There's another thread here somewhere where several across the US complained of lost Ka signals on Saturday.
