I'm getting ready to put in a trouble call to DTV, but before I do I want to confirm that it's just me. There haven't been any widespread signal issues lately, have there? My setup: HR21-700 and HD antenna (whatever that's called...) SWM I've had this setup for about 2.5 years For the past few weeks I've been getting a lot of sporadic signal problems, resulting in a lot of choppy DVR recordings (even on days with little-to-no clouds). I usually don't catch it as it's happening since I don't watch live TV, but I did get this error code once during a test: 43-70-73-684 Which is the more likely culprit -- the receiver going bad, or the dish being out-of-alignment? If there is a dish alignment problem, would that result in those kinds of symptoms? --> usually a perfect signal, but occasionally going wonky? Or would a mis-aligned dish just be "all crappy, all the time"?
