    Hi All,

    I was watching a recorded program, and it ended while I was in the other room. Sometimes I just let the receiver "time out" and it will go back to live TV.

    Well I noticed that no audio came back on after a long time. I went to look and saw Searching for Satellite Signal 771 error on the screen. I was on channel 4 (NBC). I thought possibly bad weather, but changed to 231 and that was on and working fine.

    The only channels that are out are the "Big 4" (2 - ABC, 4 - NBC, 5 - CBS and 17 - Fox). MyTv, WB, PBS and 22 (ind) all come in fine. I checked on all the receivers and they are out of all of them. I checked the signals and all were in the mid 90's like normal. I restarted one receiver and still they are out.
    Is anyone else having the same issue?

    Also what transponders are these channels on?

    Mine are back on.

    The funny thing was that Transponder 17 on 99(s) was 0, but now it is back to normal at about 95.

    Still have no marker for LIL's on D-12 vs D-10.
    If things go out around that 5AM central time data shift time, one could wonder if there was a satellite swap??
