    Earlier today local channels were fine. I now receive the infamous Searching for Satellite (771) error on local channels only. It's a beautiful day here so there are no obstructions that I am aware of. My dish is a 5LNB Slim Line and completely free of any obstacles.

    I believe here in Central PA my locals come in on Satellite 103 and I have checked signal strength on all transponders and get 43% at the most on both tuner 1 and 2. Don't know if that is adequate and if it is not what might be the cause of my problem.

    I have done some searching for my specific problem, but have not been able to identify a potential cause.

    Any help would certainly be welcome especially since the Olympic opening ceremonies are only hours away.
