    For the last 20 minutes my HR24 and my son's H24 have picture and sound breaking up. Looks almost like rain fade but it isn't.
    Checked all signal strengths and they are 92 and above on all sats.
    None of the strengths are flickering or changing while this is going on.

    UH, while typing this I now get the 771 error. Strange

    I did some more digging and it appears all the channels that have this are on the 99ca satellite.

    Same issue here in Dallas. Doesn’t seem to be an issue with my locals.

    Just got done working in my attic and I’m glad I checked here before going back up there and tearing everything apart. Getting the same thing on a lot of channels. Locals don’t seem to be affected.

    This company is clueless. Despite hundreds of complaints on Twitter, they are still on Twitter telling people with the issue to either DM with account information or to go through troubleshooting steps. Just stupid.

    What’s funny is that the sports mix channel on 205 is fine, but any non-local channel you tune to it is bad.

    No, its not really funny, as it actually makes sense ...

    As the SportsMix channel is coming from another satellite 103(cb), which is the "T10" satellite at 103° W.L.

    It appears the issue is with the national feeds coming from transponders on 99(ca), which is the "T14" satellite at 99° W.L.

    I'm glad to see I'm not the only one. I was about to start trouble shooting in my attic as well, but now I don't have to.

    The only positive for me is that I'm recording a game on an NHL channel, and it's not affected. My wife is pissed, though, because HGTV, Food Network, and Cooking Channel are all breaking up.

    Same for me. I wonder if DTV is aware and working on it.

    looks like they are. This is from their Twitter account 15 minutes ago.

    “We are aware you may be having trouble watching some HD channels on DIRECTV. Try switching to SD as we work on a fix. We apologize for the inconvenience.”
