I am seeing problem on AMC channel

I'm having the same issue here in Dallas. Thanks for reminding me about the SD channels. I had them hidden and just changed that. Terrible picture quality, but better than the pixelation on HD.
ATTHelp is telling people to view the SD feed. I wonder if they lost a satellite!
It's not affecting all HD channels, just channels broadcast from their satellite at 99ºW. DirecTV acknowledged it's a satellite issue that they're working to fix ASAP. In the meantime, you can set the Display Options to "Show All Channels" to see the SD channels and view the standard definition version instead of the HD channel.
I'm having the issue too. Although my problems all seem to be on D14@99CA according to the Transponder Map in the following thread...

The one exception to this is ESPN, which IS on D14@99CA, but is not having the issue for me. I suspect that is because DTV changed ESPN to a working Satellite or sub-satellite.
My original (longer) post about the issue in a separate thread is linked below
Picture breakup and not a cloud in the sky or on radar
From what I just now tested it's not ALL channels on D14@99CA, but it IS a vast majority of the channels with the exception of HLNHD(204), ESPNHD (206) ESNHD(207) BRVOHD(237) AUDHD(239) LMNHD(253) BBCAHD(264) FYIHD(266) DSCHD(278) TLCHD(280) APLHD(282) CNeHD(296) NIKeHD(299). Not going to test any further channels on D14@99CA as it's obviously impacted and most/all busted channels now have a sorry for the inconvenience message. The ones listed above are the ones that currently work for me in Houston, TX and come from D14@99CA.
Keep in mind that local channels will be different for everyone since DTV uses spotbeams to send those signals only to the markets for which they are intended.
Looks like it’s back up fully now.
I’d love to know why it took ATT so long to acknowledge the outage.
We will never know what happened
Going with they are working on it
I'm glad it's back up. I'm glad that they didn't experience any kind of permanent failure with the satellite.
You're right though, we will never know what happened and why. They aren't going to tell us, they aren't even going to tell their employees.
Problems like these would almost certainly not be with the satellite itself, but with something in the broadcast center. Somewhere in the systems that prepare the signals for uplink, or the uplink dish itself. It probably takes them a bit of time to identify the problem and either resolve it, or switch the uplink operation over to another site (they have two main broadcast centers, one in LA and one near Denver)
If it was the satellite itself the channels would just go dark.
I wonder how much redundancy and back up systems are on board these satellites? I mean, it's not like you can roll a truck to replace hardware.
What about fuel?
