    Had a really nasty windy storm blow through pretty fast on Friday night here in Hilliard ('burb of Columbus on the West side) and lost part of my downspout and gutter right on the rear corner where my dish is located and the lines run down into the foundation.

    I was playing some PS3 with my nephew so we didn't know anything was wrong with the dish until several hours later after everything had passed through.

    When we tried to watch Shark Tank the DVR was responding really weird and slower than it normally does so I did a RBR and when it came back up it still seemed sort of goofy so I went and looked at the info and test in the DVR menu and it failed the phone line and alignment tests.

    Called and got a service appointment for Wednesday morning (earliest available) and went about watching TV.

    I just went back into the menu and was looking around as the DVR doesn't seem too bad now and while it doesn't say I need an alignment now, I do have some very low readings on some of my sats. 99s and 103s are the worst and I'm thinking I still have an alignment issue even though the DVR menu doesn't say it does now like it did last night.

    your signals are all in the 90s and look perfect. you look at 101, 99c, and 103cb. If you are in the middle of a storm and look at signals and do system test it will likely fail. But when everythings clear , If your dish and wire is still intact, and your signal looks like that, you are ok.

    The signals are fine. 99s and 103s are spotbeam readings. Those signals carry local channels and most of the transponders will not be meant for you.
