    Can somebody tell me what transponder and satellite WCBS New York and WNBC New York are on? I have been having an awful time with the CBS channel for the last week to ten days and now the NBC station has been acting up. I get bad pixelation problems and then I get the 771 error message. I have unplugged and reset this receiver so many times over the last week and a half I've lost count. I would appreciate any help.:mad:

    Do you have DNS service for those channels? Are you trying to get 80 and 82 (MPEG2) or 390 and 392 (MPEG4)?

    110 carries the MPEG2 version of WCBS and 99 has the MPEG4 versions of both.

    What are your signal strengths? My guess is your dish needs tweaking.

    I'm having trouble with 80 and 82. I can't get my locals in HD so I get the NY stations. Thanks
