After a rainstorm, it takes several days before I get all the channels on 101 and 103 satellites. I do the setup and see that both even and odd are failing on both locations. When everything drys out, it will pass.

I have a 5-LNB Slimline that feeds a multiswitch that is located in my attic. The most likely culprit would be loose coax but it seems odd that both even/odd are failing (multiple coax). Can moisture get into the LNB and degrade it?

It has been 5 years since the dish install done by a professional. Will Directv fix this for free?

If moisture gets into the LNB or the coax connections it will degrade or even stop the signal from reaching the receiver.

If you have their Protection Service Plan?.Yes.

With both even and odd of 101 and 103 going bad, it seems like it would imply four separate wires have corroded. That is why I was wondering if it could be in the lnb.

I called Directv and it will cost $74 to replace the dish/lnb. I went ahead and scheduled the replacement. It is mounted 25ft in the air on a chimney which is another incentive to let them replace it.

Thanks
