Yes, I just noticed that my locals are gone.
I only have premium movie channels. At 7:45 AM ET I checked 1/2 dozen or so at random and ALL of them are dark!Originally posted by J Rath

Yes, I am having the same problem on the west coast.
It is also difficult to get through on the phone to dish...
Chris, I think you have it backwards, all the core packages except some 20-30 channels from Top 150 are available from 119 and most of the affected chanels were in the Top 50 and Top 100 packages, all my Top 150 additional channels from 110 were fine.Originally posted by Chris Freeland
Of the channels that I checked this morning it seamed to be the 110 channels that were dark, the 119 channels that I checked were ok. I am not home now to check.
I did not do a lot of checking however the channels that I did check that were out early this morning were my distant nets from Atlanta and Denver which are on the 110 satellite's. The Superstations which are on the 119 satellite's, they were fine when I checked them. I assume they are all back on now but have not bean home all day so I do not no for certain.Originally posted by JohnL

BTW the outage is mostly over, it appeared that the Satellites were still beaming their signals but either a problem with the Uplink facilities and or a FEC problem was affecting the affected channels and tranponders; Affected transponders were 6, 8, 10, and 19 from 119.
