I thought it was originally due to the heavy rain today but apparently not
Heavy rain would not yield a message, it would have knocked all signals out for a very short period of time. This is something very odd, very rare.nuzzy said:I thought it was originally due to the heavy rain today but apparently not
uh oh, I hope this isn't seriousHot Tub Johnny said:Same thing in Raleigh, NC.
Do they have anywhere they post about service outages? They clearly know about it based on the message on the tv.
jeezus I hope they didn't loose a birdeileen22 said:Same thing in Philly, it's been at least 6 hours now.
Check the transponders signal strength on the two or three used for your locals. If they are on, but there is no programming, then the bird is ok. More than likely a break in the fiber line from the East coast to Colorado.SteveHas said:jeezus I hope they didn't loose a bird
I posted in the D* technical forums, but got no replyeileen22 said:I sent a tweet to @DIRECTService, and they responded very quickly and said that the broadcast center is still working to resolve the problem. That was 2 hours ago. They didn't say how many markets were out.

thanks Davenlr!Davenlr said:You are only interested in the two or three transponders on one of the (s) satellites used to send your locals in HD. The others may have 0 and be fine. Since yours is only one of several east coast cities that are out, I suspect its the feed rather than the satellite.
Been over 6 hours now...they better be VERY generous with the credits!!!Davenlr said:No problem. I feel sorry for their twitter reps...Just checked the twitter page, and they are just repeating the same line over and over for the last 5 hours
no, I haven't checkedDavenlr said:Kind of surprised they havent turned on the HD DNS channels for the affected customers. Have you checked the DNS channels?
