I recorded Burn Notice the other night. About 40 minutes in the picture broke up and the HR20 asked if I wanted to delete.

It turns out I also recorded it on an SD DVR and that recording was fine.

Any ideas why the difference? I have noticed occasional picture breakup on the HR20, but this is the first time it stopped entirely.

This usually means that the satellite signal was interrupted during the recording. Check your signal readings on the 99 and 103ºW HD satellites. It's possible that your dish is slightly misaligned, which will affect those HD satellites more than the 101ºW SD satellite.

You will have to interpret this. They are all over the place. I assume there may be some spot beams here, or maybe not. Does the receiver catch the strongest transponder, I hope?

Way about 101? Might be helpful for comparison. The ones labelled (s) are spotbeams, so it's normal to get low signals and 0's there. It doesn't grab the strongest signal, channels are assigned to a particular transponder.

I personally don't like to see 70s and 80s on conus transponders if its not weather related.

I added the 101 into the prior message. 103/28 is the Pittsburgh locals. I think 4, 12 & 20 are locals as well, but I am not positive.

I am guessing the conus satellites are the ones identified as c and cb. If so, the lowest reading is 80, which isn't great but should be okay. I've received good SD signals in the 20s. Nevertheless, are you saying I should have my aim checked?

How would I know where USA (ch 242) is assigned? That is the one I had trouble with.

For listing of what channel is on what transponder:

Thanks. I didn't realize I missed 103(cb) so I added it above. According to the the spreadsheet, USA (ch 242) is on 103(cb)/13 and that reads 92 today, so I am guessing the problem was probably weather related. I just wish I could remember.

Must have been the weather. Suits didn't record either on 8/9 but it was on the SD DVR. It is also on USA. There may also have been a problem directly related to USA because that is the only channel I had a problem with.
