I have an "older dish" & don't have the problem, but this is not to say you don't.chitownguy said:I had my second service call yesterday to check into why the my MPEG-4 encoded locals in HD sporatically work on my HR-20. While I took the whole day off from work the service tech actually came at 11:30am instead of the 1-5pm window!!.... After explaining the issue of the locals in HD only coming in occasionally he asked if I had the 'older dish'...he informed me that this is a 'known issue' with the older dishes and the slimline dish fixes the problem seen...
I am hoping he is right and had to schedule another install for this dish, because obviously it would have been too easy for him to have that in his truck already...
Anyone heard of this being the 'root cause' of the HD Locals issue...??
What is the power from the 99 & 103 SATs? Go into setup and check your transponder power. This might be the cause [if it/they are low]. You dish might just need realignment.
