Your lucky I am getting Zero on 4 transponders 3 5 7 and 9. :)

What Dish Network is doing is they are now using Spot Beams, what this means is that they can use and reuse transponders (such as 3 5 7 and 9) to send local channels to various areas around the country. Now with 4 spot transponders they can send the same channels it use to take 9 transponders to do.

If a spot beam does not reach your area you will see a zero signal, its ok nothing wrong at all.
Hey Scott

I wonder when Dishnetwork will put all of the locals in the San Francisco DMA? I only get eight out of seventeen , most of which are PBS stations and Spanish. The former NBC affiliate is on the side satellite, but they have a really good news operation better than the now NBC station which they just purchased. I hate to go to the trouble of getting another dish for one station. :wave: :wave:
