See my post. 99% of the time a problem with the even transponders on 103 is caused by a faulty cable/connectors from the dish to the 103/110/119 18v connector on the SWM8. That cable carries the 103 evens. Since the OP does not have a Slimline 5 you can't see the 110/119 satellites - if he did have a Slimline 5 you would see the even transponders were missing on those also.
Although a faulty SWM8 could possibly cause this, it's very unlikely. If the OP swaps the cables connected to the 103/110/119 13v and 103/110/119 18v connectors on the SWM8, he will probably see the problem move from the even transponders to the odd ones, indicating the cable/connector issue.

Ok, the problem was 1 of the 4 wires that go from the LNB to the SWM8. I just swapped all 4 and the problem seems to be solved.
However, when I run the satellite dish setup, it gives me checks for everything except for 110 Odd. 110 Odd is blank. Also 99 Even shows a red x. The YES network does work now.
Its definitely not my house wiring, because I ran a direct wire from the SWM8 to the receiver only 20 feet away, just for testing. I haven't yet used the house wiring. All wires that I am using now are brand new Quad Shield RG6.
