Anyone in NC having issues with 118/119 not showing up or is it just me LNB that might be screwed up?

EDIT: Seems to be the LNB as the switch says there is a connection but no signal. Dish can't get anyone out here until Fri. morning.

I've had Check Switch reporting outages on 118 as well. I am looking forward to the Raleigh locals going live on 61.5 so I can retire the 118 feed.

Let me know what the technician finds. My "Detail" shows numerous outages occurring with 118.

Seems to be a drift with my dish. Climbed on the roof and tweaked it a little bit. Will be installing roof mounts in a few weeks when I get some help.

When will 118 be on 61.5? I use that over 129 and would be happy to go back to my Dish 500/Dish 300 setup since all that are on 118 are 4 locals HD's. Maybe the Eastern Arc will be nice ... one day.

Not sure when it will be turned up but I look forward to it. Alas, my DISH1000+ will be another boat anchor.

Yes, but many boat anchors get better reception than we do with our 1000.2's and 129...
