I've been getting numerous momentary signal dropouts on at least two transponders on 61.5 tonight for the last half hour or so. Is it just me?

It might just be you or the 61.5 sat is fixing to lose another transponder or two . I noticed the last two that failed ( 18 & 32)when it happened and it made the front page of this website. Which two transponders is it?

I kept getting error 002 on TBS(HD), TP22 according to the list, while trying to watch the Band of Brothers, it was earlier maybe 5 or 6 pm last night.

I am getting a steady 45 signal on both transponders right now . I also backed up eastern arc dish with a dish 1000.2 with lnb adapter to get just 129. So just in case the 61.5 sat craps out , I have 129 to fall back on.

I'm noticing dropouts as well, on ESPN2 HD channel 144 transponder 2 on 61.5. During recording last evening I kept getting recording interrupted message pop up. My strength on 61.5 is around 50 and normally stable.

Ive been having random drop outs on 61.5 since the current heat wave began here in the northeast. Right now I am getting a signal strength of 9 or 10 on TP27 (foxnewsHD). This is seems to be more of a day time thing. Is it coincidence or can the extreme temps affect the reception of signal? No rain clouds etc (no rain expected until the weekend..)

The sat only needs to last one more month. Will it make it?

I wonder what the bookies are saying.

August should be interesting.

This has been happening to me on FOXNews this afternoon and evening. TP 27 has been at 40 everytime I checked. I just did a power plug reset before I saw this thread. I thought it may have fixed it, but it just started doing it again.

It's really messed up right now and 27 is still at 40.

Appears to be OK this morning.
TP27 up to 47 from 40 yesterday.

Anyone still having problems?

I wrote down my 61.5 strengths on the 23rd of June for comparison when E15 comes hot. TP 27 was showing 48 on that day and I have a 47 now.
