At about 11:40 AM all of the local channels have been replaced by a static text screen. The message says that dish knows about the problem and to switch the channel to a non-local station. Anyone know what happened? Are they switching satellites/transponders?

Looks like the transponder is down. :(

Is it only Hartford?

When I first saw the post title, I thought it had something to do with SHERVA expiring and maybe everyone lost locals.

The only one working for me is WFSB channel 3. All the other ones have the error screen.

Yes, all is back to normal. Maybe this is due to the 61.5 satellite failing...had to switch to a different transponder?
