As of 5:45 EDT the New York SD locals are off air with a Dish generated card stating don't call, we know about this and are working on it. Any info?
that shoots down my theory that it might be the TPAll Superstations except for WSBK have the message up. So it's at least in New York City, Los Angeles, and Denver. Those channels went down at around 3:30 this afternoon.
Eastern Arc only. All superstations are fine on my WA, but not the NY ones on my EA.
Is it sun spot season?Think thats already passed.The issue we had last week was on the western arc with our locals they were out around an hr.and displayed the no need to call message.The 612 on the eastern arc was fine,so were the sd locals.
An outage like this suggests a backhaul problem. The arcs are uplinked at different locations since the Eastern Arc has to be uplinked underneath the spot beam (or an adjacent one) and the western arc is uplinked from other locations. Perhaps someone with a backhoe cut the fiber.
