Clear on my end; any connectors on the cable run exposed to water or moisture maybe? Is it only that channel? Maybe it was cleared up when I looked.

It just stopped 4 minutes ago. It was happening on all tvs so it was not a connection issue.

Just 278. I think it was a problem at directv since it was c-band static, not digital pixellation . Its fine now though.

Sun spots and solar flare activity are a separate phenomenon from equinox outages / sun fade. I also think sun spot / solar flare activity that strong should have effected more than one channel and possibly more than just DBS alone.

AND

The next equinox outages (aka sun fade) should not be due yet. Each last about 10-20m / for 7 - 10 days.

Spring Equinox outages: Late Feb/Early Mar

Fall Equinox outages: Late Sept/Early Oct


This year's fall sched is approx:

Predicted Outage| Start | End | Duration| Start | End
Date | UTC | UTC | | CST | CST
mm/dd/yyyy |hh:mm:ss| hh:mm:ss|mm:ss | hh:mm:ss| hh:mm:ss
