My old Orby receivers were working fine receiving the free feeds. Could see the signal power and quality from 116.8 west fine. About a month ago overnight all the receivers on two Orby dishes went down, and now show no satalite carrier level. Nothing has been moved. According to Lyngsat nothing has changed on 116.8 west. Settings for transponder and signal rate a polarization have not changed. What gives?

Same here in Indiana. my guide doesnt work either due to the missing info from the programming,but the OTA still lists the channels and guide so im still a happy camper. still waiting for orbytv or kiwi sat to get it up and going

Yes, same happened to my two ORBY TV satellite receivers in October 2022. I can still receive the OTA local channels, yet the program guide does not get updated, and the current date and time from the receiver are incorrect. Also, the satellite channels cannot be tuned- displays error message that the satellite channels are unavailable.

This is not a reply but a fix. Do a reset on your Orby box and it will come up with the satellite signal power and quality. But the time on the box will be off about 6 hours, but you can go to the orby channels with video and sound ok. Just the time off means the satellite guide is off by 6 hours. If you go in and reset the time to current time it all goes away. signal strength, quality and the channels show no video or sound on the satellite channels. Your choice is to watch them with time incorrect and guide off by 6 hours or not watch them with correct time. Somehow the new Orby owners managed to send something down to the boxes to manipulate this. Thanks Guys. Makes me really not want to subscribe now at all. ETSREP

I said reset on the previous post. Sorry what i meant was go to system information screen and on the right above the ok is a line that says run setup. Do that and you will get signal level and when you finish all the steps channels will work with video and sound; but clock will be off by 5 hours late. If you try to reset the clock it will all go off again. Enjoy.
