New to the forum and have appreciated the massive amount of info located at this site! I have a quick question. I have a house in Memphis, TN and a house in Little Rock, AR (roughly 2.5 hours away). Both houses have DISH sats on them and all of the cabling is good as well as the alignment. If I take my VIP-722 that is assinged to my Memphis address and plug it in at my Little Rock address, my locals are black for like 25 seconds, then I get a blue screen that says "We are aware that the channel you are trying to acces is not available and we are working to resolve the problem. Please check back later." However, all other non-local channels work fine. Any idea why this will not work for me?

Memphis locals are on a spot beam that does not extend to the Little Rock area.

Well, that makes perfect sense. Thanks for the reply. How does one find out what, where, and the coverage area of a "spotbeam"?
