I just noticed that I'm missing channels 613 (history), 509 (comedy central) and 507 (FX) on both my TVs. Its says to upgrade call 1-800-get voom.

So I called to see what was going on and they said that this is a known issue and that they're working to get those channels back on.

Anyone notice this?

I don't watch the SD channels, but last time I browsed my guide they were there. I do tune them in occassionally just to check out the PQ.

Weird, I get StarzHD on 261 -- it's the right channel but the funny thing is I don't subscribe to the Starz Pack. It's showing Lord of the Rings.

I also have this problem and it involves 6 channels. A new box will not fix the problem. It either the LNB, Switch or Diplexor.

Still not fixed. Plus my box crashed 5 times tonight (gets stuck on one channel but you can watch that one channel -- no STB or remote buttons work).

It can't be the box because it's happenning on both boxes.

Grr.

My FX, Comedy, etc were out tonight...I got the "Call Voom to Subscribe" deal.

Well at least it isn't just me. Is your box crashing a lot too? At least I'm getting free StarzHD but if they don't get this fixed soon I'm going to bail on Voom.

:mad: Same problem here since at least Tuesday am. I've called about it twice and the reps seem clueless at first, but after putting me on hold they come back and tell me they know about it and are working on it; no ETA. :mad:

Well at least that's reassuring that more people have called and that it seems like they are working on it.

I used to watch pardon the interruption on ESPN and the Conan show on Comedy Central every afternoon. Now with Voom I'm surfing instead.

The good news is that I have not yet had a lockup in an hour and a half of viewing tonight. Plus it's raining here and now signal loss!!!

Maybe it will work out after all.
