I am looking at my EPG for this evening, and a bunch of channels are going "Off Air" around 1am central time (11/14).

I see: 106, 107, 108, 109, 110, 112, 114, 124, 127, 128, 136, 139, 140, 143, 150, 154, 160, 161, 162, 168, 169, 174, 175, 176, 181, 182, 183, 185, 195, 197, 205, 208, 209, 241, 250, 342, and 401 are some of them going off air.

Is there anything major going on tonight in terms of upgrades or something? Just strange that so many channels are going "off air" overnight.

I have guide data and program info for those channels all night long.

Thanks. Just getting up and it still says "Off Air" on a couple of them but a majority have the programming guide now. I have a VIP211k. Looking at the uplink page, it appears that there was a major uplink last night where a bunch of the channels I listed changed transponders. I am guessing that is all it was.

Out of curiosity I switched to a couple of channels that the guide indicated they were off air, but they had programming going on. So, in many cases, it seems only the guide says they're off air.
