Call for the tweak, ask for the protection plan (8.99), and the call should cost no more than $10, plus the cost of a few months of protection plan or a cancellation fee of ($35?)I'm about a year into my h3 upgrade (aka contract)
Dish is about 3+ yrs old.
I'm getting lots of digital breakup on different channels.
I don't pay for the insurance option whatever it's called.
If I call for a tweak what's it going to cost?

Thanks; did some online research; looks like it's $8.99/mo $30 if removed <6 months
$95 fee w/o protect.
Just curious if being a long term (10+yrs) customer has any weight; or it is what it is.
Thanks, and before I call/chat I may try to self adjust.
I found the signal strength in settings; but not sure what best combos to use.
I'm right in the center of the US, looks like I'm using 110, 119 & 129, so what tuner/transponder should I use?
just picking random tuner/transponders I see these strengths"
129 = 62
119 = 43
110 = 62
Depending on which Transponder, but if's central US,. he should be in the 70's for 110 and 119Not a big deal which one. 43 is low, 62 not bad. (For Western Arc which is what you have) You could pick one of the channels you see the problem on and see what that strength is. I would not be surprised if that 119 you see is a problem.
(Edit - I don't have a Hopper if you do I don't know if that scale reads the same as my VIP receivers)
Also be sure there is no obstruction or partial obstruction to the sky, check all connections and the condition of coax. It isn't usual to need it realigned, but certainly not unheard of. I live by the Ocean when I am in Florida, with higher than normal winds often, tropical storms with high winds etc... and have yet to ever need a realignment. But yours could have been right at the edge of being aligned and moved just a little, etc...
