Looks like I'll have to reposition the 2x4 that I'm using to prop up the dish in that direction.

What dish size are you using? I noticed that the signal strength went down at least 25% recently. Before on my 2.4m dish, I was getting close to 100q but now I only get approximately 70%. It sucks for people using smaller dishes for c-band as they don't have much signal headroom in the first place. One of my customers who has a 1.2 meter c-band bud has a hard time to get even 30% on this mux now. :( Hopefully this is only a temporary thing!

My PR channels went bad and I had to rescan. I found that the V H had switched. I have had to do this a couple of times in the last year. After rescanning they come in clear again but not the original, only the new scan.

I'm using a beat-up 7.5' (about 2.4m) dish. I jostled the set-up with the 2X4 in it came back in.

I'm getting ready to install a positioner & a 24" actuator on it so I don't have to run outside and change the "sticks" to move it.

Thank you for the post. I noticed this too and thought it was something on my end.

I had this happen to me last night. I was watching and then all of a sudden the signal was gone. I moved the BUD 20 points farther west and things picked up to almost where they were. Other sats were fine.

Can't say I've ever had this happen to me before.

Had to upgrade a customer's C-Band LNBF from a 25K to a 13K one on a 1.2M dish to get these channels again so you guys may want to consider doing the same. They obviously reduced their power output levels.

Maybe their uplink dish is no longer peaked. The ABC HD signal barely locks here using my 1.2m with a 12K LNBF.

Just noticed today the Caribbean mux is back to normal power and can be picked up again on a 1.2m dish. ABC SD is in black.

I was having trouble with the audio on ABC a couple of days ago, but the next day it was back to normal, haven't really watched anything on there today.
