Problems with some channels on 61.5

Is anyone else currently having a problem getting FX HD or Bravo HD?
I'm getting the 002 screen with transponder 25 on Sat 61.5 flagged (channel 136 / 129) Sorry - have them mapped down so don't know the real channel numbers...

Been on hold for 15 minutes, and getting tired of one of the EXTRA LOUD ads.

Update: Just got through - known problem that they're working on...

I just called into Tech about ch. 596 Globo since it's been off for at least the last hour. After telling him I went thru all the basics he found out they had a ticket out about problems on 61.5. He had mentioned it was only that channel but maybe it is more now.

I was only having the issue on transponder 18 it seemed like thru point dish. All my HD locals are fine.

Looks like transponder 18 at 61.5° stopped working. There was some uplink activity a little while ago that cleared the transponder and put all the affected channels on other transponders. E*3 is a 12+ year-old dying bird.

See ya
