This is a switch! Getting 3800 with a good signal but lost 4080 a day or so ago.Can tell that 4080 wants to come in but not good enough for a lock.Anyone else see a decrease in the 4080 sig??

Thanks all! 4080 is back now!These RTV Muxes on AMC3 seem to have a sharp cutoff point between a lock and Miss.The price i pay for having a 6 ft dish.

After several months of not beibng able to lock on to RTV on 4080 it seems to be back with a good signal last few days.

4080 is a very watchable Q=70 for me ( 6 footer) but 3800 doesn't come in at all unless I bump the dish 10 clicks west. Then, of course, I lost 4080. Funny , funny hobby ! :)

Yes! Strange hobby at times! 4080 for the most part has been a strong sig here and 3800 non watchable untill the new sat went up.Now i have both back!for how long who knows.
