ESPN2 SD should still work fine, does for me anyway.

"My HD Channels" list looking a little anemic right now :( .

This is 1 of the reason I have not switched to HD yet. Too many problems with HD receivers, AKA 722, I do not need the headaches of Dishes HD.

Somehow I knew you'd be saying that, after seeing you say that in the EA thread, lol... My 722Ks work great, just as well as my 625 did, for the most part. I'll tell you what gives me headaches, that is, watching SD! lol...

508 shouldn't have been affected as it can't even get but maybe 1 channel on 129. Unless you're in specific DMAs.

Right, my 508 was fine so I though I had a bad cable or line down from the dish, I swapped cables did check switch and then realized this was bigger than my setup.

I know the 129 sat is out, but shouldnt I be able to get the Standard Def channels if I have good satellites 119 & 110 ? Or at least some channels? Nothing works .

Same reason I never switched over to them new-fangled push button phones.

The VIP722 is reporting complete signal loss, 625 is working fine to bad it's upstairs in the second bedroom. Got through on the 800-333 number, and was connected on hold for about 5 minutes then the call got dumped. is all the way out in the weeds. You would think they would have the ability to put up an out of service page ahead of all of the marketing bandwidth sucking advertising in a situation like this. Let me check the status of the system without the dog and pony and we won't crash your web page.

Two times in one week, i hope it doesn't happen much more the idea of comcrap makes me shivver.

Did a reboot and switch check before coming here. I wonder what happened to 129. I can't even access my guide, though here in Louisiana.

Whoops just checked again and my guide is up.

If there was a satellite for Dish NOT to lose it was Ciel-2. By itself at 129. On the already tight for space Western Arc. Carrying 16 TPs of HD and a ton of HD LiL spots.

But who knows? They got E8 back after a while, maybe Ciel-2 will make a comeback.

Otherwise I expect an emergency application tomorrow to move E7, E6, or maybe even E15 to 129. Probably E7 since it is empty and closest.

Maybe time to get moving on that 8PSK/MPEG-4 transition so they can get some HD LiL going on E10 spotbeams.

Right now I'm wishing I didn't yank my 61.5 wing dish. Then at least I could get Cleveland HD LiL.

Ok, my receiver in the living room is working perfect but the 2nd one in the bedroom gets nothing. Is this related to the ongoing problems or something else?

This is weird. I got an email from Dish at 5:30pm central time, saying I made changes to my online account. I haven't touched it, and of course I can't get to it now because of the high traffic. Coincidence, or is it related?
