in a "this doesn't look good" update, most of HD versions of the channels are gone from the "All Channels" listings on the guide, so looks like we are gonna have a few emergency uplinks tonight in the Uplink center, looks like the 129 Satellite may have have crapped out. i wonder if we will see an mass amount of HD versions being uplinked to 119 & 110 until they can fix the 129 issue.

Folks be sure you do not run any switch test during this outage.. It will only make it worse.. Channels will dissapear. And when the problem is fixed you will still be out.. Just sit it out and wait..

The big question is if that is even possible. Aren't the sats at 110 and 119 full already?

Also, I don't understand why, but recently DISH made the guide hide SD channels when HD is available on HDTVs. So in situations like this people can't even find the SD alternative.

Go to Preferences (8), then Guide Format (1), change channel preference to HD & SD - wa-la- your all All Channels will show both HD and SD

I'm sure they're just running Windows updates on 129 and rebooting it right?


...and the speculation begins! Let our imaginations run wild!

Space junk, anyone? I blame the Chinese.

Yeah, I actually was telling someone else how to do that in this thread already, just saying I think it was a dumb move. However, never hurts to repost it, as I'm sure my post has been buried in this thread.
