My Wally has about 50-52% signal strength of 61.5 and 72 Sats, my locals are pixelated very badly. Is that a good SS number?

Yes, those are good numbers. I do not know why your locals are pixelated. :confused: Perhaps you were checking the wrong transponders.

My Phone co-op is about to put fiber to my house and instead of 20 MBS DSL I will have 200 MBS Fiber, when I get that I plan on cutting the cord to Sat, I get tired of signal loss in the rain and paying for what I do not want to watch, most of what i watch is on Discovery plus, an Outside antenna for locals, I got a Fire TV built in my speaker bar, so unless Dish come up with a compelling reason to stay I will be Adios.

Had some problems with OTA over the last week due to sun outages in Columbus Ohio..
Read this on another forum..
Yes, as the sun gently nudges summer out of the way until next year, it will cause brief, unavoidable TV service outages from October 5th through October 10th between 1PM and 5PM each day, depending on the channel. These sun outages are expected to last approximately eight minutes per channel. They also happen in February/March in the Northern Hemisphere.

Ok then, your going to want to check 61.5 transponder 18. Once you set it to that, the transponder field should change to spotbeam and you should be able to tell if its a signal strength problem or not.

Anything above 48 signal strength is what Dish considers to be good signal strength. Even lower than that typically won't cause many issues until it reaches below 35, but all situations are different.
