Not sure if the LNB Drift would cause slow channel changing or not, but it definitely indicates problems are coming. You should have the affected LNBs switched out as soon as possible to avoid losing your signal completely when it gets too far off.

How many years did you get out of your LNB? Just wondering so I know how much time untill I have to worry about it. I have 2 Dish 500's with the Dish Pro LNB's currently.

6 years. i know there was a batch of the dish pro lnb's from a certain manufacturer that were defective and would drift very fast but that's not the case anymore. this new lnb should be from the new manufacturer. :)

what is lnb driftt e8 and what causes this

it means the frequency of the lnb is out of range. in my case e-8 is even -8 under the appropriate frequency range. e for even and o for odd. in my case i have to change my lnb because e-8 is pretty far off and i could start to have signal dropouts.
