I just had 129 come back for about 30 seconds - was watching the busch race on ESPN 2. Had noticied breakup and getting a real low signal - I must have gotten new software on my 622 since the meters look different

110 - 75 - Transponder 1
129 - 30 - transponder 4
119 - 0

i lost 129, then 119
now i have: 110 & 119

i've removed the cable and rebooted the receiver and ran another check switch, only 129 is gone

Re-run check switch and you should get 129 back.

Both 110 and 119 signal levels are significantly below normal; 60-70 vs about 105 in my part of the woods.

No need to run switch test or do anything, This was a nationwide outage and seems to have come back.. You system should be back to normal without doing anything,

Was out in B'ham AL, knew there wasn't a cloud in the sky. Brother said my taping of Footy last night had the signal cut out. May be related, but now back on. To the Busch watchers, go Matt Kenseth, go free Arby's Curly Fries!

Hence my comment not to run switch test or anything.. If the sats are out your switch test will just make things worse for you.. Wait till all is back up again before getting frisky with the test.. In most cases things will just come back up normal. However if you have already run the test, you will have to do it again when the sats come back or you will be missing lots of channels on your guide

Everything seems to be back up here. If you ran a check switch during the outage - You may have to run it again to get all the sats back.

Can't wait to hear the explanation on this one.. Oh yea, this is Dish.. They won't even admit they had a problem. They will blame it on the installer.
