I haven't had any problems with breakups for about a week now. I understand that there was a software upgrade recently to the Dish 6000 units (to ver. 754?). Is that why I'm not seeing anymore breakups or did FOX 49 fix their problems?

Sorry if this has been discussed already, I couldn't find the last thread.

The picture is very stable now!

Karl,

Last Sunday I was getting some signal breakup for the first time with my Mits box when I watched Malcolm and X-Files. Haven't watched any Fox since then though.

I think the signal broke up on me one or two times during x-files but nothing major. Hopefully the problems are behind us...

Since at least last Tuesday it has been OK with me. Signal strength has been quite a bit higher after it was fixed. I normally get around low 70's but am now getting low 80's.

You measure your TV in INCHES? How cute! 9.16 Ft Diagonally, Yeah, Baby!

Well, I managed to watch Malcom in the Middle and X-Files last night. There were some initial breakups but then the signal "stabilized" and I didn't see any breakups the rest of the night.

Yipee!!! :D

Have you watched any 49 news? Same as you I watched Malcolm and X-Files and I only saw one little niggle at the end of XF. But lately what I've been seeing is fairly regular problems when I tune in to the 10:00 news. Not huge problems but short freeze ups of video that seem to be particularly bad when they do the weather for some reason...

Ron, I'll have to check it out, I sure like Stephany, she's a FOX (Pun intended)! She makes the news worth watching. ; )

I usually don't watch Fox 49 news, the sports guys kind of irritates me. :) plus I'm usually on my way to bed right after X-Files. I'll have to check it out.

On another note, I noticed some picture "issues" with OPB yesterday while trying to watch that pioneer "reality" show yesterday. There were these weird vertical stripes towards the left side.
