For some reason I am getting no signal on these two and the HD PPV for the last two days. All of the other HD's are fine.

all three satellites check out fine on my Sony. But all odd numbered transponders on satellite B are zero and transponder 28 on satellite A is zero. I know the latter is unused. Also noticed transponder 2 on satellite A at a low 52. Oddly ... it's only that low on the Sony HD receiver. My two DTivos signal at 93 on that same transponder and are generally higher across the board.

When I checked last night, HDNet was fine. Don't have HBO.

Incidentally .. my unit is the Sony HD200 and lost signal channels are HDNet and HBO HD via DirecTV.

But did you notice a zero signal strength on transponder 25 of satellite B? I'm told that's where these two channels reside. Seems more like an equipment problem.

Rik - I checked again last night after your previous post. HDNet was perfect. I'm using a Samsung T-160, integrated Winegard 3 LNB dish, with no other multiswitch in the data path.

figured it out. turns out the odd transponders were out on Sat B on the HD200 and both of my DTivos sot this tracks back to a bad LNB on my Terk dish. Terk is sending me out a new one under RMA.

I'm having the same problem with a HD200. I cannot get HBO or HDNet. I get a signal of 25-30 on transponders 24 and 25 but high 80's on every other transponder on 119. This has worked fine for a long time. Anyone else?
