Hi guys,


I have a strange problem... and wondering if you guys

might know what might be my real cause of the problem.


The issue at hand is that my DST3000 has lost sat 101

reception to its transponders the last two nights. The

strange thing is that it came back exactly at 11:30pm PST.


Sat 119 was able to get 199 and 509 [that is until I try

to re-download the APG].


So any idea what could be causing this to happen?


Thanks in advance.

Found my own answer last night.


It was a small florescent bulb I put in my upstairs room

last weekend. The florescent bulb generated enough

E&M field to interfere with the 101 Sat. Man, you have

to wonder how little E&M field could potentially screw up a Sat reception... and I mean 0% signal on all 101 transponders.


Oh well, I guess I have to contribute to the CA power consumption problem and start using conventional light bulbs again.
