I have an elliptical dish, two lnb's and two receivers, a Hughes E86 and an RCA DTC-100. For the past 10 days I have been experiencing 1-2 second loss of signal. It occurs randomly on both receivers. We have been watching programs off the 101 satellite. Has anyone else been having this problem or could I have an equipment problem, such as an lnb going bad. I plan to install the Sat. C kit soon, so if need be I'll replace the A & B lnb's. Thanks.

I have had a similar problem intermittently since I got my first DTC-100 year and a half ago. Mine happened only when watching non-HD programming after I had watched something on HD. I now have two DTC-100s and a non-HD Hughes DirecTV plus receiver. I have found that if I leave the Hughes receiver turned on, the intermittent signal loss goes away. I assume it's a bad multiswitch, but so far I haven't replaced it since leaving the other receiver turned on seems to prevent the problem.
