Reception Issues Jan 1st

Anyone else having reception issues this morning? I need to go out and check my dish but I am seeing what look like switch issues. I have never seen snow accumulation problems before but the snow today looks quite wet.

A number of the Canadian stations were off plus the HD channels (Evu) for a short period of time. Not sure what the problem was.

my wife mentioned the same thing to me...by the time i got out of bed, got some clothes on and went downstairs to check it out, it was on...i will go out in a bit and make sure the dish is clear...it looks like we got some wet sticky snow last night.

Panasonic TP42PX60, Yamaha DTS receiver, Mission 73 series speakers, 100% sweetness!

No issue here today, but we did yesterday afternoon...when I hooked back my 3100 all the receivers went down!


I answer based on what I learned when I was working at BEV...it's possible that somethings have changed since then

I had problems with 845 "the Score HD" and the football game. They eventually changed the feed from HD to SD.

I had no signal this morning....
Thankfully, I have the dish installed within brooms reach from a bedroom window, and after a quick Russ Howard impression, I am back in business

I tried the Russ Howard thing, but yelling "Hurry!" didn't work, damn. I had to make like Russ' poor overworked sweepers and actually clear the snow, then it came back on.

Satelitte is now down on the South Shore of Montreal... Luck me, I had a bitch landlord who yelled at the technician that nothing should be on the roof...he installed it on the balcony. I just opened the patio door sholved the snow...and it's back!

I have a good wife, she had the snow brushed off the 82 dish before i got out of bed!! But she couldn't reach the other one. I threw a snowball at it and the snow fell off.
