If it happens on all receivers, then it is one of four options, dish not aligned, lnb issue, one of the lines to the multiwitch or the multiswitch.

Best solution is just hook a receiver up direct to the lnb and go from there.

Ok, that would make sense on all fronts. What doesn’t make sense is the time issue. 20 point drop, instantly, at the same time each day. That, to me, says atmospheric anomaly or transmission interference.

It can also mean that some sort of device in the home that draws a lot of power is coming on at that time, causing a voltage drop (or other electrical interference) that can sometimes affect other (especially weaker) electronics. This can be something like a furnace, or dryer, or stove, or saw or microwave, or hairdryer, or whatever. Do you have something that comes on at (roughly) the same time that you encounter these issues?

This (voltage drop or electronic interference) could affect any of the electronic devices (or even cables that have "leaks") in your Satellite system.

Looks like the multiswitch was my problem, although I’m not entirely sure why. There is a thread and photos over in the multiswitch discussion area - please have a look and offer opinions. The differing frequency abilities of each unit is of interest, or maybe the Phillips just failed. Unsure. What still doesn’t make sense is that even if the Sat A inputs were failing, or were of a frequency mis-match, why was the time-of-day an issue (which now, it isn’t)?
