@noah12 : Southern Ontario and Toronto had heavy rain last night. It's possible the uplink for the SD channels you checked were being disrupted by the heavy downpour.

during severe rain, some channels (TSN's usually) lose reception and go to black. That's nothing new, but just recently, when the rain subsides, only the audio returns again, while video just stays in black. This never used to be the case. When weather lifted video digitally reappeared. The only way to get video back now after a storm is to change channels. Needless to say, this sucks for recordings in progress. Even if the downfall lasts a minute, video is toast for the rest the recording.
Anyone else have this problem lately? This is on both my DSR630 and DSR605's. I'm thinking a recent update messed something up.

I have four 630s running and have not had this problem arise.

do you mean you never lose the signal, or if you do, you regain picture again after the weather lifts, and if a recording is in progress?

The latter, after the loss from rain my picture comes back, and shortly after that the any recordings will continue.

Ok, thanks. There must be either something wrong with my feed (too weak to bring back the picture), or all my machines have a software glitch.

hey LONsat - do you have any idea what cities Shaw Direct uplinks from? I think Mississauga is one - any others? Trying to trace some "lost-satellite" reception problems which loosely follow some rain patterns I'm witnessing. Thanks

Mississauga and Calgary are the two uplink sites. I don't *think* I have anything readily available about which channels are coming from which, but let me poke around...

Apparently I lied! There's currently an uplink in Vancouver as well, but it will no longer active post-MPEG-4 conversions. G1 is solely out of Calgary, F1R and F2 will be mostly out of Mississauga. I don't have specifics as I guess there's conversations right now about movements, so anything as of today could be changing soon.
