Or before you move it... reboot the unit by holding the power button on the front of the receiver for about 10 seconds or unplug from the power for 30 seconds or so to see if they bring your channels back.
LONSAT I dont think the black screen is on purpose for you. We were going between NBC HD and CTV HD earlier today when the Olympics were live and we didn't have any problems. Sorry don't know why you're seeing a black screen. :-(
Shopper we're new to Shaw how do we tell when the guide is updating? We had some channel breakups yesterday in fact we had to watch part of the FRA/CDN tennis match online from NBC because TSN went away. (BTW we don't get TSN in HD this was some SD channels going away too.)
Although there were thunderstorms in Toronto, they were around 2-4PM and 8PM EDT July 31, so that wouldn't explain the timing in post 7 of this thread, but it would for post 8. We have a rain fade thread in the SD forum here.
Interestingly, BTV was not affected this time, due to the localized nature of these storms.
The last week or so while watching the Blue Jays in HD I note interference streaks intermittantly going through the picture . It only appears to be happening on the HD channels as I do not see it on the SD channels. It not a local weather issue as the ECB# is 8.2 and the weather is good. Has anyone else noticed this?
We lost all the signals during a thunder storm a few days ago and I lost the same HD channels. I tried unplugging the receiver for 30 seconds (which restored the HD signals on NBC + ABC). This time it didn't work.
