DSR 505 HD Problem

For the last few days, some of the HD channels (eg. Sportsnet, TSN2, Space etc) come in while some don't (TSN, NBCE, NG etc) don't. How come some come in and some don't? Could a tree be blocking some of the signals? Any advice?? The non-HD channels seem to be fine.

If you could go to 299 and 252 respectively and get the signal strength for them, we may be able to narrow it down a little.

At the moment, there seems to be a few blackout issues with specific channels as well, but that seems to be an issue with the Globals more than anything.

In any case, let's start with getting signal strength on 299 and 252 - throw in 700 as well.

Tuner 1 says 65 for 299. Tuner 2 says 0. Tuner 1 says 64 for 252. Tuner 2 says 0.

So, you've got pretty low signal strength. I would say that you definitely need a fine tune on your dish, and possibly an LNB swap. I would just contact Shaw and get it all sorted.
