Yes. When there is no signal going from Scarborough to the Nimiq Birds, there is nothing coming from them back to your Dish.

Channels 199, 200 and 203 are also out. Bell must be experiencing some troubles with their feeds. Maybe somebody cut a fibre line.

I had an outage today from roughly 12 noon to 6.20 pm affecting the 91 sat. Intermittent signal loss. I called them to see if there was an issue they said no. Line is good so switched out LNB same thing. I have a 3100, on a grand fathered clause, looks great on the 36 tube toshiba. Called them back and they said receiver failed move on up. Long story short, everything came back fine about half hour ago. Now I realise most people watch 82 sat because of Hd. Just wondering if anyone else experienced sd channels loss on Nimiq 6 today?

No problems here today and most still watch stuff on 91 as well. Not all stations are HD. Many locals are only SD on 91.
Either your receiver is going bad or you cables have problems like damage or loose/corroded connections.

Yeah, same here with multiple outages. When I could I checked the weather channel and it showed a lot of storms in the Toronto area, so I figured that was the culprit.
