any one else have this? especially the HD channels. Trying to watch some recaps from the British open on Golf HD, but the image is having problems

Storm just went by through here, but the rain has let up now... maybe they are having weather troubles now on the upload side of the signal......

update

checked the signal this morning, and strength is back up to 92 (was mid 70's lastnight)

Must have been weather/ heavy rain related.

Where do they do the uplink for Shaw Direct?

The uplink for most of the specialty hd channels, and the Toronto/Detroit stations is in Mississauga, right off the QEW.

I suspect the storm that rolled through my neighborhood form 5 to 7 ran through Mississauga Toronto then. I did get the Toronto SD channels fine.

Mr Weather and classicsat,

When you say SD signal and Toronto SD channels are you referring to Shaw Direct, or standard def?

My standard def channels came through fine, about 1/2 of my Hi Def channels were very poor, the other 1/2 was ok...

I mean Standard Def. I was getting lost signal around 10pm on 292, so flipped to 302 where it was solid, although standard def.
