Shaw Direct TV

Post by MexicoPete on Sun Oct 02, 2016 7:49 pm

Half of my channels are down. These are from the satellite called Anik F2 and have most of the HD programs. I'm hoping it is only me. It went out this evening. I unplugged and then replugged the receiver that didn't help and I checked the quad LNB on the roof , you know checked the RG 6 cables etc.

Please post whether your system is working well or not and only picking up half of the satellite channels. Either answer will help me decide what to try next

That is bad news. A long time ago we had a satellite called Anik F1, It failed as well maybe ten years ago and it had to be replace with what is now called AniK F1R and we needed a slightly larger dish

Let us hope this a temporary outage. And that somehow they can get it up and running

Sure we all had 5 to 15 minute outages around 2 PM in the spring and the fall. And that is normal. This outage scares me.

My HD was down earlier for a couple of hours. Everything seems to be working now.

I can't even sign in to my account to do a channel restore. I suspect they are having issues.
