Yesterday I got a total dropout of MSNBC on DirecTV. No picture, blippy, warbling sound. Complete dropout, with "searching for satellite" banner on bottom of the screen. Other channels were OK. Problem was only with MSNBC. I have another receiver (Non-HDTV, Hughes) that did not have a problem. It runs 3 other sets in the house, and MSNBC was fine. Checked the setup, and it was on transponder 32, with 0 signal strength. Yes, I tried the hard reset, etc. No change. This morning, MSNBC is back, but after about 2 hours, is starting to break up very badly. Once again, *only* MSNBC! I don't know if other channels are also bad - I didn't check all of them. I did talk to the DirecTV folk, and they tried to sell me a $90 service agreement, since I owned the box, not them. I declined. Does this sound like a failing receiver? Where do I send this for repair? Turnaround times? (it's out of warranty, BTW) Thanks for your help, folks!
