Can someone please confirm that both these stations are still running up and running on 15W. The gales on Tuesday misaligned my dish, I aligned it yesterday and since then I have not been able to pick up these channels although I pickup everything else on 15W.


Cheers

Signal from both here, but only DAD5 is carrying programmes at the moment. MSNBC is also there with ID 'NET53' on 11523H 1500.

Thanks Lancelot. I nudged my dish motor 4 times to the east and I picked up DAD 2 's testcard. I did not align the dish properly and it seems to be out by 1 degree or thereabouts. Looks like I have some realigning to do

On wednesday , I realigned my dish and was picking up both channels but when I tuned in at 2 am GMT(US prime time) there was no signal...Very Strange. Looks like the channels/feeds are gone....

If the dish moves slightly after a storm, it is easier to edit the satellite position by a fraction of a degree (until the signal is strong) rather than realign the dish.

This is disappointing if true.

I had been receiving these feeds for months without any problems.
I've tried adjusting the sat settings on the receiver but to no avail.

Can anyone else confirm that these feeds are definitely gone before I get the ladder out?

Cheers.

I've been receiving DAD-5 for a long time too, and it's disappeared for me as well. Nudging the dish doesn't help. I don't think it's your dish :(

Right now DAD-5 is showing MSNBC like normal. But has that been missing too or was/is it just NBC?

They often disappear for a few days at a time - and then there are anguished cries and much gnashing of teeth from the half dozen people on the forum that actually watch the feeds. It always come back after a few days or weeks.

Same here. I don't seem to pick up any signals during the day and also at night. I get a good signal in the only in the mornings and Jay Leno is usually on.
