Any other Dish Network subscribers having TV trouble tonight?
First time we have had trouble. Keep losing signal. Don't know if it is our weather or the system. We are having a bit of fog.

Anybody eles losing the signal off and on this evening?

1. Don't have Dish, but this is the reason I'm reluctant to give up
cable.

Can't see bad weather being a factor in TV transmission -- when it's bad weather, that's the time I allow myself to wallow in it.

2. yep
that was my problem with it. I had DirecTV and loved it. Except in heavy rain - it just wouldn't work right. Either it would go out entirely, or anything was just terribly pixelated.

And yes, when it's storming out is when you wanna curl up in front of the TV.

7. Had nothing but trouble with Direct TV. It was their equip.. it sucked
This is the first time we have had trouble with Dish in over 3 years.
Cable where we are is pretty unrealiable. Miles and miles of phone lines and cable through a very hostile envrionment = trouble more than the dish could ever manage.

8. Nope. *Do* in Bad Weather, Usually Doesn't Last Long

& in the past year, the local channels were added, some of which were not gettable before, no matter what the antenna.
