    I lost my reception for sat. #103. Everything is still OK for #99, #101, #103C, #110, and #119. Any suggestions? Most of my HD is gone now but I still get a few channels. Help!

    You must have an HR20 or HR21. I suggest posting at www.dbstalk.com, though if "everything is ok" on the others you list it seems very odd that you'd have lost much of anything. Since you say 103c is ok, that leaves 103s which is spot beams, not national channels.

    Are you getting any messages? Did you reboot?

    Just an FYI, although the 771 message has been reported often, a bad BBC can cause intermittent problems like you are having.If it happens again, you can try switching the BBCs to see if the problem moves to the other tuner. Or you can just call DirecTV and they will send a new set for free. Even if one isn't bad now, it's nice to have a spare on hand as they do seem to fail a lot. I had one go bad already.
