I am having a problem with my ESPN channel 140. During the Alabama/Clemson football game on 1/9, I continually received complete signal loss, partial signal loss messages. I also received the loss of HD switching to SD message. The signal continually became distorted and eventually went back to HD and the Complete/Partial signal loss messages started up again. I checked the other Channels and it was only happening on ESPN 140. This morning 1/10, it is still happening. Is this an ESPN problem, a Dish Network or something else?
This could be an issue with either ESPN or DISH depending on whether there is poor signal strength. You can perform a check switch test to verify your signal strength. May I ask what model receiver you have?
Let's check the signal strength first before performing a check switch test. In the room with the DISH receiver, click on the Menu button then select System Setup > Installation > System Info. Allow the Status to appear Good or 100% complete then advise us what color you have listed for Signal in box "g."
Click back one screen and select Point Dish > Check Switch > Test. Allow test to complete on its own then once done, you may cancel entirely out of the Menu. The receiver will have reset itself so when it is done retrieving signal and downloading program guide, check ESPN and see it is having the same issue.
Reset is complete. I went to ESPN channel 140 and within 30 seconds I received a complete signal loss followed by a partial signal loss. Signal then returned to normal and within a few seconds it happened again.
