Since 7/25 Channel 206 (Fox News) only comes in sd mode. All other channels are broadcasting in HD. I gave tried everything to get the HD back on 206, but no success. Any help is appreciated.

Problem Solved!!   It turns out that the pole that holds the dish came loose and satellite 129 was not being received correctly. Reset and recemented the pole and it seems to resolve the problem.

If you go into your system info screen, which satellites are you tuned into? What model receiver?

I could not locate any system info screen. The info only regards the channel that is on. The reciever is a Wally.

Run a check switch test. Same area I sent you before, but instead of Status, go To dish, and then check switch and run the test.

So here is what is happening. If I am on channel 205 (Fox News) and i "channel up" to 206, it only comes in SD. If I am on 205 and manually enter 206, then it comes on in HD. (Yes, my favorite list is correct) HELP !!!
