    Anyone having problems with Dish Network right now? I have no picture on either receiver, weather is perfect, I have reset each box to no avail. Support lines are busy and web site is slow.

    Thanks....I didn't think to check Twitter. I didn't see anything that jumped out at me via google when I first checked. I see stuff now.

    Dish Network satellite 129 outage knocks out HD channels nationwide

    If your Dish Network-connected TV is claiming total signal loss, then at least take comfort in the fact that you're not alone. While the company hasn't revealed exactly what the problem is, Facebook and Twitter posts indicate a "technical issue" with satellite location 129. The really bad news comes when we learned that bird is responsible for carrying many HD channels and HD locals (check the links below for a list of all channels on 129). Switching over to SD channels will let you watch (if that can really be called watching TV) most content in the short term -- DBSTalk posters advise hitting menu and selecting 1 on your remote to pull up the guide if you're having trouble. If you currently hide standard-def channels, press menu, then 8, then 1 and uncheck the "HD only" box to see the working channels for now. We'll keep checking for any updates on the situation, but for now you're on your own in a 480-line wilderness, so good luck.

    I was wondering what was up last night. I'm fine with stuff like this as long as I know it's not just me and they're aware and working on it.

    Thank GOD this didn't happen on a day/night that involved football...
