Dish 129 on traveler red X

Recommended Posts

Recently on the road and after having locals spot beamed to our location and picking a Zip that is close enough that has HD locals on Western Arc. 

We get a Red X and Conn on diagnostic Dish page where 129 should be. 110 and 119 are good all Green. 

Traveler control box shows all three good. No obstructions at all clear sky. 

We north west of Ft Wayne. 

Had same issue in Ky day before. 

Also some of the channels are Sd like Fox sports and nbcsn  usually HD  

we do seem to get all our channels though

We had a similar problem a little over a year ago with a 722ViP receiver; it was the receiver itself.  Occasionally hard rebooting would get it running OK for a while, but it would fail to receive 129 again.  We had to replace the receiver.

If it's a H3 with a Travler, then you're probably using a DPH42 switch also, right?

Pull the plug on your H3 and DHP42 BEFORE starting the Travler.

Yes DPH 42.  I have not done that.  I will try that today! Thanks.

Thanks Zulu for the tip! It worked. Now have 129 connected and green. Channels that were SD now are HD like normal. 

Appreciate it!
