docj Posted September 11, 2019 Report Share Posted September 11, 2019 (edited) Does anyone know if the DirecTV 110 satellite has gone dark or something? I have an old SK3005 Winegard Trav'ler automatic rooftop dish which has been converted to SWM, etc. I haven't used it for a couple of weeks because of tree cover but today I have a clear sky and the system couldn't find 110. It uses the "line" between 101, 110 and 119 to determine the skew angle. It did lock onto 101 and 119 and was able to obtain service, but not having 110 slows it down. This wasn't the situation when I last used the dish ~3 weeks ago. Maybe the long awaited channel realignment is happening? FWIW I've been using YouTube TV quite effectively while not being able to get DirecTV because of those annoying trees! When we get to our TX winter base in a couple of weeks I'll evaluate if it's worth even keeping DirecTV. It will largely depend on what kind of price DirecTV is willing to give me once my current $40/mo discount runs out in another couple of months.
