Will the removal affect the Wally that I try to use in the MH? I have seen no difference in the home set up reception.

You could be on the edge of the spot beam. You can't get your home locals all over the Country. You would need to change which locals you receive as you travel around. 60 miles "could" move you into a different market but it usually takes more distance than that.

Maybe not. Where do your locals come from and where are you now?

It may be by where your locals are. My locals are from Denver and I'm getting them in HD right now.

If you see me camped someplace stop and say hi, I've always got an extra ice cold beer.

129 was removed from Dish service due to the lease expiring as the satellite is reaching end of service life. All channels on 129 were moved to 110 or 119.


That would've been nice to know before I cussed out my Dish equipment yesterday trying to setup. I had all 3 sats in clear view and kept getting the "Not all sats found" message.


I did the same thing yesterday, Dutch. I think I moved my dish about 8 times trying to get a 129 signal thru some trees. I think I had to drink an extra beer or two because of the frustration caused by it.
I guess it will be a good thing for the future because 129 always had the weak signal. But shame on Dish for not notifying their customers.
