Who else is having DISH network volume problems?
The volume went off about an hour ago, and Iīve run diagnostics and could not get a techie on the line. It looks like the problem is at their end.

I decided to switch channels a moment ago, and got the comedy channel, and some sound, but it was in extremely slow-mo. That was the creepiest thing Iīve ever seen.

It was too weird. Then, the sound went off again. WTF?

I have DirecTV. Tonight for the first time after 8 years use, the volume dropped off. The drop lasted for about 10 minutes.

No slo-mo, though.

Re: Who else is having DISH network volume problems?
Thanks, Colorado and 9214. It helps to get some feedback.

I was checking on GLP, because it looks like a problem from their end, and I was curious as to how far-reaching it might be.

At first, I lost some of my channels, too, and then did a diagnostic, and locked in the second transponder or whatever it was, and got all the channels back. Still no sound, except for that real slow mo, sounding like a monster talking at at high volume. Then, it stopped.

I was wondering if it wasnīt something up in space causing it. I live in Austin, and thought about that hurricane, but thatīs still way south of me, so I donīt know how that would affect things, since I still get the picture fine.

I had DVRīd The Manchurian Candidate, and had been watching it, and tried to run the DVR to see if I could get sound, but got no sound, but it was all pixelated and didnīt come in well. It was fine before.

This is very strange. Thanks for giving me your feedback. This is the first time Iīve experienced something like this, and it was good to compare notes.

BTW, I was on hold for a long time and never got a techie. They said it would be a 15 minute wait. I havenīt had to call DISH network for a long time regarding any problems, and before whenever I called tech support, I got someone on the line right away. Must be a big problem.

Oh, yeah, I forgot to add: The picture will freeze momentarily from time to time, and I will get a staticky sound, and then the picture will return to normal and the static will disappear.

Itīs late where I am, so Iīm off to sleep. Hopefully, it will be rectified in the morning.
