Unable to receive certain channels

For the past several days I have been unable to receive certain channels, specifically some of the sports channels in the 600 & 700 range. Currently 701 - 706 are carrying the Australian Open Tennis tournament. I am getting the 771 error on channel 701. A few other channels in this range that I do receive have intermittent sound loss and minor pixellation. The weather is clear and there are no obstructions near my dish so, nothing is blocking the signal. I have checked all connections and made sure they are tight. I have rebooted both my main receiver and my Genie box. None of these steps have helped the problem.

771 is usually an alignment problem there are videos on youtube if you want to try it yourself or call/chat with DTV for a tech $99 covered if you have the protection plan.
