pixalating picture

I had an issue on sat night..... worked fine all day til about 8pm I received the error message "searching for satelite 771" but had a picture on tv with DVR (all other receivers appear to be working fine)
I tried resetting with the red reset button still had picture going in and out with error message "771" appearing on occasion including an error message stating to order for pay per view on a non pay per view channel. I tried unplugging to reset twice the picture finally got better but still had pixalated picture now and again. Sunday the picture was fine til around 8 pm again and had a slight pixalation issue again but not as severe as saturday night. the cables appear to be connected correctly and screwed in tight.

I have a channel (ESPN channel 206) that is pixelating. what can be the cause?

I have a channel (ESPN) that is pixel-ating.  what can be the cause? it started about 2 months ago, and doesn't do it all the time.  Does not appear to be weather related.  We don't have the problem on other channels at the same time.  What types of things can I do to troubleshoot this here before placing a service call?

 

Thanks

 you can try to check the resolution settings, it might solve the issue.

Some channels glitchy pixelated

Randomly today some of my channels started working very poorly and some are completely fine.  I ran satellite transponders test sat 101 and both inputs both came out the same.  1-8 95 98 96 0 95 95 96 95.  9-16 95 96 96 89 96 94 96 95    17-24. 96 0 96 95 96 95 96 96.   25-32 97 0 97 0 96 96 97 96.   Is my dish out of alignment?  Or is their a simpler fix?

What is up with ESPN and ESPN 2?

I'm currently on hold with tech support (for a half hour now) and I have been unable to speak to a human representative. Please note both of the ESPN channels are scrambled in reception.

Others have posted that DirecTV acknowledged it's a satellite issue that they're working to fix ASAP.

Re: Problem with ESPN channels

I came here to see if others are having this issue.

 

It's seems like it is every other channel.

 

Unfortunately the K-State vs KU game starts soon and can't see on FS1.

Re: Problem with ESPN channels

I am having trouble with about 18 channels in the 200 range of channels.  I reset the receiver but it is still having the issue.
