No, you need to post your 119 satellite signals, both tuners, as per litzdog's request.

See my original response for instructions to view the 119º readings and post them back here.  

 

Since the problem is only affecting your local channels, it's quite likely that your dish is not properly aimed to adequately receive the 119º satellite signals.  Or perhaps a tree is blocking your dish's view of that satellite.  You'll want to call DirecTV for a service visit.  It's free if you have their Equipment Protection Plan.  Otherwise ~$50, regardless of what needs fixing.
