Error 771 Signal Loss on Satellite

I got a Genie a couple of months ago, and everything's been great. But three days ago, 3 channels just stopped working, 287-AHC, 389-PBS and 538-EWST. Nothing else has been affected.

Fill in your readings for each satellite and tuner on the new post you create, using the example below as a guide. (The example below is only an example and not a form that will appear in your post unless you "cut" and "paste" it.) A properly aligned dish will show 80-90s on most of the relevant transponders (although some will be low or zero):
