Default Missing Channels

Over the weekend a umber of channels have disappeared and cannot be received. Is any one looking into this?

For Easy view subs it is mainly channel 195 eTVHD

For Premium Subs its is a host of channels as reported in this thread.

http://forum.dstv.com/showthread.php?t=41042

Nothing to do with the new channel being added I suppose?
Ch 196?

Assume a reboot did not solve anything?

For me, no.

But solved the ch 195 issue. UEC decoder was reset to defaults, which then means loss of access to transponder 11848.

Happened again today just after midday.

Hi there. I'll ask tech team. Can you give me an example of channels that you're missing? Ta

Only on EasyView so the channels I am able to get are limited. The crucial one is ch 195 eTV extra HD.

This channel is on 11848 VER. As the UEC decoder does NOT have switching frequency setting, the ONLY way to get this channel is to set the LNB settings to Standard. BUT because when one changes channels, the voltage to the LNB is interrupted, the decoder then loses everything which in turn causes the decoder to reboot and return to default settings.
IF ONLY MC would stop fiddling with the voltage settings feeding the LNB, NONER of us will have these problems!

As soon as the LNB is given a steady in interrupted power feed via a MS (say from the SD PVR power supply ) does this problem stop.
