Some of my HD channels will go out and give the message "searching for signal on 1.....". This would not be strange except for the fact that it will do it during the day, all day long, but when I get home from work at night, it plays just fine!
It started Sunday on the Sunday ticket and I could only watch HD on the local channels and it does it on Fox news as well!
I figured maybe a bad LNB, Maybe the dish needs adjusted, perhaps the multi switch is going bad, but why is it just during the daytime???

Hmmmm... maybe call DirecTV? I'm just guessin' but they may have an answer.

it might be a flaky multi switch. does your error message mention anything about your multi switch? i had this problem a while back,changed the switch and works great. it you have access to your multi switch see if you can touch it,my bad one was so hot it would have burned your hand if you held on to it. the tech said when normal you could feel a little heat but not as much as mine was putting out.
