Hello, I see you were chatting with the site's automated response system. I am Mike, the real life technician assigned to help you. Sorry to hear you are having problems....

This is a satellite issue. There may be something blocking the line of site. It's possible/common in the spring/summer with the leaves on the trees.... I would suggest you have the satellite company come out and re-point the dish so you get a clearer signal.

If you need more help or don't understand something use the REPLY option.
