ch 200 News Mix (NMX)

I was excited to have this channel. But we’ve somehow set one of the channels to the Weather Channel, instead of the news channel it was on. I can’t remember how to change it back to what I want. Can some one help? Every search I’ve done points me to really old posts.

We decided to cancel our directv due to poor customer service. They kept telling us a recovery kit was being sent, this went on for a few months. And then all of a sudden we talked to someone and they said to bring the equipment to a UPS store and they would package it and send it back to DirecTV.

Dish SwiM Problem

I recently posted a problem with 103 even transponders, and it was recommended I replace the SWM 8. I purchased a DTV AHKAKUKIT (I live in Hawaii) so I could replace both the lnb and SWM.
