No problems here.

Sound like maybe a bad cable/water in your cable, receiver problem or you dish may have moved a little. Go into the setup menu and check you signal strength.

on the "point dish signal"' screen it said i was on West 119, the signal bar was red and said "wrong sat"
i changed it to West 110 and the signal bar was green and 'locked' with a signal strength of 118

A couple times a year the gremlins take over one of my DISH boxes.  The fix has always been to unplug it for 1/2 hour.  Not turn it off, but unplug it.  I think it causes it to re-download some settings or software.
Works for me...  Other (older) box never needs this treatment.

The Dish guy told me when you unplug the box unplug it from the back of the unit not the wall. He said they didnt know why but it resets the box. My picture will go black some times and this always cures it.

Now if I could just figure a way to record off the antenna and watch the dish at the same time.

I have been having problems on some of my channels. HBO and Showtime seem to be the worst.

Had it on for about an hour last night and was getting the "scrambled egg" effects. Will try the unplug and see if that corrects the problem.

I had some trouble awhile ago- had to completley unplug fromm wall and let sit.  I also had to run the "check switch" thing a few times in the setup.  Mine also said wrong sat. but now seems to work agian.
