Check your signal strength [Menu -> 6-4-3-1] on CTVHD or something that works. Will most likely be 90+ (HD channels show higher than non-HD channels). Then check it on RDSHD. If it's much lower (i.e. below 70) then it's your dish.

I'm suspecting this is the cause because you're not getting the non-subscribed message when you go to the channel.
I'm losing more and more HD channels and even regular RDS wasn't working when I got home to watch the last half of the game. I checked this morning and same problem. I'll have to climb on the roof and clear some snow. We've had tons lately and that must be the problem. And yes, the signal strength is lower than it should be. Thanks for your reply.
