  1. Where I am in the Northeast, I see no difference...

    Where I am in the Northeast, I see no difference in the signal levels on all of the National CONUS transponders. So your signal levels would be an be a better indicator. Doctor J noticed on July...
  2. As far as I know , D9S has always had enough...

    As far as I know , D9S has always had enough transponders and beams to duplicate D4S. We never could tell which was providing service, but there were clues that spot beams were coming from D4S. So...

    Their filing for moving D9S to 101.2 (SAT-STA-20190703-00055) said that they were doing that to transfer the D4S load to D9S, as D4S was at end of life.

    All of my local SD channels are in Mpeg4, and the quality is very good. In particular, when I am in North Carolina, the PBS channels on the UNC subchannels, which are 16:9, originally in HD , but...

    From my 8/8/19 capture, the ACCN placeholder (*TEST) is on channel 612.

    As of this morning, the CBS stations involved in the dispute are back to having individual feeds, rather than the slate that was up.
    Is there any confirmation that they are back live?

    [EDIT]...

    A quick data capture this morning shows all the CBS stations involved in the dispute, back on DirecTV as separate feeds, not slates.

    So far, the records Gary showed as "remap" have *test placeholders on TID 0 to 7 of Net 15, as shown in Analysis spreadsheet that Gary posted above. Those TIDs have no entries in the NIT, so could...

    Things happen when you are multitasking and pressed for time.
  10. We have, for a long time, designated transponders...

    We have, for a long time, designated transponders at 101 as coming from either D4S or D9S for spot beams, with D9S for the national beams on TPN 2,6,8,10, 14, 16, 24, 30 and 32. I can't remember...

    Orbital mechanics is not my thing, but N2YO shows T16's ground track doing an S-curve north of Papua New Guinea at 21947 miles. It is obviously not anywhere near a geosynchronous orbit, yet.

    They actually have added TIDs 0 through 6, or a total of 7 TIDs to the Net 15 APG records. But they have not defined the information to tune to them, like frequency, polarity, modulation, FEC, etc. ...

    Ah! I missed that. I have been very busy this past 6 weeks. I did check a list of applications that had been granted before I commented. While that equest has not yet been granted, I expect it...

    Actually the FCC application, and the Authorization to Launch says T16 is going to 103, not 101.

    I expect AT&T to file for permanent assignment of D15 (T15 in AT&T's description) to 101, after T16...

    It's also supposed to be on FS1 HD, and they just finished a NASCAR race and are in a pregame for MLB. Channel 105 is now showing a World Cup slate, but no live activity.

    I would urge everyone to not put a lot of faith in those new hex model numbers. I have been working with the owner of the RedH site, along with Doctor J, to improve the reliability of the RedH site....

    Contractual complexities and squatters rights are outside of my skill set.

    The main reasons: Reduce installer inventory, simplify installations, reduce LOS issues. They can now eliminate all LNBs except the SL3s. The SWM version is sufficient for the vast majority of...

    On another note, I forgot to report this earlier. My very Italian neighbor in NC had a new DirecTV installation in April, mostly to be able to receive Italian news, sports, etc. AT&T installed...

    One of the problems with AT&T's desire to rename all of their satellites acquired in the merger with DirecTV, is that the list of geosynchronous satellites at the FCC still refer to them with the...

    On the 101 spotbeams, each beam pattern has two or three transponders. They can remap all they want among the transponders on a single beam. They all cover exactly the same area. Last Thursday,...

    I agree with keeping the splitter as the system ground, if there is not going to be a separate grounding block. I lost sight of that very important detail. I run my coax connections through a...

    I am looking at my spare reverse band LNB, which is from the very first batch of Reverse Band LNBs to the market. It is an 3D2RBLNBR0-01. The same model is in service at both of my homes, and have...

    I would add that the 29v power inserter has been reported to work fine with a SWM LNB, instead of buying a new 21 volt one. Given the long cable distances you mentioned, it might actually be...
