    Although based on evidence that I've noticed here in the LA market. I would guess that the even CONUS tp. traffic on T9S has not yet been transferred.

    Because ever since the odd CONUS tp. traffic...

    Unless they wanted to make sure T16 was safely in orbit and operational as backup first. In case something had gone wrong with T16 and therefore Hawaii subs. would have converted to standard Slimline...

    That's what I never quite understood either, since allowing T15's CONUS+PR+HI tps. to broadcast the 10 even numbered CONUS tps. on T9S. Would at least give Hawaii installers and subs. an early start...

    Humph ...

    Well I guess that answers one reason why DIRECTV decided to use one of those 5 new large 13.2m uplink dishes (aka, "LADD5") at their Bakersfield diversity site to use on the DBS Ku band...

    Wow, it is? ...

    Granted I haven't had SD only equipment in a long time, but I always thought the R16 SD DVRs were only MPEG-2 based DSS format capable?

    Ok, thanks for that clarification Tom;

    But any reason why there are no 103CA placeholders listed for tp. 8 (TID 007) in that spreadsheet?

    Hey Gary ...

    Just to be clear, these "REMAP Candidates" all on T7S I notice.

    Are remap candidates to where specifically?

    The newly discovered placeholders on 103CA?

    So it's true that as...

    No problem ...

    Been away from this site for a while tending to other personal matters and just wanted to make sure tp. 22 was still being used for active programming.

    Minor, but any particular reason CONUS tp. 22 was omitted here. Or was it just an error?

    Humph ...

    I guess you could say this is related to T16's eventual arrival at 101W. But I see included in the narrative posted here for an STA to move T9S over from 101.1°W to 101.2°W. It mentions...

    The Spaceway?

    When did Spaceway 1 return to its former 103w from providing telecommunications sevices for Alaska at 139w?
  12. Both still in test mode from the latest TPN...

    Both still in test mode from the latest TPN spreadsheets released today.

    And is ch. 561 *EPIX another new EPIX channel in test?
  13. Yes I agree, that sounds very interesting; ...

    Yes I agree, that sounds very interesting;

    Considering that unlike CONUS beam tps., local spotbeam tp. frequency assignments are usually chosen on a permanent basis and afixed to a spotbeam grid...

    Yeah ...

    They're all manufacturered to the same specs.

    Multiple mfrs. are chosen mainly for redundant supply lines to prevent crippling slowdowns or stoppages in the equipment supply volume in...

    3 = 3 LNB type, 99, 101, and 103°w

    D = Uses "digital" filtering methods as opposed to the older analog filters such as in the wrong LNB they just sent you.

    2 = 2nd generation digital LNB series...

    Oh yes, that I'd certainly agree with that;

    Since according to that retired DIRECTV engineer who posts on satelliteguys, "Inclined Orbit", the Slimline dishes can just barely reach the goal of a...

    Oh wow ...

    Yep, ...sorry to say they indeed blew it ...

    That just another SL-3 four outlet legacy LNBF like you had before, but from another mfr. (WNC in this case).

    You can either return...

    Unless this is just their misstated way of referring to the eventual conversion of the Ku 101w tps. to carry HD programming like the Ka tps.

    Anyway, the reason they're asking for authorization to...

    Although in my case MoCA signal reflections from an unterminated splitter port apparently did cause major issues a few months back when, unbeknownst to me, my neice disconnected her HR24 while...

    Just a couple of notes. ..

    Technically it's really an "LNBF" for "Low Noise Block-downconverter Feedhorn" (The last the doorknob shaped portion of the LNBF).

    Also earlier, unless you choose a...

    Ok, you have a legacy type four outlet SL-3 LNB feeding a SWiM-8 multiswitch.

    The reason the Ku band signals which most all SD channels use might not be affected is because the LNB or multiswitch...
  23. You mean the guide data for the SD locals of...

    You mean the guide data for the SD locals of those markets is still pointing to PID streams on the 119w LiL tps. as always and not simply to the equipment upgrade alert message?
  24. Any reason why the latest numbers table above...

    Any reason why the latest numbers table above does not reflect the four recent local markets on 119w sheduled to have shut down yesterday the 7th?

    Or am I misreading it somehow?

    Just curious ...

    Hey Tom;

    So I take it that while it is certainly more informative that the A3 HD/SD (and UHD) channel NET number and TID combinations actually identify the physical transponder on a specific...
