    To be clear, D15 TPNs 2-7 are not DSS modulation. These transponders are A3 QPSK FEC 2/3 modulation, using DTVs modified DVBS2. The streams on the transponders are apparently Mpeg2 compression...

    The CLEARMYBOX1 is the least disruptive. It just clears the APG. See this post:Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ).

    That data has to come from the Slow APG data, and may take some time to get into your guide.

    They continue to be duplicated on 99cr. If they are going anywhere else, it will have to be on transponder space vacated on 101, in the future.

    That is what I call "Guide Memory". Today's APG does not have any music channels on 99 reverse band, except for five audio channels in the 2000 range. With my SL3RB, I see no duplicates, and no...

    Do you see duplicate entries in the guide for some of the Music channels? For instance channel 807?

    As of this morning when we captured the APG data, many channels are listed on both D7S@119 and D15@103ca. I suspect that people with SL5 LNBs will see them both listed. Confirmation?

    Some, but not all of the music channels, so far. Still assessing this change which is LARGE. The SW2@99 spot beam for PR no longer has any channels in the guide. Neither does D14@99CR (reverse...

    I was able to create a table in a post at satelliteguys, so Xenforo is not a problem in that regard. I think the change in the hosting site would be the biggest factor in the decision. I am going...

    That would be a problem, unless they duplicated the APG data on 119 also. They would only need the APG data for the stuff on 119, if they are using old non-SWM receivers. SWM receivers would need...

    They are obviously moving slowly, but it seems clear that they are planning on clearing most of the content now on 119 off. An aircraft antenna has to be electronically steerable, and could easily...

    If they are going to use 119 for something, D8 (T8) which only has RHCP transponders ( odd TPN numbers), would be able to replace all of the spot beam TPNs being shutdown on D7S. D7S would have to...

    That sounds reasonable. It is interesting that you confirm that the Las Vegas spot beam has been turned off. The beam contour for Beam B07, which would be your reading on TPN 29, shows a level 14...
