Why are some HD channels in the 70's and again on higher #'s?
Just got Direct TV and I noticed that some of the HD channels are on channels 70 through 79. Then the same channels are on again between the 200's to 500's.
Why are there 2 of these channels? Is it because one set is MPEG-2 and the other is MPEG-4? If so, which is which?
Obviously it would use less space to record on the MPEG-4 one's if that's the way they are.........correct?

Yes, the 70's are the MPEG-2 and the upper channels (206, 501) are MPEG-4.

One more question........... What is the Channel T101 that comes on 101 in HD and 239 in SD? I don't see that anywhere on DTV's channel lineup listings.
