    Also curious; Are the local channels DIRECTV assigns you from the Anchorage (tp. 5 on 99(s) ) or Juneau (tps. 21 and 22 on 99(s) ) market? Since I notice you have very strong signals at or near 100 on all three tps. supplying both markets on 99(s) ... Sent from my LM-V405 using Tapatalk

    Spaceway 1 Satellite Damaged

    DIRECTV files request to move SW2 over to 138.9W to replace the disposed former SW1 ... Should have been expected as the most logical move after SW1's recent mishap and demise I suppose ...

    I doubt it ... Or that it would work well if at all if they tried by coverting a C-band BUD or something. Since they'd really have to build a new LNBF for it as well. As the ones manufactured for DIRECTV have a fixed separation between the feedhorns (i.e., a "monoblock" arrangement) and can...

    No, there's actually a Reverse Band 99/101/103 SL-3 type LNBF made specifically for the 1.2m AK/HI dish that I was asking about. See the "SL3RBAH (AU4)" under the "North American Market" in the attachment from WNC. Looks just like the former one you have but has six outlets instead of four...

    Say, do you know if DIRECTV ever released the six outlet Reverse Band capable SL-3 LNB for the 1.2m AK/HI dish in that market? Which WNC at least lables it as "SL3RBAH (AU4)" in their LNBF products catalog .... Sent from my LM-V405 using Tapatalk

    Edgecutter??

    Same problem here I just noticed ... I now keep getting directed to a site for kitchen countertops, sinks, and remodeling supplies with the same "iamanedgecutter.com" URL Sent from my LM-V405 using Tapatalk

    That's just it, they shouldn't show up only with a RB LNB. But the assumption was that it might be a firmware issue for non-RB LNBs that DIRECTV engineers just didn't bother to correct which I see now is incorrect. Thus as you suggest, I guess it's just something odd going on with the OP's...

    Good guess ... As that may indeed be the case since I admittedly have a SWiM type SL-5RB myself ... Sent from my LM-V405 using Tapatalk

    Ok, ... Strange then that your 103(ca) tp. screen still reads the outdated "N/A" for tps. 1-8, which have long been activated and lit up. Just like my HR54's 103(ca) screen has all tps. 1-24 authorized and with levels for months now. ... Sent from my LM-V405 using Tapatalk

    Also, I wonder if these displays are from an old receiver like an H/HR20 or something that DIRECTV doesn't bother to update their signal level screens any longer? As I notice that 103(ca) tps. 1-8 are still showing as "N/A" when they should all now have levels on them (or at least zeros if out...

    Yep ... Clearly the dish is out of alignment affecting the much narrower beam peak Ka band signals .... Sent from my LM-V405 using Tapatalk

    Test on Boat First

    Although I have to believe that past some future point DIRECTV is going to really accelerate the turn offs of local spotbeams at 119 and the 101. Since at the ultra-slow and inconsistent pace they're going now for turning off the LiL spots on 119, I don't think even after 5 years will be...

    Watching recorded content on dvr from the app?

    Can't comment as to what may wrong with the NFL Sunday ticket app. But the CSR is essentially correct, you can't stream videos from your DVR out of home any longer ... As DIRECTV removed that feature from the "Mobile DVR" service some time ago now when they never could get it to work properly...
