    Upcoming DirecTV Local HD Markets (October)

    Does anyone know what satellite the Springfield, MA locals are on? I have troubles with 119 during the summer and early fall (leaves). Thanks

    Multi-switch problem(message 749)

    Same thing Same problem- same sequence but Directv sent me a new H21. That didn't help. I also get an occasional message 'unsupported audio input" but that doesn't seem to cause any problems. I unplug it, plug it back in and get the Hi, your new receiver is starting up. It then gets...

    What Transponders?

    I read the threads and have a couple of questions. First, are the new satellites 103b and 99? Next, what transponders on each should be giving signals. I get strong signals on some of them but others are listed as n/a. Finally, what channels will be on which transponders? Thanks

    Has D* moved network HD to a different Satellite?

    Thanks, does the fact that they are moving HD to 119 mean that 119 will now become the HD satellite for the network HDs and ESPN, the channels I have lost. I still get ESPN2 and some others. When I got HD I was told the new satellites would hold the HD.

    Has D* moved network HD to a different Satellite?

    I have been getting the network HD channels fine. Suddenly I cannot. I know I have an issue with the 119 but am not concerned since the new HD will not be on that satellite. Does anyone know if a change has occured?

    Please help with 119 problem.

    I am in the Northeast. When I had my new 5lnb dish installed all channels came in well. As the leaves came the stations on the 119 satellite began to fade and finally are gone completely. I contacted my installer (a local whom I trust very much). He came up, pointed out the tree that is...

    New 5lnb install

    After cutting trees, limbing etc I now have a clear shot at the satellites for HD. D is scheduled to come Monday to install (if the rain doesn't wash them away). The dish will require 100 feet of cable to reach the tv. Is a booster necessary and does D do this?

    Which TV for Standard Definition

    Hi, as I continue on the quest for HDTV and a bigger screen I run into the fact that much programming I watch is SD. My question is, what tv is best able to handle SD without the picture being a bit fuzzy? I am looking at a Sony LCD (Bravia V series) and a Sony rear projection but am open to...

    New HDTV Satellite location

    HI, first time here. I live near the top of a hill with some trees between me and the south and south west. Currently I have Directv and when I check signal strength I am over 90 for the 101 sat and in the 60's for the 110 and 119 sats. I would like a new tv (flat, HD of course) but would...
