On both devices I get great speed like about 3.7 mbps constant and in about an hour the speed suddenly drops to 0.3 mbps. Does anyone know what might be causing this? Is it the ISP that is throttling. Its...

I've also made him purchase the portable wineguard dish and will try to pull 129 from between the...

    Internationals Mirror from 118 to 61.5

    With the recent uplink reports, there are a lot of SD channels that have started up on 61.5. Is dish planning on mirroring the internationals as well on 61.5? It would make sense as that would keep the whole east coast back to a single dish solution for the subs that need internationals. As for...

    Locals on ConUS change observations

    Since Evansville got moved to the spot on 61.5, the channels would still come in if I did a check switch and blocked of 61.5, thus forcing dish to pull those channels form 77. Having moved to Lexinigton, KY, the channels are getting defaulted to 77 instead of 61.5. If I do a check switch by...

    Advise on Locals. Move from Evansville, IL

    Evansville has gone live on Spot on 61.5. Its still active on 77. Given the history how long before dish shuts down 77? for now I've put a foil on 61.5 and get the locals of 77 as its CONUS. ConUS Locals are falling like stars. Lexington, KY Locals are CONUS on 61.5. Whats the assumption or...

    Will dish eventually replicate Internationals from 118.5 to 77

    Since 77 has programming space, can we request dish to replicate internationals on 77. This will have benefits to dish for multiple directions and a Single dish usage specially on the Eastern Arc. Now having said that, I understand dish moved all internationals of 61.5. I believe that was...

    Spotbeam Usage on 61.5 (18, 19, 20, 21,22: Unused)

    Since 61.5 signal is very strong in the west coast as well, why dosen’t dish use Spot beams 18, 19, 20, 21,22 zones on 61.5. Those spot beams cover the west coast very well. If people have a choice of arcs on East, then why is west left out. I’ve seen lots of folks using 129 in the east. There...

    Is 61.5 Going Away ? confused

    I have seen a lot of movement on 61.5 in the past few days. Internationals are moved and as per the international move report., it says the move is targeted mainly to add more space to deliver more HD to the customers. If so then why are other HD channels moving to 72.7? If 61.5 is going down...
