even though I don't think they will have any new channels on Wednesday, I sure hope I am wrong. ;)

I'm getting up the same time as Scobuck. :D

D10 went live very quickly after people saw SS. They started popping channels up for brief periods. Scobuck has the right idea to be on the look out, I think things will go live much sooner than expected. Cant wait to put my slimline back up Friday.

Clocking in with most transponders at 95, the lowest at 91.

Lets hope for 6am Wednesday, but realistically, I think it will be next week on the 30th.

I hope we have the MPEG 2 to MPEG 4 conversion tomorrow. I know its been said July 31st but it would be sweet to have all HD channels in MPEG 4 tomorrow.

Ain't happen soon - look for a shapes of the transponders - they are overlapping !
Now imagine what will happen with digital stream up there.

The recent images you posted were the first I've ever seen. Are you saying the lines on those images should be broken up between each transponder? Do you have an image that shows what a signal should look like?

Thanks for the education!

Wow - I checked out my signal levels on 99(a) this morning on my H21 - readings were from 44 to 78.

That seems pretty low, my HR20 is still in the 91+. How are your readings on the other satellites?

Jason,
The 3 main satellites, usually low 90's... 103 I get in the 70's. (It used to be high 80's when I was first installed).

I called them about it, and they told me readings in the 70's for the HD satellite was fine (which I know it's not optimal)

By FCC regulation there should be safety gap 4 MHz between CONUS tpns and 8 MHz between spot beam tpns.
Look for other pictures what I posted on this site.
