I noticed a while back that Raleigh North Carolina locals and Charlotte locals in HD were on 61.5 Eastern Arc plus they are still on 118.7 but i seen where they were uplinked on 129 west i think it was last week or the week before. I was wondering if anybody knows if Greensboro North Carolina locals in HD will be on the 129 also or just on the 61.5 cause right now i'm using a 2 dish soloution and would like to go to just a one dish soloution.


WXII 12

WFMY 2

WGHP 8

WXLV 45




Thanks for any help.

I don't remember seeing them on any lists for 129W. If you have all mpeg4 compatible receivers, you can replace your Dish 1000.2 (or 1000+) and Dish 500 wing dish with a 1000.4.

MPEG 4 MPEG 2

That's just it i'm running a 722 DVR a 211 and 2 301s and of course the 301s are MPEG 2. I don't believe the 301s are compatible with eastern arc are they?

Unfortunately, they are not. The 211k would be the equivalent basic mpeg4 receiver, although for a one-time fee of $39 an external HDD can be added, turning it into a basic DVR with no DVR fee assessed by E*. You maybe could use a 1000+ dish. It receives 110, 118.7, 119, and 129. It also uses a DPP44 switch which is expensive ($180-$200). Unless E* does this for you, you'll be dollars ahead using 2 dishes.

The Raleigh HD locals are on the table list for 129W and I overlooked them. I don't see them on the list released by E* though. Maybe I overlooked them again. See below:
