I was looking over TNG Tony's Channel listing and news and noticed:

HITN channel 9401 is now uplinked AND AVAILABLE to subscribers in MPEG4 on tp 21 at 61.5°. As mentioned in the previous note, this is the second attempt at having both MPEG4 and MPEG2 on the same channel from different satellites available to subscribers at the same time. My MPEG4 receiver (622) happily tunes to 61.5° tp 21 while my MPEG2 receivers (501 & 1000) happily tune to 110° tp 3.

I have a VIP211 that gets MPEG2 and MPEG4 and checked where 9401 was coming from and my 211 tells me it's from 110 tp 3.

Questions: 1) is this still being transmitted from 61.5 tp21 in MPEG4. and if it is...
2) why doesn't my 211 receive it from there?

Also, I'm thinking of "moving" to Cleveland when the New York SDs go to spotbeam and noticed that some of the SD channels are being simulcast in MPEG4 to 61.5 tp1/14 which I can receive easily. The MPEG2 versions on 110 tp29/9 don't come in at all. Are the simulcast MPEG4s on 61.5 tp 1/14 available???

I don't care about HITN either but needed to know because of the Cleveland side channels being simulcast in MPEG4 on a transponder I can receive...
