90-97 on all TPs except 1 and 2 which are zeroes.
upper 90's on all but 1 and 2 here is charleston sc
in east central wisconsin, transponders 1 and 2 are 0, the rest are 91-95
Same here in Central Oregon. 1 & 2 zero but everything else between 86 and 95!
so why are TP 1 and 2 at zero?
I'm sure the DIRECTV is still in test mode so not everything is finalized yet.
Probably because they are not broadcasting a test signal on those. TP 1 showed a strong (95) signal for me yesterday. TP 2 has always shown 0.
Maybe TP 2 is broken? No one has seen this one light up at all.
As far as we know there are NO problems with the CONUS part of the sat, there are some problems with the Spotbeam section, nobody knows for sure what that means. The sat is basically parked now so they are probably in fine tuning mode, don't get too worked up over things just yet.
That is pretty much what I am getting I also noticed some 90's as well. I may or may not need an alignment but I have the protection plan so it won't cost me a penny. I am going to wait till everything is up and running before calling D* and go from there.
I'm wating too - some are in the high 60's - but most are in the mid to high 80's. NO 90's. When HI-DEF is lit, I'll see - - -
I agree that doing anything now is premature. However, I can speak from experience when I say that the Protection Plan People will not authorize a service call (unless you want to pay the $70) unless your signals are under 70 (and maybe even under 60 for HD) in clear weather.
I hear you on that I will just tell them they are in 50 and 60's if they happen to jump where they are when the guy comes out o'well **** happens
must be close

I am work now, so I can't tell you what my readings are. All tps except for 1,2, and 17 were working. At 6AM they ranged from 60 - 85, but at 11AM they ranged between 85- 97. I have never had a signal on 1,2, or 17 however.
Lastest report from Albuquerque, NM!!
Here's it goes.....
TP 1-8, 0, 0, 81, 83, 80, 83, 78, 80
TP 9-16, 84, 84, 81, 81, 83, 85, N/A, N/A
TP 17-24, 75 and 81
The signal strenth may change over time, and I think at 80 and up is better than avereges signals, Since we don't get rain fades very often here in New Mexico with a KA band on it.
Can't wait for the HD channel to go live soon!:goodjob:
