    Subject correction - "A3" Before D* MPEG-4 LIL Channel Description


    Just curious.. I noticed this morning that if I look in the Guide and look at my MPEG-4 HD LILS, that there is an "A3" before the channel description above the Guide. I am in the Harrisburg/Lancaster, PA market using an HR20. Anyone else seeing these with their locals or in this area.

    What does "A3" mean?

    I have no idea, but we get an "A3" channel in DFW also, or should I say we don't get it. "A3 33" has been in the guide as an HD local channel 33 (CW) for a long time but it is not transmitting yet.

    I have them here too.

    I also corrected the title for everyone.

    Cheers,

    Could those channels be coming of the 103A satellite?

    No idea. Just started noticing the A3 a few days ago.

    Good thought, but I don't think they have turned up any spotbeams to the home yet. If it were in the test channel posts, then I might be swayed.

    Cheers,
    Tom

    I'm sorry, I meant that if they were only in the test channel posts and not in actual homes right now. That is the part that invalidates the thought as there are no in home channels from D10 yet.

    Cheers,
    Tom
