    3 of my 4 Cinemax HD channels have disappeared from the 310-314 mapdowns and are now only showing up in the 6100's.
    Any one else seeing this ?
    I am on the old 61.5 110 119 system, could this be why ?

    Thanks,
    Murray

    Yes -
    You should call Dish and get an Eastern Arc setup (61.5, 72.7, 77) to replace your split arc setup.

    One thing about this - ALL your receivers will need to be the VIP models, so if you have any older SD MPEG2 receivers, they will need to changed out as well.

    Happened last week, you should have gotten several notices about upgrading your dish by now. If you have Starz, you should see them changed as well.

    So far:
    6100 / 9440 MAX-W - Cinemax West (311)
    6101 / 9441 5-MAX - 5 Star Max (314)
    6102 / 9458 MAX-E - Cinemax East (310)
    6103 / 9435 STARZ - Starz! (350)
    6105 / 9486 STZC - Starz! Comedy (354)
    6106 / 9455 HBO2E - HBO 2 East (301)
    6107 / 9451 HBOCY - HBO Comedy (307)
    6108 / 9453 HBOFM - HBO Family (305)

    The three Cinemax moved 2/17/11 at 6:16pm ET - the other five moved a week later (2/23/11 at 1:36pm ET).

    Other 61.5 HD channels with mirrors on 72.7 (ready to move) ...
    9454 HBOSG - HBO Signature (302)
    9478 HBO-W - HBO West (303)
    9452 HBOZ - HBO Zone (308)
    9459 HBOLT - HBO Latino (309)
    9480 SHOTO - Showtime Too (320)
    9513 SHOCS - Showtime Showcase (321)
    9497 SK&FM - Starz! Kids & Family (356)
    9475 FX - FX (136)
    9500 BIG10 - Big Ten Sports Network (439)

    The 6100's are temporary ... one last chance to get a complete arc dish.

    I have lost the same channels, I have 61.5/110/119, what should I do or what do I need to have?

    I assume I need the 61.5, 72.7, 77 setup.

    Those and more throughout the rest of the year (on top of the channels added to 72.7 in 2010).

    You need to add 72.7 or 129 to your setup, or change out your dish for the 61.5-72.7-77 Eastern Arc dish.

    The only reason I can see to leave it up is if you have older receivers (non-ViP) that need a signal. Others have left theirs up out of personal preference.

    Thanks, I couldn't see much value of leaving it up. Just have the one receiver.
