    You're confusing the 'company line' with what DirecTV actually does. Sept 19th is the 'official' date, but given all the media events, common sense reasons, it's highly likely will get something today....right? right? please god say I'm right......

    Oh and sorry for the CNNHD thing, it may have just been CNNH. I promise to be less trigger happy....

    Went to check signal strength and got the conflict message that I was recording Taladega night, Ricky Bobby etc. I had heard this was a software glich. I tried my other 2 HR20's and I am getting the same thing on all three HR20's. ????????????

    I'm going to ask the question everyone's been wondering and I mean no disrespect: It appears as though English may not be your native language. So I'm curious where you are from/what your native language is.

    Again, no disrespect intended at all. I'm just curious. I think my post history will show that I'm very 'pro' EaglePC. :D

    If it weren't for people like him, this wait would be less entertaining!

    So rather than giving us our HD, it sounds like the engineers are watching Talladega Nights! :lol:

    I don't want the moderators thinking I'm attacking anyone for speaking differently than anyone else. I'm just curious and wanted to make it painfully obvious I wasn't trying to be mean or anything.

    Speaking of being mean: Looks like Captain Obvious Prediction on another board was wrong about testing yesterday. No signal spike that I saw (other than the one EaglePC reported, mind you). I've heard it said that someone with a handheld signal meter was able to read TP11 loud and clear. Can anyone verify that?

    Also, why would they start with TP11? Why not start with TP1 and go up? (that might have been a good question for the tech thread, may it rest in piece).

    The Head Engineer's wife's favorite number is 11.

    Seriously though, we don't know which transponders they're using as Spot-Beams, so it's possibly 1-10 are spot-beams...

    They can also be using the transponders that our software doesn't allow us to see, since there are 32 of them...

    Actually, there are only 14 National transponders and 10 spotbeam transponder channels on D10. 32 is the number of transponders in a Ku allocation of 500MHz of bandwidth, but DIRECTV used fewer transponders that are wider on its D10/D11 bandwidth allocation. More usable bandwidth that way.

    Cheers,
    Tom

    I would guess that TP11 is probably pretty close to the "middle" of the frequency band that D10 uses. If so, that would be a pretty good place to start. Just a WAG.

    BTW, I, too, am pro EaglePC. May his eyes soon spot some new HD.

    Why do I so want to see Paula Dean in glorious Hd goodness? That's so wrong.
