i thought i was the only one with problems lol
And you can times that times 3 for D10&11&12.
Isn't 12 just a ground spare?
Yeah it is.
It won't stay on the ground forever.
Yes but after the other 2 are launched I would think they will put it up.
So what does it mean when you have an HR20 that I've set to turn off the blue circle of lights (completely off by pressing the right/left arrow keys on the unit 4x till they turn off) and all of a sudden - they turn back on?
It means that your HR20 restarted. Unless, of course, you happened to be watching it at the time, and it didn't reboot, but that would be a new one to me.
:welcome_s to DBSTalk, jsgiv!
"all of a sudden" ... did u turn your back for 10 mins ... usually means it re-booted.
Was it ever estimated how many channels SW1&2 can handle compared to D10&11&12?.
No, he's in charge of distracting D* subscribers so they don't notice that after launching three of the World's largest communcations satellites, they still haven't added a single national HD channel.
Nope - no reboot - nothing like that - been sitting here all night waiting for the new HD channels to come on..
What I mean by "all of a sudden" is just that - they suddenly just turned on. No reboot - no interruption of service.
And yes - I checked a couple of the anticipated HD channels (TNT / A&E) to see if they've flipped to HD - no dice..
OK, that was a little bit funny. :sure:
Spaceway F1 and Spaceway F2 were each built to handle 250 HD channels -- all spotbeamed.
DIRECTV 10 and DIRECTV 11 were to add 500 spotbeamed HD channels and 75 CONUS HD channels each.
As noted in the September 2004 press release, the total of the four satellites would be 1,500 HD LIL and 150 national HD channels.
So it'll eventually be up with the rest. I thought it only be used to replace D10 or 11 if they fail.
If D10/D11 don't have any issues by a certain time frame...
It will probably used to replaced one of the older SATs in the fleet, as it is getting closer to it's end of life.
Thanks for clearing that up.
If DIRECTV were to come up with a new dish that could receive from a third Ka slot and a five input SWM, D12 could be added. Without a third slot, it is pretty much a replacement for D1x.
Not necessarily... it could be used for backhall's... couldn't it?
Not all of the Sats in DirecTV's fleet are used for transmissions to customers.
