    I don't see it on 510. I'm not using a custom channel list either. I'm using all channels.

    Hummmmmm...most curious....I am using a MPEG2 only receiver(RCA DTC-100)
    I wonder if only MPEG2 only equip. is "allowed" to receive it?? BTW if you are
    thinking that the faux mention of a HR-21 has anything to do with this, you
    would be wrong, as the video is the same "old" one that use to be running.
    If others can "see" this channel(510) please post results in this thread?
    Thanks, moonman:)

    We've not seen any official notice but seems very probable.

    Also just modified the first post to make it clear that there were two FCC letters and one "grant of authority". That's all we've found officially.

    Need some more detective work to see if there are any other "official" postings anywhere in FCC database.

    Same here. The video is gone. When I go to any of the channels it used to be on the guide just says channel not available. I guess D figures if you haven't gotten the message by now you aren't watching D much anyway :lol:

    I have looked through the "Daily Digest" on the FCC website, and I cannot find anything related to granting of Special Temporary Authority for D*. Maybe someone more familiar with the fcc website can take a peak? Or let some of us know where to go and look? :)

    Cheers,
    John

    The FCC must have taken advanced lessons from Microsoft on how to hide information.

    It took the FCC more than a month to grant authority for the June 7th STA. I wouldn't expect the FCC to act on the August 16th STA in less than a week. Hopefully, if all the ducks are lined up, the FCC will act before September 1st.

    I also searched the Daily Digests for reports of the same file names and types that had the earlier July 27 STA approval and came up empty as of today's issue.
    If others want to join the searching in Daily Digests they are linked at:

    http://www.fcc.gov/Daily_Releases/Daily_Digest/2007/dd2007.html

    I was looking for files similar to the July 27 one which looks like this, but I was looking for new dates and numbers on the "Report No: SAT-xxxxx:

    A search of DA-07-3445A1.txt for "DirecTV" was successful. There have been a number of "Report No. SAT-xxxxx posted since July 27. but nothing was found on DirecTV in any of the DA-07-xxxxxx.txt files posted that I searched.

    This is an FCC search from today for STA info from Directv since 8/15/2007. Only one shows up, and that's the 8/16/2007 STA application (note that the date is contained in the file number). When the FCC takes action on it, there will be a "grant of authority" associated with the STA application.

    Code:
    SAT-STA-20070816-00115	E	DIRECTV Enterprises, LLC	S2641	 	 	-	Filed - payment received

    Looks like the "SAT-" FCC digest updates are regular every Friday.

    Will look tomorrow.
