    Knowing his posting pattern he probably heard it from a CSR (which apparently to him are always accurate) or he just made it up

    The fact that this says "DIRECT TV" instead of "DIRECTV" seems to raise a red flag for me.....

    Total records returned: 5

    Oh, and to Eagle PC, the satellite isn't moving around any more than it has in the past week or so. It always moves from slightly north of the equator to slightly south, and back again.

    No, if you're UTC -4, then you need to ADD 4 hours, which means that it's now 21:39 UTC.

    If it is 5:33 in New York, it is 9:33 in Greenwich. New York is four hours behind Greenwich during the summer and five hours behind in winter.

    Keep away from that DDT. It's messing up your math.

    Is mentioning how many hours before they can begin moving "off topic"? I've seen some "off topic" icons pop up lately and they're pretty confusing because they're coming later than what's intended or they're kind of borderline as to what's off topic.
