    There is some shuffling in the lower 600s that should be done including better grouping of BTN alternate channels. But I posted it to show things are happening. If you use favorites like I do, it may not get noticed.

    I guess that means we won't be getting the Pétanque Channel.

    Oh yeah... the 600s are a mess.

    Between the weird channel numberings, the CIG issues (more on that in a minute), and all those freaking alternate channels, I have remind myself which of the channels I'm actually able to receive (I don't subscribe to the sports package). However, considering that with with three moves, DirecTV could easily place the channels focusing on Soccer to be in the same lump and have FCS Alternate be in a more logical position as well, that they would go ahead and do that. :rolleyes:

    As for the CIG issues I said I was getting back to, I'd LOVE to believe that DirecTV moving GolTV might actually allow them to correct the CIG issue with that channel. It's annoying that the system knows that I don't get GolTV channel 426, and the SD version of 620, but thinks I get the HD version. However, the most likely outcome is that I will continue to have the false results on GolTV HD #620, and gain a false reading on BeIN Sports. :rolleyes:

    RIP Sullivan Walker... :(

    Do we have anything definite about tomorrow [Wednesday, Aug. 15]?

    I am anticipating a contract agreement allowing DirecTV to carry the brand-new Pac-12 Network.

    That's good.

    I was figuring this would be at DirecTV's Facebook page.

    Yep!

    I wonder if the beIN Sports feed on 426 will be an alternate audio thing, or is it a separate channel on 119°?!

    Yep... even the older episodes that were not filmed in HD.

    That being said, they look better than some of the HD programs I've seen, so I doubt many will be able to notice the difference.
