    I guess you need to have some experience watching these things unfold. The "up to" or "by" kinds of claims have, at best, a much less than unity chance of coming to pass. Add to this the latest forecasts for the launch of DIRECTV 12 being late August (more likely early October as things currently stand) and you know with some certainty that the earliest anything could happen would likely be late November. By that time, they're usually hunkering down for the holidays except for a few LIL here and there.

    Ok so my brain seems to be mushy today.

    With all the excitement about BBC (america) HD coming in July, How does an SD channel changing to HD affect the "available bandwith" or "slots" or "space on a sat"

    I know we talk about how much room is out there, but what happens when you upgrade a channel?

    It takes away one slot since you have to add a separate HD channel.

    BBC America HD would not replace BBC America SD, so you would lose one slot since you would be adding a new HD channel.

    do we have to wait until all the receivers and lnb's can work with MPEG4 before SD channels go away?

    re: the last few posts ...

    going MPEG4 HD doesn't "replace MPEG2 SD". it just "adds" a new MPEG4 HD channel.

    most of the SD channels are at the 101 slot (several actual satellites).

    the national HD channels are at the 99/103 slots (D10/D11).

    the HD LiL are also at 99/103 (D10/D11/SW1/SW2).

    the old MPEG2 HD is at 110/119 and slowly going away.

    "adding HD" just adds an HD channel equivalent at 99/103 but leaves the SD channel wherever it was originally.

    It may be difficult to get all the various organizations to come together under a single umbrella agreement. Cricket is a relatively small universe to bring together.

    I think for Cricket Ticket you need an additional dish at 72.5 though I'm not sure.

    D* claims it requires an international dish at 95 digrees plus an international receiver that can receive 95 degree signal.
