    This is by far the most frustrating issue I have with DirecTV.

    Just a heads up,

    KDOC-DT 56 based in Anaheim, CA. has been added to the Los Angeles HD LiL lineup at around 3:00 AM this morning.

    PQ looks good ...

    This now brings the L.A, DMA to 11 HD locals carried by DIRECTV.

    Utica, NY is certainly on the list to go live yet this calendar year. That is good news for you at this time of year: you should get service sooner, not later. Historically, there is precious little planned (or accomplished) from Thanksgiving through Christmas.

    The "LIL MARKET LIST" is a part of the Excel that is updated weekly in the TPN Map thread. You can keep track of all this stuff yourself!

    Yes, but not all of us have been posting here for, say, the last five years, so we may not know where these things are.

    Here is a link to that same kind of question in our TPN MAP Thread (In the Tips and Information Forum).

    http://www.dbstalk.com/showthread.php?p=2880246#post2880246

    The answer you find there applies equally well to your specific question too!

    Enjoy!

    "Virtual" means they are not real local channels in your market, but are actually national feeds "re-mapped" to display in the local channel range of the channel guide.

    In your particular case they are three of the "big four" HD network feeds from New York as well as the PBSNET SD national feed normally broadcast on channels 390, 392, 396, and 389 as part of the HD DNS service. These are then "re-mapped" by your receiver to show on channels 61, 63, 60, and 65 respectively.

    Also look for these virtual channels to be removed once your "real" in market local channels which carry the same network programming go active, and unfortunately this may mean losing HD feeds for SD ones if any of your in market network locals only have SD feeds.
