    doctor J, is there a thread elsewhere that monitors the 119 satellite? I have it, because when I originally subscribed to Directv, Fox Deportes was part of the SportsPak and I told them to make sure I'd be able to watch it.

    So its possible Espn Deportes will be going HD soon reading post #640 ?

    Its good to hear that the Spanish line-up is getting some HD love.

    We still could use Fox Deportes HD and Telemundo channel 406 in HD .

    D* does not pick up my local Telemundo WTMO 31 which has HD and it shows up on Dish networks locals.

    Best way I find to do that is to regularly download Gary Toma's weekly updated TPN map Excel spreadsheets from the "Tips and Resources" pinned thread http://www.dbstalk.com/forum/56-directv-tips-and-resources/ .

    Then after enable editing for the "CONUS" spreadsheet, use the cell filter to display only listings from the 119 satellite.

    Note: The shaded entries are "usually" in HD.

    At least that's the way I do it. ...

    Probably best to post this question in the HD Anticipation thread, then link to Doctor J's post #640 here for reference, since this thread is mainly for discussion of DIRECTV's satellite transmission technology .

    Wonder if this will be the limit at 4 HD channels on 119 without needing to convert another CONUS transponder for exclusive HD usage, since they are only 24 MHz wide. I realize Dish can squeeze more HD channels into their 24 MHz Ku band tps. by both down-rezzing to 1440 x 1080 and going to 8-PSK. modulation (assuming levels of temporal compression are the same). But so far DIRECTV HD is still at the full 1920 x 1080 resolution and only using 8-PSK to reduce the SR to fit the 24 MHz bandwidth limitation on Ku band.

    Since UniMas is now available in english base packages alongside Univision maybe they'll move it to 99 or 103 down the road where similar channels like TWC Deportes HD and Univision Deportes HD are and where Galavision HD will be, freeing up room for another spanish package exclusive in HD on that transponder. Or after D14 goes into service, move all the spanish HD channels to 99 and 103, and reclaim the transponder for future SD Spanish additions like HTV, Infinito, CBeebies, Sorpresa, or Univision's other networks.

    My main anticipation wish has come true for beIN Sports Español and ESPN Deportes, but I have to see it to believe it, Now bring in Fox Deportes HD, and bring back GolTV HD for all the soccer fans.

    I wouldn't be so skeptical, especially if the channels went to test under their native name (I'm not counting the asterisk - it's a mark), not that 'dark horses' under names like *TEST1.
