    The attachments to this post cover all U.S. DIRECTV Channels and Transponders, CONUS (Continental U.S. or National beams) and LIL (Local Into Local or Spot beams). Periodically we also include the OTA (Over The Air) channel information.

    Directv-Latin America provides satellite coverage for the Caribbean, Mexico, Central America and South America; Directv-LA data is separate and not included here.

    The single Excel document provides all the CONUS, LIL and OTA data for DIRECTV Satellites at the 72.5W, 95W, 99W, 101W, 103W, 110W and 119W positions.

    Two supplemental documents are also provided:

    • A Network-Market-DMA Networklist cross-reference sheet. This information is particularly useful in understanding the LIL data.

    • A Network Decoder map showing the satellites and transponders graphically as they appear on your receiver's signal strength display.
    All documents are fully unprotected so you may copy and use the data as you wish.

    Just updated the TPN Excel file. It now reflects the TPN data as of 12/13/09. There appear to be only nominal changes since the previous data of 11/28/09.

    We've not included the OTA data, so this new file is only half the size of the previous capture.

    It does include those D10 channels labeled *TEST. :)

    For those who have asked -- the 'Networklist' and 'Network Decoder' documents have not been updated because there are no changes to either of those documents. The posted versions are still current.

    I think net id 12 and 13 reserved for two future sats at 99W ( BSS ?) and open id line for 103W (16, ...); will new D12 get net#16 ?

    Any reason why almost half of the transponder mappings for the Los Angeles market (Network ID 624) are missing in this latest Excel document? :confused:

    Particularly so for the SD channels.

    OTA info. is quite inaccurate as well, but that is of no matter and I thought was no longer going to be included in the transponder maps anyhow.

    I have a (hopefully not dumb) question about the Network Decoder and Transponder Map:
    In the Network Decoder document for transponders that correlate to the receiver screens for satellite 101, the satellite/band column lists D4S, D8 or D9S, but the Transponder map document shows 'Sats at 101 W' for all those transponders. Does that just mean that it's one of those three satellites?

    Receiver doesn't need to distinguish those three satellites at 101W and system tables doesn't provide data for such separation. I think it's relevant to control room personnel, not for customers or STB.

    HoTat2,

    Attached is an Excel of just the LA Market as of 1/24/10. The fresh update is thanks to doctor j. I think the missing data for net 624 on the 1/2/10 spreadsheet was my error in not incorporating an update. Sorry.

    Just for info - OTA data was included on the 1/2/10 run because I had a few requests for an OTA 'refresh'. I do not plan to provide OTA on a regular basis.

    I was't really expecting/wanting to know which of those 3 satellites corresponded to each transponder. I was merely trying to verify that I was correct in thinking that the 'Sats at 101W' designation was shorthand for the combination of those 3 sats. I am inferring from your post that I am correct.

    Gordon,

    You are totally correct. "Sats at 101W" is just a shorthand way of saying "it's from one of the sats at the 101W slot."
