    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).

    OTA (Over The Air) data is provided in this DBSTalk thread.

    DIRECTV Locals (LIL) information is provided in this DBSTalk thread.

    A single Excel file provides all the CONUS and LIL data for DIRECTV Satellites at the 72.5W, 95W, 99W, 101W, 103W, 110W and 119W positions.
    Note that at the bottom of the Excel page, there are four tabs or 'sheets'.
    • CONUS TPN MAP lists all CONUS channels in channel number sequence
    • LIL TPN MAP lists all LIL channels in network number (market name) sequence
    • LIL MARKET LIST provides the cross reference information necessary to understand the LIL data

    • CHANNEL COUNT provides a count of channels provided per satellite


    One supplemental document is provided:

    • A NetworkDecoder map showing the satellites and transponders graphically as they appear on your receiver's signal strength display. The NetworkDecoder is updated only when there are changes.

    The most current documents are always provided. All documents are fully unprotected so you may copy and use the data as you wish.

    An easy change -- the result of a good suggestion:
    There are now four "sheets" of data within the single Excel file. At the bottom of Excel display, note four tabs labeled "CONUS", "LOCAL-INTO-LOCAL", "NETWORK LIST" and "CHANNEL COUNT."

    Instead of our usual single Excel display, we now have four:

    • One for CONUS channels, which are shown in Channel Number sequence
    • One for LIL channels, which are shown in Market (DMA) sequence. (See the NetworkList document to find your Market and DMA.)
    • One for the Network List cross reference information
    • One for the Channel Count information
    Let me know if you like (or don't like) this approach....

    :)

    gct, what is that "D10 or D12 @103W" 'duopoly' ;) - do we missed some info where the particular channel locating ?

    We have two 'duopoly' situations:


    1. In the case of LIL Spot beams from Network 14, we are not able to distinguish which channels are from D10 or D12, because they share TPN numbers and TID numbers.
    2. In the case of LIL Spot beams from Network 0, we are not able to distinguish which channels are from D4S or D9S, because they share TPN numbers and TID numbers.
    The notes on the 'ChannelCount' document attempt to clarify that in these two cases, we cannot determine which satellite is the signal source.

    While p.2 is certainly cannot be resolved, that p.1 is not an issue - D10 and D12 has own unique TID numbers plus any owner of STB could obtain info about his LiL channels off Net#14 using USB-Serial dongle.
    We should fixed p.1 promptly.

    A quick note from Doctor J, regarding the new 1/12 TPN Map:


    There appear to be some new short-term fill-in NYC stations....

    Looks like:
    MKT 82 Greenwood-Greenville, MS (ABC & FOX & NBC)
    MKT 200 Watertown, NY ( ABC & NBC)

    An updated TPN Map with data of 1/12/11 has been posted:

    Please note there are now four 'sheets' within the single Excel file:

    • one for CONUS data
    • one for LIL data
    • one for the LIL Network List
    • one for the Channel Count data


    Same data -- just different packaging.

    :)
