    I foresee them not duplicating any stations in SD and Hi Definition unless it's in a contract and that at the end of the contract that would stop, and since this is known about years in advance I think the number of stations with that kind of contract will be minuscule.

    I wouldn't be shocked if they moved d15 to 101 and lit up a lot of Hi Definition channels there and sold off the current 101 satelites... or at least all but one if they needed the youngest ones to move to 110.

    The c41w is ac 5ghz as I recall... but I'll try and double check.

    Could DTV just tweak the settings on the HD satellites so that they don't stay out longer in bad weather? What's the average time an HD channel stays out in bad weather?

    They can't "tweak the settings". It's a basic physics problem. The frequency of the HD signals makes them more liable to be scattered by raindrops. It' a problem well known to satellite communications operators.

    Not sure if this is reliable info but I found this on Reddit about the HS17.

    Oh, I thought I remembered reading in another thread about DTV tweaking the settings during the heavy rain months then putting them back to normal after.

    Interesting considering at CES basically told by ATT that this HS17 may not see the light of day or be commercial only. There word is the next box is a year away

    I think one should consider the source before believing everything they read at the other site.

    According to posts Scott made, he talked to Directv himself. Are you saying he isn't telling us what he was told?

    While I agree a lot coming from that site can speculation. I tend to agree with this since he was there with them And he has been the first lately with a lot of items Right now i tend to agree. They are a good 9-12 months before the next genie type product I think they honestly believe there content and mobile will keep people over a box. Which I don't agree with

    I used to think that, but I changed my mind. Moving HD channels there would only help RVers' HD reception for whatever channels Directv chose to move to 101. The rest would still be expensive to receive in HD - but now you wouldn't be able to get them at ALL with a 101 only dish. I think people in RVs would rather have access to all channels in SD then half the channels in HD and have no way to watch the other half.

    If they move D15 to 101 then I think they probably will move a bunch of HD channels there, but there doesn't seem to be much sign of them doing that. Or of them using D15 for anything at all yet, so who knows.

    I found this info on the HS17 at the WIFI Alliance site.

    Well confirms what I guessed after seeing the FCC docs, it is 4 way MIMO ac with beamforming.

    DirecTV doesn't need a modem. U-verse and Prism (CenturyLink's version of U-verse) do. It's conceivable that theye could be 'baking it in' for dual purpose.

    From what I understand of the HS-17, it will start testing this year, and doesn't use a dish, it streams through the internet like Uverse did, but with a lot better compression. The clients with it will be wireless as well. Basically for a TV/Internet bundle, you get the HS-17 for your gateway and TV Server then wireless clients for all your TVs. Rumour has it, a 4K wireless client is in the works, possibly for this new system.

    No I can not disclose my sources, but they are legit.

    That doesn't bode well for some of my neighbors stuck with CenturyLink DSL with a max download speed of 3MB......

    So this system is taking place of the U-verse current hardware. It just doesn't make any sense. So when a customer orders this new system and their ISP can't provide enough bandwidth what is DIRECTV going to say, talk to your ISP but keep paying us the bill.
