    One significant open item, is when will the "procedure" start. It seems like 6/14 might be worst case, but maybe it can be sooner, maybe.

    We'll know more after the next STA filing and/or after we see D10 get to 102.6 and understand when every D10 channel is offloaded.

    It seems like the first half (move/offload/ameliorate) may be the longest leg, much longer then getting D10 back a couple of tenths of a degree and starting up some new HD, assuming that the "new" HD is going on D10.

    If the fix is quick (7-10 days), and starts 6/14, maybe we can see D10 light up by the end of June.

    Maybe. :)

    Hopefully D12 has more capability for LiL then D10, and LiL comes soon, but have no idea.

    How does the remapping from one sat to another say happen during a broadcast? Signal sent down from the sats to all receivers to look at another TP? Can the recivers do that while tuned to a channel that is being remapped?

    Not sure if it's related but the 'Letterman' show just left the planet with a 'No need to call us' banner around 12:20. . .Local channel 3.

    OTA 3.1 is fine. . .

    Again, not sure it's related to the move but had to tune away from 3 and back to it after a couple of blank screens. . . it's fine now.

    In the last day or so I have started to see a lot of 771 messages. I looked up the first dozen (202,207,212,215,216,229,231,241,242,244,247,248 all HD) and according to Lyngsat they are all on DirecTV 10. Could this move be the cause of my problems? Is there anything I can do about it?

    There has not been any confirmation of any movement of D10.

    Post#1 always has D10's latest location, per the latest data available.

    Perhaps someone try to steal your antenna. :)

    As to mapping those channels - DTV often shuffle channels, so check latest assignments here, look into gct's tables and Sixto's dedicated thread.

    No movement as of 12n ET today.

    Will try to keep post#1 up-to-date but trying to take a break from the 24x7 TLE monitoring.

    I wonder if we'll have gaps in TLEs from NORAD during the drift, similar to what we've seen with the bigger drifts for D10, D11 and D12.
