    No, they are planning to do a red button reset, then enter the code to force a software download.

    This precludes a technician on-site call?

    Looks like now that D10 is positioned to start...as soon as they get approval on this, they'll start their efforts to ramp up D10 to full power, test, and then return to the original position.

    Good news....reading the details was also interesting.

    The timing of this STA is actually very nice, if all goes as planned.

    This STA is for the testing after the amelioration, so technically they could offload D10 and perform the corrective action prior to 6/2, then test for a few days, and move it back.

    This would be much sooner then I would have ever thought, but then maybe this is just wishful thinking.

    Either way, the dates are nice.

    Thanks for keeping the updates coming Sixto. It all sounds very nice - especially since I am in Florida and not subject to the excessive 7db signal levels they are about to annhilate Colorado and surrounding areas with! :lol:

    I was always expecting a "quick fix"... though now that I've said it, I'll probably be wrong...

    It just seemed like moving 400 LiL and 60+ spots might take a while. :)

    Anyone have an educated guess from this filing as to what they are actually doing to repair D10?

    This is just an educated guess!

    Part of the spot beam array failed to deploy properly the first time around,I suspect they are going to spin the bird to centrifugally deploy the array.

    Sort of like flicking your wrist to deploy a knife blade.They may also re run the sequence that released the arrays in the first place.

    I'm honestly not educated enough to even begin to imagine the work that might involve... but I felt (from some of the facts out there) that DirecTV didn't expect it to take long... which was good enough for me.
