    Thanks. Looks like I better wait for a couple of weeks just to be sure.

    I'll continue to update post#1 with TLE updates until D10 is back to 102.815°, and will update the notification thread when the D10 drift is complete.

    Would rather not leave this thread open for that 5-10 days, because the thread has a tendency to drift when nothing is going on. :)

    I like it better when satellites drift. :)

    If the value of the D10 asset has changed significantly, we might see a SEC filing - that's how we first learned about the issues on D10 in the first place?

    Sah-wheat! Way to go DirecTV, "finding a Way!" that is so awesome. Now we can get back to our regularly schedule geeky events, eh? :p Seriously though, this means we can start anticipating much more HD Channels to light up in the near future, right?! :)

    I'm moderately curious why there is so much variability in my D10 CONUS signal strength when the D12 is just dead-on 95/96 across the board. My dish hasn't been touched in this period.

    The D10 CONUS readings are by no means "bad" --they run from 85-95, with eight of the fourteen in the 88-90 range. It just seems a little odd that they have a good deal of variability in them when the D12 are so invariable (and beautifully high). Nor have I noticed any significant change in them as D10 ambled the few miles from one spot to another and back.

    Does that say something about the two sats themselves?

    So this gives D12 room for how many more HD channels?​

    Well, at a ballpark of 5 channels per transponder, that's 75. Of course, I believe a chunk of that will be kept in reserve for at least a little while.

    So 50 for full time channels and 30 for part time sports?
