    The change from part-time to full-time is fairly simple, but it's always possible that they will be making other changes as well.

    Today, to transmit ESPN3D, they take down a Cinema HD channel, and bring up ESPN3D.

    Starting next week, they will just leave the channel up full-time, and they've already allocated bandwidth, and are testing.

    I'm not familiar with the 3D issue with ESPN but it's doubtful that this one change would affect anything, since it's using similar bandwidth to that it was using previously, but now it's full-time instead of part-time.

    But it's always possible that they're tweaking others things as well to address the issue you reference.

    This issue is simple, Directv is sending ESPN 3D in 720pSBS, an optional 3D format that companies like Pioneer choose not to support in 2010 AVRs. We know that ESPN 3D is available in TopBottom format on other providers. DirecTV does not have to send it in a mandatory format because they don't have any HDMI 1.4 receivers in the market yet, so mandatory 3D broadcast formats mean nothing. They also do not allow up conversion in their sat receivers to 1080i with 3D content. This leaves many with 1 choice, let your satellite company dictate how to hook up the box...straight to the display, who cares that you want to switch thru your AVR you spent $$$ on...IMHO, poor decision, but probably should not be too hard on them as they are providing 3D without forcing consumers to pay for a new sat receiver.....yet...

    For whatever interest it may have, my Onkyo 2010 AVR (tx-nr3008) is working fine with the new channel 106.

    Sixto, out of curiosity.... it has been reported that Universal Sports has been made "live" on channel 625.

    Does this channel not show up on your scans, or do you not report it since it is not HD?

    I have to say that NasaTV looks much clearer and not as over compressed now that it made the move to mpeg4.

    It's still SD but at least it's bearable SD now.

    Well, you have to consider the source, Directv...of course it's still in SD.

    Okay Audience is on 5 spots now! Yeah I know, " it doesn't take additional bandwidth", but 5 spots is overkill.

    PGA Championship is over, channels gone.

    BTW Sixto, the "future" info in the locked thread is outdated and should be removed.
