    Agreed;

    And why the recent push to remap the national ION east feed to the local channel range in markets simply because its carried in HD now?

    Here in the LA market we have had the ION west SD national feed (now on ch. 306) remapped as local KPXN channel 30 for years.

    Interesting problem here:
    As with DNS service, there is an FCC rule here that applies to Virtual channels:
    "You can not receive programing earlier than a local station would be airing it in your time zone. Therefore, if you live in the Eastern or Central time zones, you would receive East coast channels. If you live in the Mountain or Pacific time zones, you would receive the West Coast channels."
    Interesting - with no West Coast HD feed, that means no subscribers in Mountain or Pacific will get ION HD?

    They still get ION HD on #305... just not remapped to the local channel ranges.


    I know I've said it before, and I'll say it again, I'm kind of surprised that DirecTV doesn't remap IONeHD and UNIeHD to markets like mine that don't have an affiliate of either.

    Perhaps they consider it too much trouble to coordinate empty channel slots, or simply haven't gotten around to it yet, but I'm still somewhat surprised.

    The East/West rule mainly applies to the major networks with different owership. Since Ion and Univsion own the majority of their affiliates it doesn't apply. (Not really east/west, but it was similar to how initially anyone with an O&O was able to get the HD DNS feed before HD locals launched in their market)

    It's likely part of their recent renewal. Until recently the only markets that had the remap were the ones where DirecTV once carried the local PAX/i/Ion feed as part of the locals, most of which they dropped at the last renewal around 2006. Prior to then many of the local Pax stations had partnerships with another local station and aired things like 7pm and midnight newscasts. Now the local programming is limited to an early Sunday morning public affairs show.

    They probably expanded it to now include all the markets where Ion has a local station, since they'd get more potential eyeballs being grouped with the other locals during primetime. Looking at the full LIL list, DirecTV only carries the actual local feeds for the following:

    KDMD Anchorage
    WPXA Atlanta
    WBPX Boston
    WCPX Chicago
    KPXD Dallas
    WGPX Greensboro
    KPXB Houston*
    KPXE Kansas City
    WBNA Louisville**
    WPXX Memphis
    KPXM Minneapolis
    WPXL New Orleans*
    WPXN New York
    WOPX Orlando***
    WPPX Philadelphia
    KPXG Portland, OR***
    KKPX San Francisco
    WXPX Tampa

    * HD feed in test since July 2012 (Most likely just a placeholder in the map)
    ** Also available in HD because it's not owned by Ion and has its own daytime schedule
    *** Only available in HD

    actually what happened was My Network was on KOLN/KGIN DT2 (10-2 & 11-2) in SD. Gray Broadcasting bought KSNB recently and put the HD feed on there (4-1).
    Now ironically KOLN/KGIN DT2 is in HD too

    Just an interesting observation:

    as of 4/10/13 we have 73 ION Virtual (remaps) in the LIL Data

    as of 4/10/13 we have 538 Total Virtual channels (remaps) in the LIL Data


    Not sure I understand the underlying motivation for this kind of initiative. But there must be a good (marketing?) reason there somewhere...

    PA - Berks...
    So they are what, remapping the local ion channel number to the national ion hd feed?

    That would be a good thing. I have Ch 61 WPPX out of Philly removed from my favorites list so the wife is forced to tune into IONHD instead of that overcompressed SD garbage that is Ch 61.

    I'm not seeing Ch 61 - WPPX - Philly in your chart up above, so I guess I will keep that channel off my favorites lists until I do.

    They're only doing the remaps for markets that don't have their local Ion station. Since DirecTV carries WPPX, they don't remap the national HD feed for Philly.

    It depends on the station, some are cases of smaller markets where they don't have a 24/7 affiliate of one of the networks so they get a remap of a DNS station or a neighboring affiliate. Others are cases where one station serves multiple markets in the same state, common with statewide PBS stations. Many of them appear to be instances where DirecTV carries significantly viewed stations.

    Hi. It has been a while since I last visited, but noticed the SkyMex spreadsheet has some channels with TPN column left blank.

    I assume the TPN column is the transponder number, but why are they left blank?

    Examples include some of the radio (Audio) channels such as Coffeehouse, New Age and Familliar Favourites.

    Also, no VPID for Mosaic Channel on TPN 7 (Sky HD1, Sky HD2, Musica Y Audio and Noticias.

    TV services with no tpn number for SkyMex include EV 02, Azteca 13-2, mcity action oest and TBS amongst others.

    Please can you also remind me - how do you work out the APID numbers, and what are they for radio channels? they do not appear on the SkyMex spreadsheet. Is it one above the VPID for TV and what is it for radio.

    Thanks again for your help.
