    Just wondering if anyone knows if the Tucson locals were recently switched over to the new sat. I just moved to the Denver area and had my movers program install. To my surprise, I had Tucson locals when I got everything done on Monday. I had checked the spot maps and knew there was no way that was going to happen.

    Then Tuesday morning the channel names had changed from TU4 to KVOA, and I had "searching for satelitte". I know Tucson locals had been on the main sat... did this switch just happen (so now I am out of the spot) or did they flip a switch to disconnect me at DirecTV since I am in a new locals area? Note that the channels still show up, there is just no signal.

    Thanks!

    I know Roanoke, Va locals switched to the 119 sat Tuesday night and I think another market did too, but I'm drawing a blank. It's very possible. If you're guide still has info for the Tuscon locals then it is possible the guide data just didn't update and a reset will resolve it. If not the address on your D* acct may not have been changed to your new address.

    If you went from TV4, etc. to the actual call letters, that means Tuscon indeed has moved. I am in the Jackson market and that happened when our locals moved to 7S.

    Yep. Tucson just moved. The only one left at 101 to move to 119 is Louisville.

    What a bummer.... I was so excited to still have the Tucson locals, but it only lasted one day!

    And reports are that the Louisville locals moved today, to transponder 31 at 119.

    Which reminds me, anyone that has any information regarding which transponders that Tucson, Wilkes-Barre, or Roanoke locals have moved, would be greatly appreciated.
