    Is it just me or on some of Dishes HD channels are they using 110 to broadcast HD. I thought they were just using 129... Does anyone know if this change is new?

    Thanks

    The HD orbits have been 110, 129, and 61.5.... after Aug 15, there will be some changing around... not sure EXACTLY where all the HD will end up, but the MPEG2 you're picking up on 110 will be adios....

    Dicovery HD Theater, HDNet, HDNet Movies, HBOHD & Sho HD are on 110 MPEG2 & will still be there after Aug 15.

    The VOOM mpeg2 2 channels on 61.5/129 will be changing to mpeg 4 on Aug 15 & some new HD channels will be added.

    Adding to your post... ESPNHD and TNTHD are also MPEG2 at the 110 location and will still be there after Aug 15th. I think the Dish PPV channel might also be on 110 but I could be wrong about that.

    9420 TNT HD and 9424 ESPN HD are also 110º MPEG2 in the original HD Pak that will still be there after 15-Aug. I'd also assume 9467 HD PPV would remain on 110º MPEG2, as well as 9465 & 9466.

    Those HD channels on 110 have been there since day 1. This is not something new.

    This is not a true statement either. When I originally signed up for Dish HD channels (at that time just Discovery, HDNet, and HDNet Movies I believe) all were on 61.5 for east coast, and 148 for west coast. So I had the wing dish at 61.5 from way back.

    At some point a year or so later, they moved most of the HD (except Demo and maybe something else I can't think of right now) from 61.5 to 110 and I could have taken down the wing dish at that point... but I kept it and once Voom came up I already had a dish pointed at the right spot.

    So... while it is true that there is MPEG2 HD on 110 now and after August 15th with current plans in motion... it is not true that they have been there since day 1.
