    That's DirecTV-5, correct? Someone needs to update Wikipedia, it says 5 is at 72.5, not 110. And we know gct's data trumps Wikipedia.

    I wish that they'd swap those 3 transponders with Dishnet, for 3 at 119w.

    I do not think that would be a good idea. DirecTV is using 110 for Puerto Rico, and 119 is too low on the horizon for Puerto Rico or most of the US East Coast. I could never get a good signal from 119 in North Carolina. Trees three houses away from mine were still in the way.

    I'm sure the 110 has to be maintained by DirecTV unless they rewrite all their receiver software as most receivers check all satellite signals during a reboot that they are configured for.

    I'd think they could remove it in a software update for systems using the 5lnb.

    Or a Phase III dish like mine!!

    But not until they eliminate all the MPG program guide legacy receivers that can't receive software updates...and there are still millions of them in service!

    Nope.
    Receiver's FW built different way: first it will obtain sort of "NIT" as other DVB-S standard require; then the NIT will tell all info about sats/tpns/nets.
    Ask gct, he will lecture you about PID [aka SCID] 0x0800 for legacy [Ku] receivers and 0x0802 for latest [Ku/Ka] models.

    Finally got rid of my H10's a year ago.
    When I added HR20's, got and kept a Slimline 5LNB (rather than get a SL 3LNB) because I needed to maintain 110° reception.
    Had Ku Mpeg2 HDDNS on 90-99 (as well as HBOE, SHOE, ESPN, and 4 or 5 others in HD) on the H10's, and DTV still supplied those for about two years after I added the HR's with Ka Mpeg4 HDDNS on 390-399's.
    The H10's originally were my primary receivers, but eventually were relegated to provide PIP as (secondary) receivers on sets with HR's.
    During that time, the H10's were getting updates (automatically and forced).
    After that, they wouldn't update, auto or forced, and never had the latest update.
    Every couple of months, I would try, it would identify the new update, but the download would lock and never complete.

    HD on the H10's from 110° went away, and so did the reason for keeping them...

    At this time, D5 @110W is providing about 27 MPEG2 Standard Def channels via spot beams to the Puerto Rico market. D5 also provides the APG data for Puerto Rico.

    The bulk of the Puerto Rico service is a product of SW1 and SW2 providing MPEG4 SD, HD and audio channels.
