I am watching channel 311 Max W.

It is actually HBO W. #303 programing.

Weird but true.

I do not subscribe to HBO

Same here. Guide for Max-wHD shows "Be kind rewind", but i am watching "Meet the parents", which is what the guide for HBO-w has.
Not sure if i am getting HBO-wHD, or if the max info is wrong.
Will have to see if a logo comes on screen.

Not at home, so I can't check myself. But is this SD or HD (or both)? If HD, from 61.5 or 129?

Ciel-2 just got to 129, and with a different TP arraignment, some things may get messed up in the shuffle as they get ready to make the switch. At least that's the only good theory I've got.

Not reported, no big deal just interesting.

Just checked and SD max on #311 is correct according to program guide, sat #119, transponder#17

Screw up on HD only sat #61.5 transponder #16

I wonder if this might be related to the channel content switching issues I been noticing? I’ve now had several instances of HBO (HD-300) momentarily switching to HBO2E’s (HD-301) content. Usually it lasts less than a second then switches back. I was just chalking it up to yet another weirdness in the L6.16 release but maybe there’s a little more to it than that… :confused:


One ViP622 - One ViP722K - DPP-44 - Three Dish500s: #1 (110°/119° - Twin), #2 (61.5° - Dual), #3 (129° - Dual)

At about 12:45pm it was straight again as i walked in the room and the end of "Be kind rewind" was on like it should have been.
I dont get 61.5 so mine was Max-wHD on Sat 129
