There is no technical reason to hold off nationals. Unless they are short on MPEG4 HD encoders. :D


What about those of us who only see 119, 110 and 61.5, maybe that is impacting nationals? Don't know, just a thought.

Space at 61.5 could have an effect (I have not looked to see how much is empty after the last moves there). Any HD added to 110 would have to be added to 72.7 or 77. But there is a large range of "temp" HD channels that are assigned east and west. I believe there is enough space for the channels expected, if not for more.

<------ Faints at the sight of Las Vegas HD locals!

Could Dish please turn them ON before too long, I want Survivor and the rest of my network shows back in HD. It's been four months since we moved and lost our OTA.

It is interesting that a couple of weeks ago or so the uplink activity had my HD locals up on 129 but unavailable. So who knows, maybe I'll end up needing to see 129 anyhow.

Ditto; they uplinked my local HD to new Ciel2 a few weeks ago, but never made them available yet. I hope they do so I can ditch my 61.5 wing dish and go pure western arc.
