Hi Sixto, did you notice that DTV eliminated a few days ago the 671-1 HD sub-channel for FSN Midwest and now returned it to the 671 full-time HD slot ?... I think this is good news for those of us who feared they were going to convert FSN Midwest into a part-time HD channel (although they never did at 671-1).....

Also, now we get the HD version automatically when we press 671 as opposed to having to manually enter 671-1 each time we wanted to see FSN-MW in HD... Nice surprise this week !

The chart in post 1 shows that change. :confused: I think he noticed. :)

Hmmm.

Can't say I've noticed any change with 671.

It's been 671 full-time for a long time.

You're saying that recently it switched to 671-1 temporarily?

FSN-Midwest HD was switched (from 671) to 671-1 months ago (last fall 2009)..... Sixto never updated his DirecTV HD Channels List (to reflect this change) because he told an earlier poster (months ago) that he wasn't sure if this was a permanent DTV move or not...

He speculated that perhaps DTV might be converting FSN-MW- HD back to a part-time HD channel but he wasn't sure... As long as 671-1 kept mirroring 671 (full-time and not as an HD part-time sub-channel) ) he was going to keep it as HD on 671 (on his List) , and not change it to 671-1.....Now, this week, DTV returned the HD channel to where it had been located until last fall 2009 (671) and eliminated 671-1 (which had been its HD home since last fall) ... We also now, once again, get the HD channel automatically on the remote without having to manually look for and press 671-1 if we wished to see the HD version...

Hope this clarifies any confusion... Thanks !

You remember much better then I. :)

Yep, looks like the full time status never changed, just the channel number without the -1, then with the -1 and then not again, all along showing in the daily check as full-time. (btw, I don't check the -1 or not in the guide data, don't know how).

Not yet sure where 408 HD is, I only look at D10/D11.

Being that Telefutura is only part of the Spanish packages, I would venture a guess that its MPEG4 off 110 or 119.

That's my guess as well, thinking 110.

Sixto, any idea why they didn't remove the old HD Extra channel numbers? They removed all the old premiums a week after adding the new ones.

110 would be my guess also since you need 119 for the spanish package and Telefutura so they'd probably have a phase III dish already. Plus they needed to get something on 110 so the FCC wouldn't want the licenses back due to non usage.

See post My Setup for configuration info.

With only a 99/101/103 LNB I am not seeing it in the guide, so you must be correct.

Confirmed from doctor j (thanks!).

Telefutura HD is on 119/Transponder 23. And there's a bunch of other TEST channels there as well.
