They told me the same thing yesterday but I convinced them to change my grandfathered package without locals to the smae grandfathered package with locals and they came on fine with no problems. You might give it a shot.


Mine were finally turned on today after
another call. They were supposed to be
turned on yesterday but any rate finally they're on.

I haven't seen anything on Binghamton, NY yet, but 8 more markets will be getting DNS feeds on 6/30. :)

My DMA is now listed as October 2010. (Salisbury, MD) We are a short market. Where/what is the uplink reports for the markets generated. Other than this board, how can I find an uplink report for the Salisbury, MD DMA, when it becomes available?


I would suggest following these threads:

DIRECTV Transponder Map: New Data 6/30/2010

Every so often, the thread is closed and a new one is opened.

Salisbury, MD is not currently uplinked... at least not as of June 30th.

I called and got my locals turned on today for Lake Charles DMA and they are replacing my 2 R10's and 1 D10 with 2 HD DVR's and one HD for $0.00


My account lists swap replace HR20 and swap replace Directv HD rec
Has anyone else had receivers replaced for MPG4 only locals and seen this



I received 2 HR20-700's and 1 H20-100 without bbc's today CS says they cannot send bbc's until the receivers are activated


I now get all the network feeds in HD in the 390 channel range plus the previously listed channels in the 60's range


So, if I call and ask for locals in the Lake Charles DMA, I will be able to receive ABC NY and CBS NY?
