For the billionth time, that's not what was said. :rolleyes:
If you stop responding to them or put them on ignore, then eventually they'll go away.

This isn't that kind of thread.

I haven't been following this thread since I don't really care about channel counts, but I clicked on this thread by accident and noticed TWO big mistakes right off, and found another one shortly thereafter.

The HD-DNS section has DirecTV carrying CW East (WDCW) and CW West (XETV) in HD. While I believe those channels are both available to subscribers in their respective local markets, DirecTV only offers SD feeds of them via DNS. The two are among two of my most wanted HD channels from DirecTV, so I wish it were true...

Upon closer inspection, I also noticed that you have PBS listed as an HD-DNS option from DirecTV. This is incorrect as well. DirecTV currently only offers PBS DNS in SD...

So, though they might not count in the overall totals, there are 8 HD-DNS feeds on DirecTV instead of the listed 11.

Also, you list the HD-DNS feeds as "HD Cable Networks". It might be a little less confusing if they were labeled "HD DNS Feeds" or something...

A couple of hours early ... but --

DirecTV adds:
505 HBO 2 (West)
520 Cinemax 5 Star
521 W Max
523 @ Max

(and ESPN 3D goes full time)

New PDF chart attached. Adjustments have been made for the PPV channels taken off the air for May and July adds.

James, your chart still has 505, 520, 521 and 523 in red for DirecTV. You might also want to change ESPN 3D to green from yellow since it's also full time now.

See post My Setup for configuration info.

Also DISH renamed the Encore channels today (I thought that was coming Monday?). They only renamed the SDs ...

344 EMYST Encore Mysteries renamed ESUSP Encore Suspense
347 EWAM Encore WAM renamed EFAM Encore Family

Has DirecTV done the rename yet?

Another addition for the next update-Bloomberg HD. Neither satellite company carries it at this time.
