Not everything is EA/WA.

Would be interesting to split the total [8565] number between WA and EA in the reports ...

While it may be trivial, it probably wouldn't be all that interesting.

Trivial is do nothing. And become boring to lay low.

Trivial is do nothing. And become boring to lay low.

If you're bored you can provide an occasional count.

As for the number ... it is trivial to show the number of records in the "new" live database after converting it from the binary download. Each record represents a channel, although there are 'channels' that are never transmitted along with the duplicates - known and unknown. (Perhaps I should show it as "8565 Records" but I've ended the public reports with a "channel" count for nearly two years - there is no reason to change now.)

I've got the process down to where changes are posted to my website before they are visible on my receivers. (Yes, I have literally read about a channel change on the Uplink Activity report and had to wait several minutes for my receivers to process the change.) In the past two years the source data has increased in size by 48% while the record (channel) count has only increased 21%.

I do not have the live database broken down by satellite. My live database is sorted by service ID (channel number) then transponder. Running through the database to create the "by satellite" and other charts that are posted each morning on my website takes a few minutes. Time that I'd rather not add to every uplink report.

If a "by arc" count could be added to uplink reports without slowing down the process of noting changes it might be worth the change, but the main point of the Uplink Activity report is to keep up with the changes.

A quick count ...

8565 channels in current system.
4405 on Western Arc, 2132 on Eastern Arc (423 on 118, 18 elsewhere) including mirrors
plus 1267 OTA EPG channels (14000-15999)
plus 103 internal test channels and 217 other internal channels (> 9999).
Includes 291 'unavailable' channels (138 Western, 128 Eastern, 25 other).

Thanks for the tear-down.
I'm curious - wouldn't be using channels and services clear for readers ? Because the counts mixing them now.
Some other thoughts:
- 148W sat's records should be 'phantom' and should be totally excluded from all counts (it's just binary pieces in system tables - no sat and no one receiver would use these)
- 121W still transmitting - I think that "18 elsewhere" mean that;
- the ratio 2:1 between arcs - if there are more services then channels, but number of real channels is close?

"Every record is a channel" is something that has gone on longer than I have done the reporting. Channels greater than 9999 have been pulled out of the main WA vs EA count along with a few other internal channels. I could probably do a count by channel type that would separate out the channels more.

The "18 elsewhere" includes 121 and 148. They are records in the database so they are in the gross "count".

"4405 on Western Arc, 2132 on Eastern Arc" ... There are several issues inflating the channel count on Western Arc ... first, there are more channels there than on Eastern Arc. More locals on spotbeams, more HD on spotbeams for AK/HI/PR, more mirrored channels for PR packages. The OTA EPG channels are excluded (counted separately and not tied to an arc) so I believe the 4405 vs 2132 channel count is correct. Or at least close.

Western Arc: 1454 ConUS, 2951 spotbeam.
Eastern Arc: 1542 ConUS, 590 spotbeam.

KTSF2? What is that?


14020 KTSF2 SAN FRANCISCO, CA removed from 110° 31s43 (North California) (OTA EPG Data)

It WAS a channel that provided an EPG for people who received KTSF over the air. The 14000-15999 channels are not real channels that one can watch via satellite ... they are simply placemarkers. It is used as part of DISH's way of providing an EPG for a locally received channel (in this case, KTSF's 26-02.)

I contacted the engineer for these sister stations in Charlotte, NC in early March questioning whether Dish Network was going to add these two in HD. The engineer said that a contract had been signed and effective March 28th the channels would be available in HD. After they weren't, I contacted the engineer back and said it had been rescheduled for April 25th. The engineer said today that undoubtedly there is some type of technical problem with Dish Network. Can someone please tell me when these channels will be airing in HD on Dish? I have contacted customer service and they have no clue.

Thanks!!

We have no clue for you. Continue pestering that station's engineer - seems to me his in the loop.

I wish there were movement on that front here in Raleigh. I watch some CW programming and have troubles at times getting those OTA channels so it would be nice to pick them up.

I'm sure it is a pass-the-buck situation where if you called Dish they would say the local engineer is the hold-up... so patience is probably the best virtue.
