Directv domestic/conus now has tp 13 in the signal meter for 95 west but like tp 9 it shows 0% signal.


tp9 is a phantom - see corresponding channel's notes in gct's tables

He's not referring to a problem, but just noting the status of tps. 9 & 13 on the Galaxy 3C satellite at 95W which among others are used for DIRECTV's "World Direct" international programming and received through a specific dish for this service currently have "0" level at this time.


Sorry - I thought you were talking about 101 West not 95 West. That explains it! :)

TPN 13 on G3C shows up carrying DLA channels on Beam Sur. See the Latin TPN Map.

From the charts it looks like D9S West (101 West) has even numbered tps only, and D8 has all the odd numbered transponders only. Tp 13 and 9 are on D8 unless the frequency is different. What frequencies are tp 9 and 13 on D9S? If they are the same frequency you may have voltage switching issue - but I cannot obviously be sure.


For these kinds of questions, refer to the Network Decoder tab within the Domestic Excel. The details are all there waiting for you - in three colors.

For all the frequency information, there are many, many websites. Perhaps the easiest to work with is www.lyngsat.com. You will gain a great deal of respect for administrator Christian Lyng.

....I notice channels such as Hustler TV (599) on Tp 10 of 101West, and Playboy TV on tp 9 (channel 590) on 101West, has a VPID value of 0. In MPEG2 and MPEG4, this would normally mean there is no video, as it is not possible to have VPIDs and APIDs of 0 if you are watching or listening to something. So is there an error or can you have a VPID of 0 on a channel on DSS format....


This bugged me, and it is an error. The VPID values for those two channels you mentioned, along with FRSH, channel 597, are not 0 as posted. Their VPID values are actually a hex 00E6, in all three cases. Turns out that Excel in its infinite wisdom, takes the liberty of interpreting that 00E6 value as a scientific notation of zero.

And the APID field for these three records: null in every case.

Welcome to the learning curve.

Just to let you know, I am a regular contributor to Lyngsat and very good it is - but please can someone tell me the correct VPID for all the channels listed as 0 rather than 00E6. Do I assume that the VPID is 0 if no audio PID is present so whatever receiver was used can only receive the channel properly if sound is present at the time of the scan?

If there are any channels I have missed with VPID of 0 on the spreadsheet, please can you confirm the correct VPID - is it 00E6 in all cases? Thanks.

Can't grasp your idea of such interest to US provider totally unavailable in UK.:confused:

Sorry I should not have put "no" at the beginning of that. I like to follow television transmission information around the world - there is less info known about DirecTV than most other packages so that is why I was curious.

"I notice channels such as Hustler TV (599) on Tp 10 of 101West, and Playboy TV on tp 9 (channel 590) on 101West"

Then, how is knowing tp/VPID/APID would help you in that (unknown to us) endeavor ? Especially, if you can't see DTV sats.

It was for information purposes. I noticed that virtually every other platform around the world had a lot of info known about it apart from DirecTV (there may be some more) - so your spreadsheet competes the picture.

Appologise if there was a misunderstanding.

I don't see the new spreadsheet. Was going to check to see if D12 transponder 9 & 10 appear.
DirecTV: Genie HR44, H25, CCK, GenioGo, SWiM-16 & SWiM-8, DECA to Gigabit Switch with FiOS (75/75)
FiOS: Roamio Pro's (2), Roamio Plus, Mini's (4) with Ultimate HD (My Roamio Thoughts)
