Hmmm. Could D10 be slowly dying?

They announced an issue with the D10 propulsion system. It's now running on a backup. The question is if something has changed, or is this all just a coincidence.

Maybe not their ability, but certainly their prudence in doing so.

If this is due to problems with the bird yes.

Been posting in the gct thread, but I'm starting to think that something is going on with D10.

I don't have the redirection flag fix in place yet, so thus been looking more at the spreadsheet and D10 certainly looks to be getting emptied, unless the data is not all there.


I usually just collect data, but sometimes I dabble in trying to interpret.
Here is an interesting table from the CONUS HD Data. (note: D11 has 77 entries , but 4 entries for Audience so only 74 distinct VPID's.

Yep, saw that. It was transponders 1-9 that were the most interesting.

It just seems like they're moving everything important off D10.

So DJ, the spreadsheet is correct? and they've really moved all the big time HD off?

Very interesting.

It could be for lots of reasons, but man it sure does look like there's something going on with D10.

With all of the channel movement lately, decided to take some time and modify the tool to start tracking total D10/D11/D12 HD counts daily, for comparison purposes.

Just finished the modifications, and did notice that a number of the Cinema HD channels that disappeared over the years, that were needed for space, are all back now, so I've updated the totals for Cinema HD from 30 to 37. I also lowered the network number by 1 because I hadn't removed GolTV. I still need to update the channel listing itself, but will do that later in the week, in case I decide to actually figure out which day they were each added back in.

Now whenever posting the daily comparison there will be a new line at the top such as:

Full-Time HD for 2012-10-22 is 187        Full-Time HD for 2012-10-19 was 187
It was easy for new Cinema HD to slip in unnoticed because I'm mostly just looking for "new" channels, and the Cinema HD channels come and go for part-time needs, so if an extra one comes back it's easy to not notice.

Well, no more, now tracking the total count daily.

Also, not worried about D10 any more, there's just re-balancing going on.

Some cleanup.

But now that they're moving channels almost daily I really need to get to the bottom of this, because gct's latest spreadsheet which has the redirection fix in place, shows almost everything important now off of D10.

Is D10 the 103 ca? Cause in the past few weeks I noticed TP 10 keeps getting a lower signal,(was 91) now 81 but TP 9 is at 97. But several others are in the 80's as well So it wouldn't be alinement, correct?
103 cb is all 90's across the board.

No, D10 is "103cb," for its CONUS beam transponders numbered 1-14.

"103ca" is D12's CONUS beam transponders numbered 9-24

Really no changes.

I'll post what's there's been but it's minimal. I check every day.

Okey-dokey. I seem to recall seeing you posting in home generator threads, so I was curious if Sandy-fallout was a contributor. But certainly it is traditionally a quiet time of year anyway. Thanks for the clarification.

I am sure you are probably aware Sixto, but your tables are not working properly with the new forum software. This includes the previous HD channel polls conducted, D* National HD Channel Change Info, Transponder Maps, etc.

I wonder if you could possibly modify the code some until the tables option are added to the forum software.
