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. 

Yep, certainly noticed!

 

I need to spend some time and decide what to do.

 

If they'll never be tables again, then I need to switch to some other formating.

 

For the daily check, I had the tool generating the vB code to look nice, now I need to decide what to do.

 

It's not clear to me if tables are coming back, and is there some other way to do tables in IPB.

sixto, on yesterday's changes, you said: "Start of US Open". But there are quite a few channels added in the 9000s with a *, indicating a test channel - so isn't there more that has been added, in addition to the open?

Hi. Good question. Those 9xxx channels are always associated with the 7xx channels in some way. They are always added at the same time, and removed at the same time, not sure why but they're always there.

Sixto noted 4 more test channels today.

 

Any chance some of these are for Premier League Extra Time, the NBCU channels which will carry overflow Barclays Premier League football?

 

The season begins in 4 weeks.

I see they went through with renumbering those hd extra pack channels.  

 

I noticed a few 1070's in your listing.  Are they doing 7 HD's on those transponders (1010 through 1070) ?

you could find the info (full list of sat/tpn with seven channels) in Gary Toma's Excel tables; easy to dissect by loading it into Excel

According to the latest TPN maps;

D12 CONUS transponder 17 has 7 national HD channels at present.

 

ShWmHD 552  17  D12   1010

STZKHD  525   17  D12   1020

AMAXHD  519  17  D12   1030

SHNXHD  551   17  D12   1040

MGMHD   567   17  D12   1050

TMAXHD  522   17  D12   1060

HBOZHD  509   17  D12   1070

 

The rest of the mux. groups with a 1070 VPID listing either have an MPEG-4 SD channel for the 7th one. Or skip over VPID #1060.

DIRECTV sub. since Sep. of '95

Wow, now that's an efficient use of bandwidth.  Don't notice anything wrong with the picture on D12 tp 17.

 

And thanks Sixto.  Looks like the 6th channel is NASA in your example, which we know is in MPEG4 SD.

 

I'm familor with Gary Toma's spreadsheet.  I haven't downloaded a recent copy in a few months.  I like to sort it by Sat, TP, then VPID.  Easier to see it in order that way.

Too bad that they wouldn't add the HD Nasa Feeds, so we could actually see the beauty of this planet, from space.
