Part of that 11/29 official announcement is supposed to be that for New users or Existing users who wish to upgrade, Directv will install an LHR24 for HD users and an LH25 for SD users. (Yes, an HD receiver for SD only subscribers.) Along with a Slimline 3?
Sounds to me like they are transitioning to a complete MPEG4 market...
But then how would you guess 110w fits into the picture which is listed on the map as carrying some 26 Ku/MPEG-2 SD channels?
Wouldn't this new rumored "3 lnb dish" really need to be something in between a Slimline-3 and 5 to cover Ka 99 (programming), Ku 101 (for system info., guide data, FW updates, etc.), Ka 103 (programming), and Ku 110 (programming)?
