DIRECTV TRANSPONDER MAP
Satellites at 95W, 99W, 101W, 103W, 110W and 119W are included
Effective December 17, 2012, Puerto Rico began transitioning from Directv Latin America (DLA), to Directv US Domestic resources. The new Puerto Rico Service is administered as if it were a US DMA; see Network 724 or Market 213, in the LIL tab of the Excel for complete details.
1. TPN_MAP Domestic the First Excel attachment to this post, presents all US DIRECTV Channels and Transponders, CONUS (Continental US or wide/National beams) and LIL (Local-Into-Local or narrow/Spot beams). As noted above, the LIL TPN Map now includes Puerto Rico as a pseudo DMA.
There are eight tabs at the bottom of the Domestic Excel page
CONUS all CONUS channels, grouping first MPEG4 then MPEG2 channels in channel number sequence. MPEG4 channels are shaded blue
LIL all Local-Into-Local channels are listed in DMA Market Name sequence, grouping first MPEG4 then MPEG2 channels in channel number sequence. Blue shading identifies channels using MPEG4 compression; these are typically HD channels. However, a small number of SD and Audio-Only channels do use MPEG4 compression. Un-shaded records indicate channels using MPEG2 compression; these are SD only.
OTA the Directv supported database of Over-The-Air channels listed by DMA Market Name then in channel number sequence
HYBRID the Hybrid grouping includes Video-On-Demand channels, Interactive TV channels, Test channels and Offline channels. Each grouping is listed in channel number sequence. A large number of part-time channels, seasonal channels, RSN Alternate channels and ‘Game-Only’ sports channels can be found in this ‘Hybrid’ tab of the Excel since these channels are often in an “Offline” or inactive state at the time of day when the TPN MAP is assembled.
LIL MARKET LIST Local Market or Designated Marketing Area (DMA) database with status and reference information
CHANNEL COUNT a periodic snapshot of channels provided per satellite
NETWORK DECODER correlates satellites and their transponders graphically to explain the receiver's signal strength presentation
TUTORIAL a procedure to acquire channel information and signal strength using interactive IP (SHEF) commands with your receiver
Additional insight for US Domestic channels is available regarding:
OTA (Over The Air) information and discussion in this DBSTalk thread
DNS (Distant Network Service) information and discussion in this DBSTalk thread
LIL (Local-Into-Local) information and discussion in this DBSTalk thread
2. TPN_MAP DLA_Panamericana is the First Division of DLA (Directv Latin America). This Excel presents all Channels and Transponders provided by the "Panamericana" Division. Panamericana includes Argentina, Chile, Colombia, Ecuador, Peru, Uruguay and Venezuela. Puerto Rico and some El Caribe locations are now transitioning from Panamericana to US Domestic resources.
There are seven tabs at the bottom of the Panamericana Excel page
BEAM OESTE all channels in Network 0 in channel number sequence
BEAM SUR all channels in Network 1 in channel number sequence
BEAM PR all channels in Network 2 in channel number sequence
OTA the Directv supported database of Over-The-Air channels grouped in Regional Market Name, then channel number sequence
HYBRID all Hybrid channels, in channel number sequence
NETWORK LIST Satellite Beam and OTA Network Numbers
LA NETWORK DECODER correlates satellites and their transponders graphically to explain the receiver's signal strength presentation
3. TPN_MAP DLA_SkyMex is the Second DLA Division. A fledgling Excel attachment presents DLA SKY-Mexico Channels and Transponders. There is much detail to be added, but little interest has been shown, limited certainly by our English-only presentation. The SKY data is very stale, last updated 10/6/2012.
4. TPN_MAP DLA_Brazil is the Third DLA Division but is not yet presented here.
