Nobody here knows, but considering it was in testing for like two years, and DirecTV removed it in May, I wouldn't be holding my breath for it being added anytime soon.

 

Sorry!  I'm waiting on my affiliate of The CW to go HD on DirecTV as well...  :(

Interestingly enough;

 

The last TPN map release for 9/10 shows WTLF HD back up in test again. On the same satellite and transponder listed before.

Nielsen Ratings Update

 

The 'Market' tab in this week's TPN Map Excel (9/17/14) incorporates the 2014-2015 Nielsen DMA ratings which were released on 9/12/14.  Each year there are winners moving up in the DMA rankings - and of course the loser DMAs, dropping in the relative rankings.

 

This is a great macro view of the shifting demographics within the United States.

 

The 'Market' tab also reflects the new Charlottesville, VA, HD-LIL DMA added since last week.  The recap numbers at the bottom of the Market tab now show Directv HD Local service is provided to 99.54% of US TV Households.

Hey Gary;

 

Are you and egakagoc2xi making any progress at sorting out the confusing situation going on with DIRECTV LA?

 

The new transponders popping up and mislabeled signal level screens posted recently by an Uruguay technician down there appearing as DIRECTV test new receiver firmware in preparation for DLA-1's launch is really making a confusing mess of the network decoders in previous LA TPN maps.

HoTat2,

 

I have been traveling for the past week - just got back today.  It will take me a little time to dig my way up to the surface of my desk...

 

However -- on the DLA-1 front, I think we will be okay.  egakagoc2xi (henceforth to be nicknamed 'ega') has all the data, which includes former Networks 0, 1 and 2 - but now with Pan Networks 3 and 4 added from DLA-1.  As I recall, DLA-1 also has augmented the  Network 1 (Beam Sur) TPN array.  I expect there will be up to four additional Regional Networks that will soon be making an appearance too.

 

We also have the necessary data from the DLA-1 Schedule S; I expect it will all logically come together.  As quickly as we can, we will work through it and post what seems to make sense.

 

One last note - look at the current "Network Decoder" tab for the Latin TPN Map -  the Receiver Display numbering has always seemed 'a mess' to me.  But we have just posted what the LA units present.  Net 1 for instance displays TPNs labeled 13-20 and then 21-24.  Oh well.

Thanks Alan.  This really sucks. There are several shows both new and old that I'd like to watch on CW but refuse to watch in SD.

 

And now after my recent Genie upgrade, I don't know how or why but the installer changed my dish LNB and setup so now I don't even see my local CW channel 24 in the guide anymore. Guess I'll call D* back and bug them about it some more.  :nono2:

On the 9/17 TPN Map, WTLF is still in *TEST status.  That is a very good sign.

Updated LATIN TPN Map

 

An updated Latin TPN Map has just been posted. 

 

For the first time, we have references to Networks 3 and 4, Networks expected to be provided by the soon-to-launch DLA-1.

 

This weeks TPN Map has -two- Network Decoder tabs, so I could provide you both the current and a new Network Decoder view.   We have some system data which has enabled us to assemble a 'forthcoming' Network Decoder with the inclusion of DLA-1.  Note too that Network 2, (Beam PR) has been 'robbed' of all but one TPN in the new layout.

 

An additional 4 Regional Networks are expected but have not yet appeared in the data.
