New HD Channel 1522  in *TEST at last post turned out to be a channel with the first two seasons of Game Of Thrones.

 

Other minor changes had to do with DOD Push Channels.

Nothing new again today.
Wish I could open one of my weekly boxes and find some kind of shiny new surprise   :((

Another, no change week.
Lots of minor verbiage changes in Notes,  but nothing that looked significant to me.

no sign of new networks in anticipation of D14 usage ...

Should we really expect any eminent signs of upcoming new networks for D14?

 

Since it is destined for 99W with Ka spot and CONUS transponders wouldn't it logically fall under the existing networks 10 and 11?

 

(And perhaps now show number 10 for a new "99cb" and perhaps a number "110" for a new "99ca" in the string under the receiver diagnostics screen menu if Gary is correct about the meaning for the number 150 in the current string).

I'm not convinced - I wrote a couple times: nothing new in SI aka NIT about the 100+ numbers

I know you're not, which is why I added the parenthesis around that portion of my post;

 

The main point of my post was the question about shouldn't the future D14 fall under the present networks 10 and 11?

My personal expectation is that D14 will fall in line with the existing architecture, data layouts and conventions.  When the dust finally settles, I foresee the Networks at 99W configured much like their siblings at 103W.

 

Given some free time, I will assemble a "Projected Network Decoder" sheet, with D14 included and post it up here.  That will give all a chance to laugh with me - or laugh at me - as the new D14 unfolds.

the problem is if D14 will add new tpns what would require to have own new IDs, for existing nets there not too many left for that ...

Is there any reason they'd make any changes until D14 actually launches? Did they start making such changes well in advance of the launch of D12 or D11?

I think it happened when they finish in orbit testing, or right after that

It would seem logical for D14's CONUS transponder ID range numbering to be the same or similar to what D12 uses at 103w.

 

However, I'm not sure what TPN ID range DIRECTV engineers may intend for D14's spotbeam tps. For while I naturally expect D14's spots to replace those of SW2 (plus add two additional ones) for transponders 1-8 on the 99s screen. I don't expect them to use the same TPN ID numbering range and scheme currently used by the Spaceways.

Look forward to it.

 

Should be fun ... :)

Network Decoder:  D14 Crystal-Ball-Version

 

Attached is a fully UN-substantiated vision of the Directv Network and TPN Configuration as it might appear with the inclusion of D14.

 

I have gone full circle a few times; but have come back to a view that is not terribly inspired and shows the new 99W configuration as a sort of mirror image of 103W.  The D14 Schedule-S clearly lays out the transponder scheme for D14 and that drives this view of the D14 meld into the overall architecture.

 

I must admit I have failed miserably in an effort to map out the overall transponder frequencies.  We clearly do not have complete data and I suspect that many parts of our historical data are not correct.

 

Again, the D14 information here is pure conjecture on my part.  I have found no secret information.  In a few months we will know if this post is prophetically accurate -- or embarrassingly wrong.

I haven't seen any information about D14 having any Ka-lo capability, so I would expect it would have Ka-hi spots only.

Correct;

 

D14's spotbeam tpns. are all Ka-hi 1-8.

 

Therefore, if we assume D14's spots will immediately or eventually replace those of SW2 as well as two additional ones, 99(s) should have the cells representing tpns. 1-8 colored in blue from D14 and cells 15-24 blue for D11's spots.

 

Otherwise a good speculation of the future Network Decoder when D14 is operational from what I can see.

I guess at that point SW2 is out of a job, and becomes an in-orbit spare?
