anyone seen todays uplink report?

Did you miss the last 2 posts in this thread that were made today?

Also if there's something to report it will be posted. While there have been changes almost daily for various reasons, there are days when nothing changed so there's nothing to report.

DISH moved the "regional" coding from channel 125 to 6890 as the channel moved ... but for some reason my program didn't like that. I told it to skip the regional coding change and the process completed.

It is interesting to see DISH inch up on 9000 channels and now jump to 9203.

It looks like DISH will be able to use a Dish for 72.7 and 77 and ignore 61.5.

Moving Western Arc to 8PSK/MPEG2 or 8PSK/MPEG4 is a huge undertaking. The first signs of that won't be in this thread. It will be when DISH makes a concerted push to upgrade millions of non-8PSK receivers. All of the recent mass moves have been on Eastern Arc - not Western Arc. But I'll keep watching and reporting.

Did I read all that wrong or did it not look like they cleared a ton off 72 and moved it to 61?

The Uplink threads here focus more on facts than rumors.

DISH moved a whole bunch of channels from 72 to 61.5 ... then added a whole bunch of those channels on 77. It looks like there are more moves to come. DISH has left a lot of half filled transponders ... at minimum I expect DISH to combine some of the transponders and make the list of national channels on 61.5 and 77 match.

Most of the 61.5 and 77 channels are ones that have HD uplinks on 72.7. But there are more than a handful of channels that are not available in HD that have made the move to 61.5 (with or without the new mirror to 77). If DISH limited the SD on 72.7 to just channels without a HD equivalent it would make a nice single satellite to aim at for everything but locals. Add a local antenna and one could have a complete satellite service from a single LNB. :)

James do you know what happened with channel 6456 KEMO uplinked on January 15th? I really wanted this channel but it has disappeared. Dish network support was not able to help. They are not even aware the channel existed.

It is still uplinked and "Available (Limited)" ... basically still testing. They may be having issues with the signal or are still finishing up a carriage contract. Support won't know about the channel (at least they will not be able to acknowledge the channel) until it is fully available to customers.

Yeah I was wondering what "Limited" meant. They uplinked 6541 KKPX on the same day. This one also says limited but is currently working. So it might be a carriage contract like you said for KEMO.

KKPX lost the "limited" label on Jan 29th.

I started labeling channels with a certain range of auth codes as "limited" because people were confused when they saw "available" on a channel no customer could get. "Not Available" is a single specific auth code that has been placed on test channels for over a decade - with any channel without that code available to someone. DISH can authorize a receiver to receive the special "limited" channels without authorizing the receiver to receive all "not available" channels - which makes the codes perfect for testing new channels. Especially important when there are two "not available" channels on the same channel number - if a receiver is authorized for both channels and both are on satellites the receiver can receive it a guess as to which one the receiver would display. Somewhere someone can watch the KEMO feed without conflict with other channels or seeing other channels DISH is testing.
