Ratings were low so now it's Billy Joel all day every day or so I've been told.

if your xED flag lasts more than three hours consult an uplink specialist. :)

The flag on channel 5857 is 0100083F030200
The other channel with an xED flag is channel 100 HOPVU (flag 0101080000563200FF).

129 TP 21 does not have any known HD feeds (it is the QPSK home of a few PI channels, EPG and DNL channels).


At least the uplink monitor is catching the changes ... whatever they are doing. :D

Interesting. May be dish is finally going to go 8psk modulation on WA. Its about time that dish makes some space there and add more HD channels specially for subs in PR,HI and AK

National SD channels on an 8PSK transponder would be a better sign of that conversion - which I do not expect to happen soon. Millions of non-8PSK receivers are still online and receiving channels and need QPSK transponders to work.

I am seeing guide data missing from my local channels every night from midnight to 5 am. Is this related? I am in the San Francisco market.

If a group of channels are marked as "off the air" at the same time overnight it is usually a hint of a channel move between transponders. But missing data every night sounds like a problem in the EPG data DISH is using or a problem in your receiver.

Agree with James - My 311 was showing "No Info" for every channel in every time slot, I called Dish and they had me unplug the receiver for 10 seconds. After it rebooted, downloaded guide and I'm good to go again.

 

Asked them about replacing the 311 with a VIP222 (same programing) - no change in costs - thinking about it...

James - you mentioned earlier that Dish only has room for 4 more HD channels on WA with the current setup.  Other than putting more SD channels on a single transponder and degrade quality, is there anything that can be done with QPSK to make more space?  Or is Dish really stuck with only room to add 4 more HD channels until the 8PSK transition occurs?

They can put more HD on each transponder. There are a couple of transponders with 10 channels, most of the rest have 9. The four open channels reflect moving to 9 on existing transponders (Western Arc). Going to 10 would provide another 11 channels.

They might be able to do some moving around of SD channels and free up a transponder ... but the last couple SD channels added (beIN Sports, Fuse, Sundance, Pac-12, Fox San Diego) ended up on the All American Direct transponder (before AAD went away). If there was free space I'd expect it to be used before going on a transponder that was "leased to a third party".

Beyond that it would be time for harder choices ... for example moving all the Latino channels to 8PSK and losing any customers who do not convert, or adding channels on Eastern Arc only.

DISH does not seem to be pushing hard to convert to 8PSK ... so I suspect that 10 channels per transponder will be the answer. I hope the older receivers (211, 622) can handle it.

Why wouldn't an older receiver be able to handle 10 channels per transponder?  Wouldn't every single receiver be affected by 10?

sure, they would handle more then that ...

perhaps PQ would drop significantly and current FW/HW will not able to make it looks good enough to avoid complains

The important part is making it good enough to avoid complaints. And while it is just uncertainty on my part when it comes to ViP-211s and ViP-622s being able to process a signal as well as the XiPs - I really do not expect a 2005-2006 receiver to do as well as a 2012 release. One would hope the chipsets would improve year to year.
