I am unable to receive the HD channels on 119 due to leaves blocking the satellite.

However, this morning I flipped by Discovery HD Theater and found that I was receiving that channel. No such luck with HDNet or ESPN2 HD.

What satellite did they move HD Theater to? I know there was discussion about simulcasting them in Mpeg4 when the new satellite is turned on, but I guess they decided to move it before that?

I am in the same position, no LOS to 119. I have my fingers crossed that the other two move to the 110 also.

They have been moving a lot of the HD around, mostly off 101 onto 110 and 119. Gotta get ready for Sunday Ticket which they want to do all from 101 if they can. The channel shuffle happens every year in August.
