    Anyone getting 0s on transponders 1-8 satellite 103ca? I had some pretty bad pixellation on a local channel last night that I am sure was the channel. But in trouble shooting it, I found transponders 1-8 on 103ca showed 0s. Odd. ATT said they don't have anything going on with it. I haven't had any programming or other signal issues. I know as they make system changes and mods they frequently shut down transponders. Just curious if that's the case. Any info anyone has is appreciated.

    On my system, 103ca 1-8 has shown all zeroes for as long as I remember.

    These are new transponders that aren't active yet. Directv needs to move a couple satellites around to light them up, they will probably be 0s for a couple months or so longer until they are ready to activate them. You can disregard those readings for now.

    Yes, ...

    So far it appears the Spanish and int'l channels presently duplicated in A3 format on 99(cr) originally from 119. Will be moved to 103(ca) tps. 1-8 once T15 returns to 103 from 101 after being relieved by the newest satellite "T16" currently still in transit to 101.

    This is all being done mainly to help put the final "nails in the coffin" for any further need of service from 119.

    Awesome info. Thanks for the details. I was tech for about 4 and a half years....left Oct of last year. I knew they were killing the 119, but not much of the details. Needless to say, I feel like I've lost much of what I learned. Thanks again for the info.
