    My install is Thurs. I'm a previous Direct tv customer. Previously my LOS was ok for a 3LNB dish. but due to trees, I think I'll be cutting it close on getting LOS for 119. I posted yesterday thinking I'd not be able to get my locals, but I guess my locals are from another sat (72 ?) If I indeed can't obtain 119, what channels will I lose? Thanks

    you will lose some hd channels and all spanish channels if you need them
    espn 2 HD and HDnet come off 119. Also I believe guide data for all hd channels come off 119

    Equally or more important, much of the guide data for the new mpeg4 HD channels comes from 119 in addition to 101. That is so a receiver that has both tuners locked away from 101 can still get guide updates.

    If you install without a signal to 119, you will need to make certain your receiver/dvr is set to a 101 satellite channel during the wee hours for guide updates.
