    No there isn’t anything newer. Probably a test channel

    On my screen tere are 2 channels with 401.
    First 1 is 401Aqui
    Second one is 401INFO
    Choose all channels for the guide instead of a favorite and see if it works.

    This is very odd for a couple of reasons ...

    First that INFO channel should actually be on ch. 400, not 401.

    And second, it should only be visible in the guide to SD only receivers that can see the 119W satellite.

    As it's a message telling viewers they need to upgrade their SD receivers to HD capable ones and Slimline dishes (if necessary) to continue to receive Spanish programming. Since the former 119W feeds for them have been discontinued.

    There's also a similar INFO channel on ch. 2019 that only SD receivers should see for those that subscribe to the Chinese Direct package, which feeds were also on 119W and have now been turned off as well.

    I’m getting the same thing as jimmie57 when I just now checked my HR54- two channel 401’s and as he described. And I’m only running the 3lnb rb and not my legacy 5lnb anymore. My HR24’s still working normal as posted above. Looks like the ATT engineers are hard at it again. :(

    sorry guys, kicking tires and changing windshield will not fix the engine :D

    FW and smart card's access DB are the two parts of the engine.

    Correction, after checking on Edgecutter this morning a new INFO channel on 401 is actually correct along with the addition of many other such INFO channels.

    But again, should only be seen by SD receivers that had access to 119W to formerly receive Spanish programming from there.

    Nah, unfortunately I haven't found a way ...

    I periodically check, but the tapatalk search engine can never bring up anything for the "iamanedgecutter forum" ...
