    I just got off of the phone with tech support trying to fix my 103 sat error, while I was on the phone the tsr ask if I had just changed my plan. She spent 10 min getting me back to where I can recieve all of the new channels. She said they were having some strang things happen with accounts. She also said not to worry about the 103 error. After all of the lurking and waiting I am not confident that I wont have problems when the bird comes to life.

    On 103b transponder 11, I have no signal on tuner 1, but a signal of 95 on tuner 2 (a little earlier today) . Could that be a bbc problem? Usually on channel 499 I get "searching for signal", but once in a while I get the static screen that says bbc not connected. I also have the Zinwell 6802 multiswitch. I called Directv about the switch and told them about this board saying it had to be a Zinwell WB68. The CSR didn't know, so transferred me to the next level tech. He said that is not quite true. He said the 6802 will work fine also. What do you think? By the way, this is my first post. I really enjoy this site. It is very informative. Thanks for your help.

    The tech is WRONG. Only the WB68 will pass Ka-lo. The 6802 will not. Call back.

    and :welcome_s to DBSTalk.

    Law and Order and Without a Trace are HD, not Stretch-O-Vision. I believe that both shows have been produced in HD from the beginning.

    Why is this in the D10 Tech thread, when it's already a separate thread:

    Law & Order goes waaaay back - I don't think it was HD to begin with.

    Law And Order is shot on film, so it was easy to go back and transfer the earlier seasons to HD.

    Without a Trace possibly, Law and Order no way. I watched one from 2000 the other day that was stretched (Law and Order).

    Good point Venice. The one I watched the other day they must have missed. I have seen others older (98,99) that seemed to be in true HD. But Stretch does not bother me that much.

    Same as 'Judging Amy' and 'X-Files' from Season 5 forward. Actually, 'Law and Order' of course was in SD for several early seasons (shows been on just about forever!), somewhere NBC started doing it in HD (all filmed of course in Panavision) about the same time that Fox changed with X-Files and CBS started doing their top-line shows (like CSI) in Panavision (transmitted in HD) as well.

    So, very few 'series' tv shown by TNT is any form of 'streatchovision' although the early episodes of long running series are. They made the decision to do that rather than what Universal-HD does with 'Northern Exposure', leave in 3x4 mode but in HD, as none of that series was filmed in Panavision.

    Universal, even though it is pillar bared, looks a lot cleaner and sharper than the TNT programs in Stretch-O-Vision.

    D10 is home, nicely (more or less) tucked into place. The last 8 pages or so have been mostly non-tech stuff, so I'm going to temporarily close this thread. When someone has a press release, new TLE with analysis, or testing info, PM any moderator. We'll either post or open the thread for the post and allow more discussion.

    Fair 'nuff? Oh, yeah you'd have to answer me via PM. :)
