These are the markets impacted with changes in the Spaceway TPNs carrying their HD locals.

If these are your home Networks/DMAs, please do a sanity check comparing the TPN data and your signal strength display. There should be a valid correlation of very high signal strength on these TPNs.
If you find a problem, PLEASE speak up!
perhaps add to the list the twelve 'new' D12 spotbeam LiL networks for member's verification ?
Well, on second thought ... perhaps I should take back my suggestion about D12 as a source of the 19.85 GHz twelve transponders, because of its 'uneven' IF = 1,800,670; all D12 IFs has last three KHz numbers as 000, like tp8 1,840,000.
The TPN Map Excel now reflects data of 1/25/12.

That is SO weird...
It's not unusual for WPGA (an SD channel) to show up since Macon, GA is an MPEG4 only market, but...
To my knowledge, WTLF is SD only as well, and already offered in SD on DirecTV 7s.
Perhaps DirecTV is duplicating WTLF on SW1 so they can use the 3 LNB dish instead of the 5 LNB dish in Tallahassee and still allow their subscribers access to all the locals.
Unless WTLF has got an HD cable only feed their supplying to DIRECTV or something.
Other than that, you're right it doesn't really make sense outside of a plan to move WTLF off SD MPEG-2/Ku-band on 119W to SD MPEG-4/Ka-band on 103W for some reason.
Last I heard, The CW is not providing HD yet for CW Plus stations, so unless things have changed, it won't be HD.
I've corresponded, and if memory serves, spoke on the phone with one of the engineers for WTLF, so I may e-mail him and ask him about it.
This is just an update for the OTA section for Rochester, NY #672 - for WROC there is now an 8.2 sub-channel - Bounce TV - not sure if I should report that here, or elsewhere...
There is an entire thread dedicated to OTA discussion. In particular, this post, within that thread http://www.dbstalk.com/showthread.php?p=2953492#post2953492
will (unhappily) answer all your questions....
The TPN Map Excel has been updated and now reflects data of 2/10/12.
Just uploaded our very-best-yet Latin America TPN Map, data is of 2/12/12.
Lots of thanks to some hard working folks!
Two *Test HD LIL Channels Removed:
[table]NET 522|MKT 11|Augusta, GA|CHL 12|*WRDW2
NET 522|MKT 11|Augusta, GA|CHL 26|*WAGT2
The TPN Map Excel has been updated and now reflects data of 2/16/12.
The LIL Market List tab has been updated to reflect the recent announcement of the 2012 Launch of HD Locals for 17 new DMAs.
Great News: TWO NEW HD LIL MKTs are Now in TEST:
NET 560, Vernon, AL; Columbus-Tupelo-West Point, MS has HD LIL's in TEST.
DMA is currently SD Only!
NET 718, Wilmington, NC has HD LIL's in TEST.
DMA is currently SD Only!
One other NEW *TEST HD LIL Channel:
NET 552, Cincinnati, OH
Four *TEST channels have become ACTIVE HD LIL Channels:
593|WXVT|15|1|SW2 @99W|99S|Greenwood-Greenville, MS
610|KFJX|14|18|D11 @99W|99S|Joplin, MO
610|KOAM|7|18|D11 @99W|99S|Joplin, MO
627|WPGA|58|6|SW2 @99W|99S|Macon, GA
Historically, the D5 sat has carried 13 CONUS channels and about 26 LIL channels.
But a significant change came about last week. And this week, D5 shows up carrying only 26 "Addressable Advertisement Push" channels. The channels all show up in the LIL data section, assigned to Network 624 (Los Angeles).
Get prepared. You can expect that you will soon have customized, DMA-specific advertising jammed down your throat. Ultimately, based on the customer demographics they have (or will have) those advertisements may become very very specifically targeted.
D5 is at 110 right? So if you have a SL3, then no ads?
Probably wishfull thinking.
I am guessing that PBS HD will be a mirror feed (virtual) of WMAV from the Memphis market. Also, why is WKDH on 43 and not 45? Not a big deal, I am just ready for the channels to be in HD on the bird. I have survived with OTA.
I notice that they have CW as channel 5, does WCBI provide a HD feed of the CW for cable? I know on OTA it is 4.3 and in SD only.
