    can anyone confirm that channel 123 is part of this outage? I buy the BlizzCon PPV every year, and only channel 124 is currently showing video. would suck to have paid $40 and only get the SD feed.

    I record it, and have it setup to record on channel 123, would also suck to record about 20 hours of a DirecTV logo.

    My 220HD just came back on but it is showing the Comedy Central logo in the lower right hand of the screen.
    Supposed to be Nascar practicing.

    Certain channels (219, 220) are still jacked up on the app. It won't launch the channel to view.

    Now CNNHD is on channel 218 that the (old) guide data says is the Golf Channel, and 202 is carrying the Golf channel. They have swapped the content of the transponders, without being able to update the Guide data.

    Some channels mapped wrong. For example CNN on 218.

    Maybe somebody at D* HQ could figure out how to "create a restore point" and then maybe do a "system restore". Bet the Comcast ad agency is working OT this weekend.

    in layman's terms?

    It seems to be an "aha" moment but what exactly does it mean?

    I was wondering that very thing. We are - that I know of - 9hrs into the guide issue and apparently 2 days into the CNN/Fox issue. You'd think there would be something that could be rolled back to.

    They have swapped four pairs of channels to new transponder locations on the satellites. But there is a problem in the guide data transmitted to your receiver to tell it about those changes.

    how does swapping the channels make them work, or are they just going to keep the swapped channels dark?

    Maybe swapping the channels causes a guide update. Except its not working.

    What did you see to make you think they tried something a few days ago and backed out? And now again today?

    Temporary fix for more popular channels maybe.

    Seems it's a ground issue at least and not d10 again.

    And the guide data thing has probably been happening for a lot longer than we noticed. Maybe 3am or earlier pst.

    I noticed some strange stuff when trying to tune in channels on either Tuesday or Wednesday, specifically with SpikeTv. When I clicked on it in the guide it brought up another channel (don't remember which channel) but it did that for like 5 min and then It tuned to spike finally. Also been getting a lot of Black guides with no channels the past few days. They have certainly been working on something.
