    What about "Testing Network 4?"

    (which are Regional x'pndrs comprising "Beam Norte" if IIRC) ...

    Thanks for these as well ...

    Ever since the loss of our invaluable LA correspondent egakagoc2xi, haven't had much info. from DLA.

    Still puzzled what the XPNDR readings from Beam SUR (Net. 3) are about with you being well north up in Columbia covered only by NORTE (Net. 4).

    Ivanem23,

    Thank you very much for the Signal Strength screen shots. With your receiver in Barranquilla, I too, am at a loss to explain how you are getting such a great signal from Beam Sur. A few months ago, our colleague in Cartagena could not receive anything from Beam Sur.

    If you go to the Beam Footprints for DLA-1, remember they crossed up the beam naming convention: So Beam Norte, Logical Network 4, is labeled as Beam Footprints R3xx. And Beam Sur, Logical Network 3, is labeled as Beam Footprints R4xx. Two engineering departments apparently didn't talk to each other. Yes, very confusing.

    We are working to get an accurate -and regular- data input for DLA once again.

    I've been traveling as crazy....

    But it seems I will be going to Argentina and Colombia by the end of September or mid October...I will get data from DLA.

    I also know I'm in debt with SkyMx Data

    Regards,

    Hey, great to hear from you ...

    And look forward to the DLA updates ...

    Since you've been with Sky Mex. for a long time now, any chance you know specifically how that new dual-stacked 76/79W LNBF for the service operates?

    The only example photos we have of it's installation show it's two outputs connected to the 13/18 + 22KHz tone generating inputs of a DIRECTV SWiM-8 module which is rather nonsensical for how such LNBFs of that type normally operate.

    Hello they sending hot I greet

    I attach photos of the last movements of the network 4 (North) in Directv Latin America

    Thanks for these uploads ...

    As I said, we don't get much news of the lastest from DLA since the loss of our correspondent "egakagoc2xi."

    Strange how the Pan-regional 1 beam now list "17" TPNs, which I guess may explain why the Regional beam Norte is now at only "23" with TPN 88 now reading "N/A."

    Has Norte's regional TPN 88 been reassigned to the Pan-regional 1 group or something?

    While difficult to see in the photo, there appears to be an unlabeled signal level showing in the first slot of a sixth signal level row on the Pan-regional 1 screen, but only for Uruguay.

    The Pan-regional 1 screen for Columbia however doesn't show this, and has only 16 TPNs on the first two of five signal level rows.

    Strange ....

    I wonder if Sur is now at 23 TPNs as well, with one of its TPNs moved to Pan-regional 2 group .

    And of course, unless it's just some kind of spurious response on Norte's screen since Sur use the same frequencies and rely on geographical separation to avoid mutual interference. I still don't understand why you get any signal levels on the Norte screen in Uruguay which is well to the south within Regional beam Sur's footprint.

    Hello good afternoon
    I bring this line up of how they are organized HD Directv LA Colombia, I am a little limited the scan I have made with a very basic software that I facilitate and I teach to use a friend, I leave to see that transponders are using For HD and network distribution in this segment, my decoder is a LHR26 / 100 using LNB (new for DLA1 and 2) wnc 10.95-11.2ghz 11.46-12.2ghz using 60cm antenna
    in the line up missing two channels PPV HD (1402 and 1404) that are not available this day because they are active channels for the MLB Extra Innings, which allows us to understand that regional networks do not have enough space for The channels for this are forced to remove the PPV channels

    That is how they manage them in the US too. It doesn't make sense to devote full time slots to part time sports channels like MLBEI, so they manage the need for such channels by adding/removing PPV slots as required.

    Thanks again for the info ...

    Still I see little to nothing going on yet with the new extended Ku band 10.95 - 11.2 GHz used by regional tps. 77 - 88 for Beam Norte (Net. 4).

    And don't know about Beam Sur (Net. 3) tps. 41 - 52, but would assume pretty much the same level of inactivity.

    But I guess why bother if there is still a lot of capacity on the 11.7 - 11.95 GHz band regional tps. 65 - 76 for Norte and 53 - 64 for Sur?

    Plus any real late subs. who haven't yet converted to the new SF6-LA LNB can still receive virtually all programming with the old SF4-LA. I guess

    Also don't understand the discrepancy between the MPEG2 L14 reading levels on tps. 73, 75, and 80 for Norte.

    And the MPEG 2/4 L26 showing levels on 74 and 79 with zeros for 73, 75, and 80.

    Unless possibly the L14 was in a different location than the L26 when these readings were photographed and therefore each were under a different regional downlink beam for Norte.

    (Reminder Note: According to the FCC docs. both Networks Norte and Sur are comprised of up to 24 regional tps. distributed over two overlapping downlink beams. Pair 1/2 and 3/4 respectively.

    It is something that I him demonstrated to my friend egakagoc2xi, they have Me mad with the behavior of these TPN, Now well from 2014 that I throw the DLA1 we have not had changes or significant advances in the networks, alone up to the arrival of the DLA2 they started reflecting changes in TPN's tables, Case opposite to SKY MEXICO that alone they spent 2 months of the launch of the SKM1 and already they were adding great content of channels HD
