    The attachments to this post cover all U.S. DIRECTV Channels and Transponders, CONUS (Continental U.S. or National beams) and LIL (Local Into Local or Spot beams). OTA (Over The Air) data is not provided in this specific data capture.

    Directv-Latin America provides satellite coverage for the Caribbean, Mexico, Central America and South America; Directv-LA data is separate and not included here.

    A single Excel TPN_MAP provides all the CONUS and LIL data for DIRECTV Satellites at the 72.5W, 95W, 99W, 101W, 103W, 110W and 119W positions.

    Three supplemental documents are also provided:

    • A Network-Market-DMA NetworkList cross-reference sheet. This information is particularly useful in understanding the LIL data. The Networklist is updated only when there are changes.

    • A NetworkDecoder map showing the satellites and transponders graphically as they appear on your receiver's signal strength display. The NetworkDecoder is updated only when there are changes.

    • A ChannelCount chart showing the number of CONUS and LIL channels provided by each satellite. The ChannelCount is not updated if changes are only trivial.
    All documents are fully unprotected so you may copy and use the data as you wish.

    Interesting that SW1 is starting to be utilized again.

    How can I obtain a list of all channels that are on, say, transponder 7, satellite 99(c)?

    I have a fairly low signal strength (84) on that particular transponder — among a few others.

    126 - Cinema HD
    218 - Golf Channel HD
    306 - HDNet
    391 - CBS West HD
    501 - HBO East HD


    If you download the TPN_MAP_100728.xls file, you can sort the columns by satellite, then TPN to see any other ones.

    Thanx, bamaweather. I belatedly found Sixto's map (updated 08/02/2010) in Post #2, following a very long first post... SixtoReport: DirecTV National HD Listing/Maps

    It says exactly what you said for 99(c), tp 7 — but with slightly more detail. :)

    Sixto maps KA CONUS daily.
    gct's list has all channels KA and KU, Conus and LIL's.
    bamaweather concentrates on LIL updates, primarily KA.

    That team compliments the entire data set well!:D

    The data in Post #1 has been updated as of 8/4/10.

    The NetworkList and NetworkDecoder docs have not been updated since they have not changed.

    Some quick notes provided by doctor j:
    GolHD active
    FSCHD up in test
    a few new LIL's
