Takes more power to do 8PSK modulation. Plus, the levels are a quality indicator.
Are you saying that for 8PSK transponders, the Dish singal strength screen is actually indicating what in an FTA receiver would be called the "quality" reading, rather than what an FTA receiver calls a "signal" reading ?
So when does HI/AK start getting more HD channels?
Seems to be somewhat that way.
Part One-E11 goes online at 110w....check
Part Two-Dish converts HD at 110w to Mpeg4....due Sept. 17
Part Three-We'll see come Oct.
Mpeg4 on 110, I dont think so, not for a huge while.
Mpeg4 = Eastern Arc (61.5, 72.7, and 77)
Mpeg2 = Western Arc (110, 119, and 129)
Until they change all the old receivers only EA will be Mpeg4
But who knows
HD at 110 is going MPEG4 very soon. Perhaps Sept. 17th as Charles states.
SD at 110 will be MPEG2 for quite some time.
true!!! thanks for the clarification...
Are you getting any HD channels from 61.5?
Yes. Just this weekend changed one of the six footers to get 61.5. I get all 17 premium movie channels that were recently introduced. Plus some Internationals SDs and some of the 9400's that are not included in 110/119. I am not (or have not tried yet to) subscribed to any of the HD national packages available in 61.5. They are not available to PR, although there are some that have been able to get them...
The Turbo HD Banner says 150 HD Channels by the end of the year.
Are they even that many HD Channels exist as of today, and how many channels
will Echostar 11 be able to deliver us?
There are 2 satellites at 61.5 - E3 and E12. Do you get both in PR? Here in St. Croix, we only get E3...
