    30 more days! noooooooooooooooooooooo...........

    Oh well i guess something went wrong and they have to tweak it or something.....what would be the cause of this? I'd assume they'd only test basics and then move it to 103 and once there really fine tune everything.
    Only thing I could think of is if they find something major wrong with it at its current place then they wont risk the move of it to near the other sat's and have to rush another up?.....

    All speculation at this point.

    May be fine, and still late-April, or not.

    Time will tell.

    Yeah 30 more days of testing at 76 doesn't sound that great. I would feel better if it said something more like "up to 30 more days". Between this 30 day extension, and the 20 day drift we are now looking at early May before it would even be parked :(

    The "ensure it's fully functional" statement in the filing is not exactly confidence boosting.

    Of Course! Oh well Moving on. I guess thats what happens when everyone is so eagerly anticipating this so much. It's kind of like when you get hungry and your anticipating dinner and something happens and it's delayed, so you move from hungry to iritated and then it takes longer and now you go from being iritated to getting a headache and weary! Eventually the next step is you completely loose your appetite. I just wish they could cough up some PPVHD Channels and use the space for some channels ( A Snack) to hold us over until Dinner arrives.....Just Sayin

    So worst case scenerio is they found something major wrong and want to make sure they can't fix it before risking the move to near the other sat's. And if unable to fix it id assume we'd be just outa luck for an extremely long time as what ive read there is no backup on the ground currently.

    Best case scenerio is they just couldn't get the drift started in time and filed this, but one would think the wording would say "...up to 30 days."

    I just hope they don't play the HD-Light as they did in 2005/2006. I prefer to wait instead of any picture compressing.

    Well the S2797 deals with the KA part of the satellite. I just hope nothing is wrong with the satellite and they just didn't have enough time to do all the KA testing they wanted to since they were busy doing the BSS stuff (S2796). We'll find out soon enough I guess.

    We shouldn't panic just yet. Anticipation will give you an ulcer, but these kind of things happen - (delays, etc.) I think we will get more news very soon. Just being optimistic here. :)

    It may be as simple as they decided to do more BSS testing while they had the opportunity. May not get this chance again (for several years).

    Or something else needed attention.

    Going to stay optimistic. These things happen.

    Most STA's are for a period of 30 days. I think that even if they believed it would take only one additional day, Directv would have to safely request 30 days.

    I change my mind about BSS. The STA is only for D12, not RB-2A. They each had their own STA.

    It could be a simple as the BSS testing taking a day or two longer than planned and not having enough time left in the original 30 day STA to do all of the planned D12 tests. It's way too early to panic.
