Can we assume the issue is software related for what's wrong with D10?
If it were software related I think it could have been fixed awhile ago without the need to move it. I would say it's most likely a physical failure and all that movement at the end of the D12 testing at 76 was a way to mitigate the hardware failure.
My guess would be defective solar panels not providing enough power, but it's only a guess.
So, I suspect once we get transmission from DirecTV - 12 this thread will be closed for good. It has been one long journey for DirecTV - 12, the longest of all the three "newer" satellites. The importances of which has only been surface scratched. Those guys are DirecTV were very brilliant to have a "ground spare" since it appears they had a clear understanding of the risks. What a thing of beauty! Come on Big-D, fire up some transmissions!
I see a mass change over most likely. All programming could be duplicated on D12 and a single guide data update would map all HD receivers to D12. When D10 is fixed all they have to do is adjust the guide data to see the appropriate sat for each channel. IMHO.
I could be wrong but I believe 2 different satellites broadcasting the same frequency range, even if it's the same data, would be bad.
Why force natural processes ? It will come to the end when it come - no need to push it into a grave.
I don't see it that way - see that numbers ? http://www.dbstalk.com/showpost.php?p=2457679&postcount=9984
It is my understanding that D10 and D12 will share different portions of the same frequency range. They will be to close together to use identical frequencies even in their permanent positions.
That means - each transponder (ie particular freq range) must be only one active.
Still seeing a lot of zero's
9 - 16 78 80 83 80 56 59 46 0
17-24 0 0 0 0 36 0 50 46
Am I the only one seeing theze zero's?
I wouldn't worry too much about zeros. It's probably just testing. We'll see it cycle until they're ready to go live.
No, I have been seeing zeros also but nineties as well.
DTV10 downlinks from 18.324GHz to 18.776GHz center frequencies of 24 transponders
DTV12 downlinks from 19.890GHz to 20.170GHz center frequencies of 16 transponders
There is NO frequency overlap, and therefore all the 24 of DTV10 and all of the 16 of DTV12 can send us programming simultaneously. As a matter of fact all tp's on DTV12 are modulated right now, may be just test patterns, but could very well be HD shows duplicating what is sent on DTV10 in anticipation of the DTV10 maintenance. All they may have to do is reprogram the guide to map the DTV12 transponders to the DirecTV channels we all know so well.
A question for SIXTO (etal)? How do we even know that we are NOT watching DTV12 unless the 103(cb) signals go to zero or NA on or after the speculated May 19th-ish date?:eek2:
If you have BBCs, remove them and you won't get any signals from D10.
93 94 94 95 92 93 93 93
92 90 91 90 93 85 93 87
Post#1 has the details ... D12 shares with SW1 for national, and shares with D10 for LiL ... the guide data points the receiver to the correct Satellite/Transponder/PID for each channel.
Here in S.E. Florida, all of my D12 TP signal strength readings are from 95-100 and have been for the last two days with the exception of TP19. It runs consistently 15-20 points lower than the others (see picture). TP19 was at around 95 here the first day D12 lit up. This leads me to ask a question.
Are the conus transponders able to be individually aimed?
I have no control over the process, but just saying it will be coming very quickly and just wanted to get a couple more cents in before it dies. I'd actually love it to stay open and thrive, but alas, I have no control of that either. As for "natural" I think it is unnatural really either way. :lol:
Like many most of my 103 (ca) and (cb) signals were in the 60-70 range. I decided to do a little "adjustment" myself. As of 6:30 PM in northwestern NC with cloudy skies here are my #'s
1-8 96 96 95 95 95 95 95 95
9-16 95 95 82 94 95 95 95 95
1-8 95 95 91 88 93 91 87 85
9-16 90 89 88 86 91 90
1-8 98 99 96 95 97 100 97 100
9-16 97 99 97 92 97 100 96 100
17-24 97 0 96 97 97 100 97 100
25-32 98 51 98 0 100 100 98 100
Three transponders on 110 are at 90 96 and 95
22-24 99 82 100
25-32 95 99 100 99 83 100 100 99
Needless to say all the bolts are tight and unless some catastrophe happens I believe I am "set."
Pretty impressive numbers for a 5-LNB dish, IMHO. Nice work! :up:
