    Sorry to seem obtuse - but I am not sure what you are asking. Are you asking what satellites and which transponders provide the APG streams for each of the three services ?

    Not obtuse at all my friend, probably I didn't formulated well my question....
    Yes the MDATA, EEPG, EPG, Activation, etc. (mapping for them)

    Thanks in advance

    Rafael,
    Here's a LINK to a discussion of the US Domestic Metadata streaming. You might want to browse forward and backward from that post. The answer is somewhat confusing because the mechanism for current/SWM systems is different than that used for legacy/MPEG2-only receivers.

    Now, given this information, are you then pursuing details of what TPNs on what satellites provide the APG streams ?

    Yes, I am aware that DLA and SkyMex are completely different topics.

    As of this morning (12/18/20) Satellite G3C is no longer providing service to Directv. The 95W slot is no longer being used.

    Full details are in the TPN Map thread link, in Post #1.

    Has there been a change on the satellite / transponders for the LA locals (excluding the west coast networks nationals)? They have been listed for several years as on D12 103(s) transponders 19, 21, 22.

    Are you experiencing something that suggests a change?

    There were problems I believe I remember with D12. I looked at the transponder chart and now see both national and spot beams for 19, 21 and 22 at 103 on D12. Is it possible that the channels on the spots have been transferred to the national beams.

    Several years ago, D10's lack of stability (wobbling) rendered it unsuitable for Spot Beam service. That may be what you remember.

    To answer your question: no spots have been transferred to NAT beams. Your DMA has always received the West Coast (HD or SD) DNS channels on the NAT beams.

    are the airline core channel feeds mapped to DNS or they are there own thing?

    The Airline Core channels are 'virtual' channels. That means,for example, the CBSe DNS channel and the CBSe Airline Core channel are the same stream on a NAT Beam.

    The key is that your specific receiver must be authorized to receive channel 390 (CBSe DNS) indicating you are authorized for DNS service. Or a receiver must be authorized to receive channel 9531 (CBSe Airline Core). If you have a private 757, the additional subscription cost will be negligible.

    but they are HD so how soon for the mpeg 2 cut off.

    There are a set of HD DNS channels and a set of SD DNS channels. The Airline Core channels are all copies of the SD DNS streams.

    Getting rid of MPEG2 is certainly an objective. We just don’t know when.

    It can't happen until they replace most all of the MPEG2 receivers (and they'll likely have to orphan a few).

    I think part of it comes down to whether or not they have enough receivers to cover or if they need to get more returned receivers refurbished.
