    As of this morning, the Duluth, MN/Superior, WI local networks are now broadcasting in HD on DirecTV; all but CW that is. :)

    My LIL channels (network 591) are shown as being on 103S, TPN 6. The signal strength display on my receiver shows N/A for that Tpn. Is there an error in the transponder map, or an error in the receiver software?

    tomspeer,

    Please try this procedure, detailed in a post earlier in this very same thread.

    http://www.dbstalk.com/showthread.php?p=3116012#post3116012

    Please, let's see the response from your Receiver for those channels. Let us know what you find....

    I only have time to do one channel right now, but it agrees with your transponder map, except I don't know how to get the transponder number. I would assume the other locals will be similar:

    0007FFFF1009FF10101012FFFF000E26130A1C0D1D14070000000
    0000000000000 XXXXXXXXXXXXXX 5A XXXXXXXXXXXX

    That's why we still need the "rules" for the LiLs, complex and "ugly" as they may be, to trace the TIDs given in the hex string for the spotbeam locals to the actual host satellite(s) and transponder.

    My Greenville NC locals say there are on SW1 @103w transponder 6, but when you go to the signal meter it shows that transponder as N/A.
    Anyone know what transponder these are on?

    BTW, using [ table] tag would make your post pretty.

    Isn't post #269 giving you a method to find out correct TID on your receiver ?
    Then we could proceed with TID->TPN decoding.

    Unfortunately, you are mistaken about "actual".
    All the tpn## what you see on your STB's screen are fictitious numbers [1-32].
    They are created by FW routine from TID/Net numbers just for easy communication between customers and CSR.

    In DTV system tables and SW, only Net# and TID# are matter.

    As to the rules: see camera3 site.

    P Smith: Thank you for that.
    The thing I am trying to get to is: When I want to see how good my signals are for my locals, I look at gct's transponder map to see where they are, then check the signal level screen on the set-top box. I can see the actual signal level from the SHEF command, and it corresponds to the values I see on transponders 4, 21, and 22 of satellite 103S. jamieh and I, and others of us in the Greenville, NC Market see transponder 6 in the transponder map spreadsheet, and on the STB, it shows up as N/A. The SHEF command responses for local channels 7,9,12,14 and 15, give the Transponder ID as 0x26 (38 decimal), on Net 14 (0x0e).

    So I am suggesting at this point that there is something astray in those LIL rules.

    tomspeer46,

    I think you are correct. The TPN Map data and the SHEF data clearly confirm each other with TID 38 for those channels in question.

    I would not question the accuracy of your STB display.

    So what now remains in question is our conversion process from TID to TPN.

    That homework is underway.

    Looks like it should be on tpn#4 - tomspeer46, please check it's signal level.

    Yes, the signal level on tpn 4 is +/- 1 from the reading I get from the SHEF response.
