    Well, they moved back:

    359 CSNWS MOVED FROM Tp 30 on EchoStar 3 at 61.5w
    TO Tp 8 ConUS beam on EchoStar 5 at 129w

    360 ALTUD MOVED FROM Tp 30 on EchoStar 3 at 61.5w
    TO Tp 8 ConUS beam on EchoStar 5 at 129w

    Also, Source info added for 7523 KXIID. It is listed as KXIIDT3. Which apparently is FOX instead of the previously reported DT2(My Network TV).

    Happiness for a red headed orphan who can really belt out a tune? :D

    Hopefully she likes HD and that's what is going to make her happy. :)

    Come on Daddy Warbucks, er Charlie, turn on some more HD!

    True ... the channel name field is more limited and is likely why it was listed as KXIIDT. (Why not list it as KXII3 ?)

    A change in my market - ESBT which was "UPN Michiana" is now an independent station called "SBT2". It is still the WSBT-DT 22.2 digital subcarrier OTA and mapped down channel 30 on Dish (as well as remaining on Comcast locally). I always wondered why E* didn't use the channel name UPNM for it (instead of ESBT). Perhaps now I need to lobby for a change to "SBT2" in the channel name field.

    Yesterday the FCC accepted E*'s withdrawal of a complaint against inHD. This is generally seen as a positive sign that a settlement and carriage is near, unless you have more up to the minute news.

    BTW: We're discussing inHD and the FCC activity in this thread.

    Him getting information - involves having a PCI Card setup .. and writing a program that can collect all the needed data that comes from the stream (being sent down from satellite(s) by DISH) .. and then organize, compare, etc all that data.. with previously gathered simular data.. for changes, new data, data being moved, being removed, etc (this data has to do with Channels that come to our EPGs... - how they are delivered to us = with what EPG name, on which transponder, orbital location they are.. and if there might be any new channels there.. or if some maybe are taken out).. etc...

    Hopefully that helps somewhat :)
