For some reason on my C51 client (HR44 is not affected), some satellite test channels are showing the 721 error, while others show the direcTV logo or a black screen (the ones that show DTV's logo are ones for satellites that can only be received with a 5LNB and I have a 3LNB)
9501 (101 Odd) - "SAT A 101 (Odd Txp 13V)" for split second before 721
9502 (101 Even) - "SAT A 101 (Even Txp 18V)" for split second before 721
9503 ("95 Horiz") - DirecTV logo
9504 (99A Odd) - black screen
9505 (99A Even) - black screen
9506 (99B Odd) - black screen
9507 (99B Even) - black screen
9508 (103A Odd) - black screen
9509 (103A Even) - black screen
9510 (103B Odd) - black screen
9511 (103B Even) - black screen
9513 (119 Odd) - DirecTV logo
9514 (119 Even) - DirecTV logo

And this is causing you untolled grief because?

If you are having any problems receiving any channels, or other problems, you should check your satellite signal strength and see that you are properly getting what you should be getting. I see no reason to drop the thread, and perhaps someone might have comments on why you see different things on different test channels.

Is it not reasonable to assume that test channels may be shut down from time to time as part of the testing process?

No, Directv's test channels are always live. That's the whole point.

There is a separate category of channels in "TEST" which they do before a new channel goes live, or make a major change (i.e. when they moved a few HD channels to 101) but that's not what they're talking about here.

Are these really test channels where new theories are vetted or are they just slate/art card channels used for identification purposes?

They are intended for customers or technicians to test the dish setup.
