Champaign - Decatur - Springfield, IL - LIL's

According to the DirecTV website (someone posted the link here) The Springfield - Decatur - Champaign IL market is supposed to have Local HD's on the satellite in September.
Another week has passed and nothing.

Now, in this market, you either have to have 2 dishes, one pointed basically away from where the 5LNB points.

My installer did not install the 2nd dish. So, the only way for me to watch local programing is with my OTA.

Anybody have ANY clue as to what markets are coming next week?

Or, better yet, when this market in Illinois will get the Local HD's off the satellite?

Thank you, a concerned, but happy DirecTV subscriber....

I was hoping for Burlington VT as well but no such luck here either.

I just checked and D* apparently just updated the LIL rollout schedule to as follows:
September: Burlington Vt.-Plattsburgh, N.Y.; Champaign-Springfield-Decatur, Ill.; Myrtle Beach-Florence, S.C.

October: Boise, Idaho; Charleston, S.C.; Colorado Springs-Pueblo, Colo.; Columbia-Jefferson City, Mo.; Davenport, Iowa-Rock Island, Ill., Moline, Ill.; Dayton, Ohio; Evansville, Ind.; Harlingen-Brownsville, Texas; Norfolk-Newport News, Va.; Savannah, Ga.; Springfield-Holyoke, Mass.

November: Des Moines-Ames, Iowa; El Paso, Texas; Fort Smith, Ark.; Fort Wayne, Ind.; Greenville-New Bern-Washington, N.C.; La Crosse-Eau Claire, Wis.; Macon, Ga.; Peoria-Bloomington, Ill.; Rockford, Ill.; Sioux Falls, S.D.; Traverse City-Cadillac, MI

December: Dothan, AL; Bangor, Maine; Beaumont-Port Arthur, Texas; Butte-Bozeman, Mont.; Harrisonburg, Va.; Palm Springs, CA; Tallahassee, Fla.

So I think were still on for next week.
