DIRECTV Transponder/Channel Maps: Data 7/27/08
Attached are two PDF documents covering DIRECTV Satellites at the 95, 99, 101, 103, 110 and 119 West positions:
  1. A listing by Satellite and Transponder, showing assigned Channels
  2. A listing by Channel, showing the source Satellite and Transponder
The documents are fully unprotected so you may copy and use the data as you wish.

The satellites at the 99 and 103 slots are now included; their channel assignments are shown but their associated transponder numbers are not yet available.

geez, u got me all excited ... but no transponder numbers for D10 ... ah well, 1am ET ... going to bed ...
Sorry for the disappointment, Sixto,

I'm hoping that our next update will include ALL the transponder numbers - including those for D10 and D11.

We at least can now answer the questions about what channels are on which sats. (And be a whole lot more current and accurate than Lyngsat...)

Great. Looking forward to any and all info for D10 and D11. Thanks!

With all the confusion with the 99 and 103 slots, I believe you must
set your decoder rings as follows to make sense of it:

At 103 West:
D10 = 103A = SpotBeams = 103S (S = spots)
D10 = 103B = Nationals = 103C (C = conus)
SW1 = 103A = SpotBeams = 103S (S = spots)

At 99 West:
D11 = 99A = SpotBeams = 99S (S = spots)
D11 = 99B = Nationals = 99C (C = conus)
SW2 = 99A = SpotBeams = 99S (S=spots)

On Non DVR's 103A/99A are Conus and 103B/99B are Spots

Great listing! How are you getting this information?
We have some very intelligent folks online here, with the equipment and the intelligence to grab the data stream to the sats and record it.

My part in all this is simply to assemble the collected data, beautify it so it's a bit more comprehendable and publish it. Yes, a symbiotic relationship!

Can a transponder show 0 signal for a channel that has a pixelated but still partially viewable picture? I'm having trouble pulling in GSN channel 309 -- sometimes it's okay, but often there is pixelation, sound dropouts, and intermittent 771 messages. According to these charts, that channel is on transponder 1 of the 101 satellite(s). But the signal strength on this transponder is always 0, whenever I've viewed it recently. That doesn't seem right. I wonder if the transponder for this channel might be misidentified. Some other transponders of 101 show low non-zero signals in the 40s: 6, 10, 11.

Edit: Going into this a little further, I find I'm losing signal on 5 channels shown as being on transponder 1 for sat. 101 (which has signal level 0), 5 channels on transponder 2 (signal level 0). Transponders 3, 5, 7, and 9 also show signal level 0, though I receive at least one channel for each of these with no apparent problem. So, though I don't understand what's going on, I guess it is possible to pull in channels even though signal strength shows up as 0.

Edit 2: In tpntochl, TVLD chan. 301 is shown as being on transponder 5 of sat. 101. Should that be chan. 304 instead of 301? I don't have a 301.
