One of those - AMC. Advanced Modulation and Coding, using for A3 transponders mostly for Ka sats, but they're using it on a few tpns of Ku sats.Can you name one where DISH/Echostar does not already own or have rights to a similar patent and needs DIRECTV's technology?
I hope FCC and FTC would be on our side - customers - and will kill another monopoly what would be happy to milk more money from us !although doing so would be optimal versus the current situation.
All sat's stationary keeping system keep it "wobbling" in some boundaries. It cannot point antennas steady due orbital mechanics and sat's fuel limit.Sometime later, when we've returned to the same location the previous locals were either gone or the signal was too low to be stable, yet another time they're receivable again.
I did specifically dig into relevant part of dish HW what does prevent accept blind technically clueless "source" of such misleading info. He is usually non proficient in HW aspects and just parroting rumors from his close source from top managers, not engineers, nor understanding technical aspects. It was before, it's happening now - he didn't change. He would tell anything what would attract an attention to his person or his siteDish's last couple generations of hardware uses SoCs that support SWM, new firmware (and obviously a new dish) would make them able to get programming from Directv's satellites.
At least it's real basis for do discuss possibilities of HW vs what that person, who are technically illiterate and totally relay to words of someone who are far away from HW Dept, perhaps rumoring itself or passing wishful thinking.to come more from basic reverse engineering
