I was talking to Directv last night about a problem I was having with channel 509.(lose connection on my part) The service tech said that HBOHD is on Sat 101 on transponder 24 and that sometime this month it will be moved back to 119.
It matters for the people who have one 18" dish and are receiving HBOHD pointed at the 101 Sat. They will lose the feed. Also for the people who were using one dish pointed at Sat 119 who lost there feed when the channel moved to 101. They should get their feed back. There is also speculation that there maybe a bundle of HD channels showing up on Sat 119.
I'm screwed. My "professional" installer couldn't hit the 119 sat back in March. He said a small leafless branch (2" in diameter) was preventing him from picking up the signal. He never even got a blip.
I ordered HBO when HD moved to 101. The tree is down now and I have 6" of snow on my roof with a 60 degree pitch. I wouldn't even send that boob back up on the roof now. Hopefully they keep it on 101 until at least the Sopranos finale Sunday.
