This is likely true (dying satellite) but the orbital slot is PRIME space so another satellite is already there waiting or will be replaced. AT&T "may" sell the slot but due to it's prime location I find that hard to believe. The question remains, what is the future of 101.

Don't forget that a replacement satellite that goes into that slot may not broadcast on the same band(s) that the current satellite does. That means that even if they replace that satellite with a new one, your current SD antenna may still not work.


That's true. However, if DTV continues to use that slot and they change from the KU band, they would have to replace every home antenna of every DTV customer in the US. So, what would you do if you were DTV? Put another KU band satellite up there and save millions or put a different one up there and shell out a whole lot of cash?
That's the problem. No one knows.


What I post is my 2 cents and nothing more. Please don't read anything into my post that's not there. If you disagree, that's OK.
Can't we all just get along?

Wasn't this discussion about Directv? We also aren't discussing HughesNet. (Hint: Look at the thread title.)

Humm, it's a misleading statement without clarity. You should be more clear with your posts as sometimes the reader is less interested in remembering the specific wording of the OP and read the words written.

I don't know if I should start a new post or not, but her goes. Is there a way to send the video and audio output from the composite or component output thru the video switch box to another tv? I am trying to figure how how to get the signal from the front tv to the one in the bedroom. Thanks again Gary

That depends on the switch box. If the switch box only uses coax, then you would need a device to convert the composite or component output to coax output, that you could then feed to the switch.

Even if your video switch box won't handle the composite output, you can buy a cheap composite to coax adapter and use that just like any other coax output.

I am trying to figure out if I have to get new receivers?
---------------------------------------------------------
If you got the same email I did, it plainly says you have to update
w/ all new equipment. But it didn't say how much all this new equipment
will cost me. All it said was that if I updated now, they wouldn't charge me anything for installation. They don't know yet that all the new equipment is not going to cost me anything either,....I'm letting that be kind of a surprise [emoticon])))
