Over the past month or so, Dish has added a bunch of new HD channels. In the past they were viewable from the 129 or the 61.5 satellites. Things have changed, however. The 129 slot is still carrying all of the HD channels, but the 61.5 satellite is not. All of the national HD channels are now on the 72.7 satellite and Dish has tentative plans to transition the remaining HD away from 61.5. The timeframe is not known, yet. Since the 72.7 footprint is apparently not reaching to Lake Chapala, soon you will need to repoint to 129 if you currently are getting your HD from 61.5. Sorry to be so confusing!
