I am having trouble with the VOOM channels one gets at 129 W. Taltman711 posted a while back that the satellite at 129 W was weak, and that until it is replaced that we will have problems with the signals from that bird, this far south. They are supposedly also available at 61.5 west, but I have not tried it so I do not knowMost of the old Voom Channels are mirrored at the 61.5 slot, but not sure about all. Dish(Echostar)has said that the future of HD will be at 129. However the sat. at 129 is having serious issues, and people in the USA are screaming about the signal fading in and out. Not the best way to promote oneself as the "HD leader"!!! Anyway, the best way--at this time--to get as much HD in Mexico as possible from Dish is to try to lock onto 61.5. You should be able to get a stable signal from 129 by this time next year when the replacement is launched for the current sat.
