Yep... CH-2000 is still blank, and TANDBERG has moved to:

11722 V /SR 3197 VIDEO 308/AUDIO 256 /PCR 62 (also blank for now)

SQ~50% in drizzling weather...

I got the 'pruebas' from "portaleds.com/espanol/index.php"

Receiving the Tandberg tp now. It was showing a still photo of a city skyline with high-rise buildings. Now black screen. Averaging about 50% in good weather. Much weaker than other tp but video was clear, unbroken.

Receiving the color bars with audio tone now in a snow storm with up to SQ 53% after brushing signal-blocking snow off the LNB. Maybe some programming is coming!

Now receiving CTV2 (live from the Vatican) on 11992/H/6666 @75% SQ

(kind of funny that the Vatican uses an SR of 6666! Seems a bit ungodly does it not? lol)

Yes, NBC Tel-Aviv is now MSNBC with a little weaker signal! What a waste: we don't need two MSNBCs on the same satellite. Let's hope they're just testing in preparation for a new channel.

Nothing seen this hour from CTV2 and the Vatican. 6666 sounds better than 4444 since 4 equates to death in some Asian cultures.

This morning's fresh blind scan shows duplicate MSNBC on 11716 is now black screen. AVC signal is its usual SQ 10% to 30%: as strong as ever but no video/audio as usual. 11861 H 45000 has "Prueba" (Spanish: Test) with EPG guide ITC presumably for $ channels: I haven't noticed before. IOW, nothing new.

The 11963/H/14714 transponder (TPAI & RTVGE) seems to be very weak of late. The other transponders seem to be fine...anyone else notice this?

I have. There have been short periods of time when I couldn't receive either. But usually quality is just lower. This is unusual. I thought it was just conditions or maybe my mast needed a plumb tweak. "Ch-2000" is still there on same tp but no video/audio.
