RuralRouter Have you performed a soft restart of your receiver; i.e. press and hold the power button until something happens on screen or on the receiver?

I'm not. I'm starting to think it may not happen as I don't have the triple lnb.

LONSat It probably would have gone regardless of what you did. They were probably updating the maps for the 600 and 800 series first for the last round of 2019 changes yesterday first thing. The 500 series changes (drops) probably happened later in the day.

@stephimoe not sure why but @k801809 indicated that today would be the end for the 500 series. Perhaps it will happen once the security keys cycle.
TSN remained while I had left it on that channel, I turned the channel late last night, and when I went back ....IT was gone...no channel, no signal...nothing. wonder if I had left it there how long it would have stayed lit up.

Oh well.

I do have a question for @k801809 though CTV2 HD Alberta is there if I enter the number directly but it doesn't show in the guide. If I look in settings it is greyed out like it is unsubscribed. It doesn't seem to be configured quite right.

stephimoe """"As a side note the 5xx series receivers are no longer supported as their channel maps have been decommissioned and they will not even receive the few Bell Media Std Def signals left on Anik F1R"""

My DSR 505 still has TSN and TSN 2 working like a champ. Guide is Classic line up still .

LONSat Unless there is a surprise HD addition CTV2 Alberta launched today as the last HD addition for 2019.
Fashion TV Std Def also launches on G1.

As a side note the 5xx series receivers are no longer supported as their channel maps have been decommissioned and they will not even receive the few Bell Media Std Def signals left on Anik F1R

tvmaster Yes, I know - that’s why I thought they’d put them together. After watching the ‘kids’ version for a day - sorry, it seems stupid to separate them. Taylor Swift is Taylor Swift. I’d move Juicebox. In six months, it will be interesting to get some Nielsen numbers on the two ‘locations’.

k801809 @LONSat is correct - they were like this in the old line-ups as well.

Ok, I’ll scrutinize and get back to you. Yesterday I watched Juicebox for a good hour, so I guess I’m a kid at heart...

Stingray music channels - ah, what's with the space?

With the new, National channel map, for some reason, Stingray Juicebox is at channel 375, but the final three Juicebox music channels are up at 477.
Doesn't that seem completely ridiculous?
If there's a good reason for this, can someone explain it to me - I'm all about learning
