It seems that the D3 Satellite is up and running -
Optus has announced that Australia’s newest state-of-the-art satellite, Optus D3, is fully operational after successfully completing extensive in-orbit testing ahead of schedule. Following the successful launch of the Optus D3 satellite on 22 August 2009 (AEST) from French Guiana, Optus has now completed a number of crucial tests at its geo-stationary 156 degrees East location. D3 will complement Optus’ existing four satellites providing services across Australia, New Zealand, and Antarctica.

Hi,

I am not suprised as I do not think anyone has a uplink in NZ for D3, Sky does not have one for their 7th transponder on D1 as far as I am aware.

cws82us: Sky I think using d3 for backup if anythink fails on d1


corrected slightly

yeah, probably right though.  I don't have a DVB-S2 tuner, so anything on D3 would only be HD at this stage I suspect.
