Much Music's Ren And Stimpy-athon Information

This information comes from our weekly satellite guide (OnSat)

One thing that I don't understand, is that one weekly guide say that the Ren and Stimpy-athon is on Aug. 7th, and the next guide says that it's on August 14th. Both guides are from OnSat, maybe the Ren and Stimpy-athon are on both Saturdays! (Joy!) It's probably just a printing error, and it might just be on the 14th, but keep your eyes peeled anyway this Saturday.

Here are the times for the various shows (All times are for the Eastern time zones)

                                                           (Editor's Numbers)
12:00 p.m.    Stimpy's Big Day/The Big Shot                       3
12:30 p.m.    Robin Höek/Nurse Stimpy                             6
11:55 p.m.    Space Madness/The Boy Who Cried Rat!                2
1:25 p.m.     Fire Dogs/The Littlest Giant                        5
1:50 p.m.     Marooned/Untamed World                              4
2:20 p.m.     Black Hole/Stimpy's Invention                       7
2:45 p.m.     In The Army/Powdered Toast Man                      8
3:15 p.m.     Ren's Toothache/Big House Blues                     9
3:40 p.m.     Out West/Rubber Nipple Salesmen                    10
4:10 p.m.     Svën Höek and Three Shorts                         14 (a or b?)
4:35 p.m.     Haunted House/Mad Dog Höek                         15
5:05 p.m.     Big Baby Scam/Dog Show                             16
5:30 p.m.     Son Of Stimpy                                      19
6:00 p.m.     AlMusic "Weird" Al takes over MuchMusic
              Similar to MTV's AlTV  (Good call Toastman!) 

The whole thing then repeats at 8:00 p.m. with AlMusic repeated at 2:00 a.m.

The guide for the 14th has the exact same show listing, so I think the way it's posted is the way it's gonna be. I'm just not sure if it's on the 7th, or the 14th, or both. I hope it's both! =OP

For those with satellite dishes, here's how to get MuchMusic. MuchMusic is located on the Canadian Anik E2 satellite, transponder/ channel 6. Anik E2 is located beside Spacenet 4. Here is the location with respect the other satellites...

G3  T301 (or T1)   G6  S4  E2  E1  M1 T303 (or T3)
                        || Right here!

Now, because MuchMusic broadcasts in stereo, you'll have to change the audio frequency (or subcarrier) to tune in the audio. The frequencies are..

On some satellite recievers you can select the type of stereo, if you can, make sure it's on Discrete Stereo.

Also, MuchMusic has a mono audio frequency, it's 6.67. I don't know if it works, I am always listening to MuchMusic in stereo. =O)

Well, that's it. If anyone has any questions, either E-Mail me or post it up on the newsgroup and I'll answer it there.
