The interesting thing about the article is that I received the newsletter via Email on Sept 30th, just one day before General Conference. Fortunately the week prior was the RS Broadcast so we had a chance to test the system.The satellite receivers in North America recently received a remote update to be compatible with the Church’s reconfigured satellite network. The primary motivation for the reconfigured network and resulting receiver update was to cut costs while maintaining a robust and functional satellite system. While every effort was taken to ensure a smooth transition, some updates were unsuccessful.
To alleviate any problems that may occur during a broadcast, those responsible for satellites and Church broadcasts should check their systems at least one week prior to any broadcast. This will allow time to repair or replace damaged or malfunctioning components before the broadcast. With the upcoming general conference, it is anticipated that some stakes may have problems with their satellite broadcast because their receivers did not successfully update.
Perhaps it might be best to be sure the newsletters are distributed in a more timely manner, especially if important news is included which in this case would have been considered as "timely".
I have tried twice to send feedback to MHTechNewsletter@LDSChurch.org only to have returned for security concerns.
