Addition of some new channels on the DirecTV Latin America
package on Galaxy 3R, plus a new layout.

In order to present better looking and standardized charts even
for the digital packages, a new layout is now under development,
which rather soon will be used for all digital packages.

The new layout has so far been implemented on these packages:
  Multichoice Africa on PAS 4 at 68.5E: C band
  DirecTV Latin American on Galaxy 3R at 95W
  DF 1 on Astra 1D/1E/1F at 19.2E
More packages will follow soon...

Here are some highlights for the new digital layout:

* Yellow colour has so far been used on all clear digital channels,
  but no specific colour was used for encrypted digital channels.
  On the new layout, an orange colour is used to individually mark
  encrypted channels, while the yellow one will mark clear channels.

* To better see the logotypes, they will be as big as for the
  analog channels.

* The internal numbers used in each package will now be listed
  on the digital charts, instead of their frequencies.
  To get the frequencies, please see the analog/main charts.
  (The frequencies will be listed even on the digital
   charts as well, but at a later stage.)

* The latest update time for the package is available on the
  digital chart, so you easier can find out when something
  in the package was updated.

* All links to digital packages should now open up in a
  separate window, if your browser can handle that feature.
  This is already in effect on almost all digital charts.

* Even more features will be added to the new digital layouts
  very soon, like PIDs for video and audio.

Any comments on these layout changes are very welcome!
