I do believe that TVRi (i.e. TV Romania International) just changed transponders on Galaxy 19 from 12152 H 20000 to 11929 V 22000 so a rescan is required in order to restore this service.  Thankfully, they did not switch to MPEG4 yet so existing receivers will continue to function at this time.

According to the TVR website at http://www.tvr.ro/coordonate-emisie-tvr-international_1584.html the new satellite coordinates are as follows:

În S.U.A. şi Canada:

Satelit: Galaxy 19

Poziţie orbitală: 97° Vest

Frecventa: 11929 MHz

Polaritate: Vertical

Symbol Rate: 22,000 msymb/s

FEC: 3/4

Keep in mind that unlike other satellites, Galaxy 19 suffers from adjacent satellite interference with DirecTV service so it is possible that people with older dishes may have to slightly tweak its alignment in order to receive certain transponders.  This is mostly an issue by metal dishes which can lose their parabolic shape over the years of being exposed to the elements.  Even with a brand new dish, you will find slight peak aiming position differences for certain transponders on Galaxy 19 so some dishes may have to be realigned.

Also, worth noting is that the new transponder is Vertical instead of Horizontal so if the LNBF skew is off a bit, it may prevent reception of the new transponder.

It is still on 11929 V 22000, but they changed the SID and PIDS, so all you have to do is re-scan the transponder to get it to come in again.

I just rescanned 11929 and rtv is showing as TVR International. Is that the same?

Yes the channel changed names in addition to the transponder move. Before, it used to be named TVRi but now, it is named TVR International.

Do you have a new channel called "TVR International" that gets found when scanning the 11929 transponder? This is the name they are now using. You may want to delete the old TVRi channel from your receiver to avoid confusion.

Also if you scanned in the new transponder immediately after it switched about 1 week ago, you probably want to delete the "TVR International" channel as well and rescan again as they recently changed the PID's on their channel and most receivers need to rescan the transponder in order to update this.
