    Hey Guys, I recently upgraded to the Plus HD DVR package. Does this package get the HD channels in the 90's? This Sunday the Hall of Fame game is on 94 and I'm wondering if i will be able to see it. Every time I tune to it the last few days it doesnt have anything on it, but I dont get those banners that you see when you go to a hbo/showtime channel that you dont have giving you a number to call to order that channel. When I switched to this package from my old Total Choice pacage that is being phased out, the CSR told me that it was the 2nd best package. Thanks for any light you can shed on the subject!

    Johnny

    If you can receive ch 212 (NFL Channel) I believe that you'll get the game tomorrow then on 94. The channels in the 90's are for 'special events' and sports programs that D* puts in HD. If you tune to one of the channels that doesn't have anything on it at the moment then you'll just get the blank screen with no error message, you'll only get the message when a program is on that you're not supposed to receive.

    Johnny, in the future, you probably want to put this under the D* folders. This is a hodge-podge here.

    Not exactly... :sure:

    The focus of the HD Programming Forum, oddly enough, is HD programming (content)
    in general and, as such, the forum is not necessarily provider-specific.

    Incidentally, we're looking for a few avid HD connoisseurs to post their "Favs & Finds"
    in Hi-def programming in the newly created "This Week in HD" thread HERE.

    Nick, I should have phrased this differently. What I meant is that this is a hodge podge of HD programming, nothing pertaining to provider-specific questions.
