    Agreed...just skimmed through it and answers most if not all of the questions I had. And they state the rollout of HD will start in September. :)

    I have to believe that it would make the most sense to start turning some of these on before their big emmy party Sunday and get some of the kinks out before they present them in that big pink balloon! :lol:

    A lot of us have seen those changes and then credits on our bills there is a thread about it somewhere.

    Remember, a while ago Bschneider (who has been pretty reliable) posted that several new stations will go live on Sept. 14, which is tomorrow. I would expect more testing today.

    He also stated that individual channels may go live prior to that date, too. I do expect about 5-10 channels activated by Saturday, though...BTN-HD to be among them.

    You would think TNTHD too so that people stop complaining about losing TNT during football. I don't know who these people are but they are out there.

    It's probably an oversight, but I didn't see ChillerHD listed on the updated D* web pages.

    I looked again and it's just not in any of the packages, but it is under the tab for all HD channels

    I would also expect TNT before the weekend. I don't think anybody wants a repeat from last week's ST issues.

    I helped my neighbor order new HD service last night. He got a sweet deal. Paid only shipping on the HR20 plus free HD for a year. Anyway the CSR said Sep 19th is when some of the channels would be active.

    DirecTV historically has actually turned channels on far before they "announce" it. I have no doubt that they plan to use Sept. 19th as their "marketing date", but I expect those channels (to be announced most likely Tuesday, Sept. 18th) to actually be turned on before that date. They simply won't "tell" the average customer/public until they have all the kinks worked out and the channels are already available.

    If I have a grandfathered package, will I get all the companion HD channels. I am concerned about Golf/Versus. I have one of the old Total Choice packages that includes Golf channel.

    Tried to check signal strength and got a "This will interrupt testing" for "Chuck" and "Journeyman" message.

    Looks like they are back at work!
