    Having H2 and LMN VOD in HD, could this possibly mean that we'll see these channels in HD fairly soon or is that just wishful thinking? Hoping for some updates soon as to new HD channels, or is that it for this year?

    However as of last night, the download of episode 6 is actually episode 5, even though the guide shows the ep. 6 info. (episode 5 correctly downloads episode 5). Haven't checked today.

    DirecTV could have brought this in one, two years ago (however long ago). It's a matter of making it happen.

    Considering the basic-cable programming appearing in the channel ranges of the 200s, 300s, and select ones in the 500s, and national sports in the 600s … I think H2 HD will be the next high-def addition. Lifetime Movie Network HD could come in at the same time. Then again, I thought that with Cooking Channel HD when DirecTV added DIY Network HD.

    There are strange choices being made at DirecTV.

    NEW HD VOD content:
    1327 CMT
    1333 MTV2
    1566 Crime & Investigation (New VOD channel, ALL content is HD)

    Also, I see 1 episode of Leverage on TNT VOD in HD. So it appears TNT has HD VOD content off and on as one expires a new episode here and there is added, that is the only HD content though on the VOD channel currently.

    Updated the post in my signature as well

    Some of the CMT/MTV2 content has the same VOD listed twice.

    I also noticed that HDNet Movies now has an AXS.TV logo on it...

    Just curious, but does anyone know why The Movie Channel East (554) has the exact same programming as The Movie Channel Xtra (556)?? Thought they were two completely different channels with separate programming.

    There was a note on sho.com that they have problems as a result of hurricane Sandy.

    Oh okay I was wondering why Showtime East HD content was also on Showcase, Sho Extreme, Beyond, Next, Women as well..... They will be able to promote Dexter and Homeland very well tonight in the Guide anyway :D

    So technically right now D* only has 3 SHO/TMC channels in HD if you don't count the West coast HD feeds & the ones displaying the same content...

    On linear channel 561 or the VOD channel 1561? I am seeing the correct HD Net Movies logo for both... the VOD only has a logo in the iPhone app of course but it is correct...

    H2
    Discovery ID
    TV Land
    Military Channel

    The VOD channel. Going to 1561 on the receiver... the VOD screen has an AXS.TV logo on it.

    Even though it is still titled HDNET Movies On Demand.

    Wait. 561 is HDNET movies. 340 is axs and I have the axs logo for both linear and on demand.

    I see the graphics on HDNet Movies On Demand are from AXS.TV as well. I didn't notice that when I was flipping through things...
