    Today DIRECTV went 100% operational with its DIRECTV12 satellite, also known to us at DBSTalk as 103(ca).... and five new channels launch as well!

    Check your favorites list and be sure to add:

    277 Travel HD
    307 WGN HD
    356 MSNBC HD
    560 Hallmark Movie Channel HD (HD Extra Pack subscribers only)
    614 ESPNU HD

    Also, remember to redo any series links you may have for the SD version of these channels!

    You may need to refresh your services to get HallMarkHD to work correctly: https://www.directv.com/DTVAPP/mydi...component/mySystemResendAuthorizationBody.jsp

    As I stated in the other thread.. its glorious to see ESPNU in HD
    and MSNBC is much more watchable in HD .. with all the colors they use and the blurovision SD i couldnt stand it.

    Superstation WGN out of Chicago. (technically might not be a "superstation" according to cable regs, but really is.) :)

    An awesome independent channel and home to many of the Cubs games.

    Cheers,
    Tom

    Thanks for the clarification. Besides the cubs, why was it in demand?

    The former 70s channels (HBO, etc...) have shown back up in my guide, but show as blacked out

    Any reason as to why they are showing up as "dark"

    is it because they are new channels?

    Just switched these channels from SD to HD in my custom favorites. At least 2 of the 4 regular channels are showing HD shows at 6 in the morning. I wonder how long till they give another HD Extra Pack free preview so everyone can check out HMC HD.

    Receiving them all, except for Hallmark Movie Channel. You must have to be a paying subscriber to the HD pack too receive it. I'm currently receiving the free 3 month trial of the HD pack.
