I don't think the bottom of the barrel comment was meant to be denigrating, just accurate. There aren't any channels left in sd that have a broad based appeal, regardless of who wants them or what they are. I'd like to see DIY and H2, but in a survey they wouldn't be high on the overall list of hd channels. Not ones that aren't up yet, all hd channels. The same would be true for any that aren't in hd yet. That would put them at the bottom of the barrel! And why can't you have the channels you want? There are too many to expect any one provider to have them all. There are bandwidth limitations you know.
