    Already explained: because it's not a simulcast (i.e., the program guide is not identical) of Food Network SD.

    Is it just me or does the pq of Giada's show look soft compared to the last one that was on?

    Which begs the question "Will this end up in the extra package come December 15th?" Personally I don't think it should. It isn't simulcast, however there is a Food SD.

    I think what he's actually wondering is why Food Network decided to do it that way with two separate channels as opposed to a simulcast...even with programs not necessarily in HD all the time..

    I can't seem to get a series recording for Good Eats on 231-1.

    Currently my HR20 is set to record Good Eats on 231 (series - keep all). Wanted to change to Good Eats 231-1 (series - keep all). Nothing showing up in the todo list. Does it use the SD version as comparison, and not record 231-1 (because it's already "recorded" from 231 sd)?

    Does it mean that the Food Channel 231-1 you have key in "231 + DASH + 1" to get that channel?

    Just curious - why is Food Network HD channel 231-1? I thought that D* was going to overlap the channel numbering.
