getting closer to the BIG 20,000 post, Earl....a celebration planned?
Science Channel HD doesn't look any worse than the other HD channels to me. Earlier I had TBS HD on and during an episode of Friends the PQ was so bad it was unwatchable. It may just be an upconversion issue with that show.
Strange i was just about to post how good this channel looks! i watched a couple of programs today and even though the guide did not list the progams as being in HD i thought the PQ was excellant. i watched a program called hot rocks and the other one was geologic journey.
I still don't have the science channel but should be getting it. It is the only channel out of the new HD channels I don't get. When I talked to a CSR, he had me reset it and did some things on his end but still no Science Channel. Finally, he told me to wait a couple of days and call back.
Anyone have any advice?
I'm in the same boat. So, we should call and have them refresh our HD packages?
Is this the consensus?
Call right back. Don't wait.
I just caught my first new episode of How It's Made in HD and it was truly breathtaking!
Indeed, the new episodes of How It's Made that are actually true HD are absolutely breathtaking - I consider segments such as the carved candle being made reference-quality HD. Smithsonian HD looks pretty good but it's still not in the same class that this is.
Between looking at steel wool, stoves, slot machines and carved candles, it was worth saving on the DVR to showcase my plasma. The best HD I've seen on the Science Channel to date.
Smithsonian looks amazing as well.
Has anyone found a solution for this yet?
I have the premiere package with the original HD pack. I had to call in and have the Starz charge line added to finally get Starz. but still no Science.
3 calls to D* , reset several times and they have no idea what the problem is.
This is the only HD channel I am not getting....any ideas?
If you do not see SCIHD in the guide, and have an HR20 or 21, make sure you have both the 284 SCIHD and 284 SCI enable in the guide you are using.
I'm getting SCIHD in the guide, but when I hit that channel I get a blank screen with the "channel not ordered" message.
The Science Channel is the only new HD channel that I get the 721 message for. I had the Total Choice Plus package, which is no longer offered, so they are billing me for Total Choice. The strange thing is, I get alot of the Choice Extra channels. like ESPN Classic, Fuel, Fox Reality, VH1 Classic, but I don't get others like Science Channel, the Military Channel, etc.
I'm guessing they are honoring the Total Choice Plus lineup for me, and it didn't include the Science Channel. Unfortunately I don't have a list of Total Choice Plus channels, and it's not on the DirecTV website.
Can anyone confirm this?
I have the old Total Choice Plus package, and I get the Science Channel.
Hmm, well then I'm confused. You guys are billed for Choice, not Choice Extra, I assume?
The DirecTV rep is telling me Total Choice PLus doesn't include Science Channel, and I need to upgrade to Choice Extra....
Well, the Science channel just came on by itself today. No calls, no resets.
Strange. But glad it's finally there. Great picture!!
I'm seeing something unusual on the Science Channel. My picture has what can only be described as "twinkling little lights or stars" across the middle section of the screen. It's subtle but it's there and only on this channel for me. I have a HR20-700 with hdmi to a Sony 40" LCD. Please let me know if anyone else sees this. You have to look closely and it appears noticeably with darker backgrounds. It could just be my setup causing this but I am interested to see if anyone else can confirm what I am seeing.
I see it as well. You are not alone.
