    Beautiful picture!! :D

    This Supercar show is pretty cool but I wonder if they are going to make many more episodes, or if this is just a one-time thing.

    The PQ on this channel is great, but the huge white and orange bug is obnoxious. Hopefully they tone that down.

    At the start of the last two shows the picture goes out to a blank screen and comes back. Everything drops including sound. What gives? Has to be them turning something on at the studio? Anyone else getting this. It is right when each new show starts.

    The "Super Cars" was spectacular! Best HD PQ I've seen in a long time.

    I'm having an audio sync problem on this channel. And so far it's only this channel.

    Terrible Audio Sync issue...Sony CRT 50" Projection....no sound system, tv sound speakers.

    Sound is ~1 second too fast I think.

    I noticed this too, and I also am having the audio sync issues. The picture is great.

    Best new HD channel. And, yes, I am getting sync issues too, but with documentaries, you don't notice it as much.

    Perhaps the channel has a problem and is transmitting with a slight sync issue?
