    Hmm....no HD icons throughout the guide so far (even on Damages).

    Hopefully this is just error in the data, and not a SD-Upconvert network

    IIRC,it seems that the majority of the new HD channels coming online lately takes awhile for the guide to populate/update the HD info from D*.

    No stretch-o-vision, and SD upconvert for old shows ("Malcolm in the middle" is on right now) looks OK.

    Does anyone know if "It's always sunny in Philadelphia" is produced in HD? It's quite possibly the funniest show on television (if you have a sick sense of humor, that is).

    ha, I was wondering the same thing... I really hope its in HD. I LOVE this show. Its gota be one of the best shows on tv (this and the office). Not many people know about it because its on FX tho.

    Remember to reset your season passes to the new ch 248 to get the HD versions.

    Damages has to (better) be in HD.

    I guess I'll find out on Tuesday.

    Right now, there is no bug on the HD channel. I know it won't last, but it's still nice!

    Correct me if i'm wrong but has SCIFI added the HD logo in the guide? I don't believe it has. They still show content in HD but you never know what is shown in HD and what is shown in SD until you watch the program. FX could follow the same pattern.

    Hi guys, I was a long time directv customer, switched over to crapcast in feb when I bought my HDTV (mainly for a quick HD fix, no contracts and no money down) and now i am awaiting their tivo rollout just to see what all the hub bub is on tivo (i was a long time ultimatetv user and loved it)

    So my question is, FX is one of my fav networks... the shield, sunny, niptuck and rescue me! so, just because the 'station' is now considered HD does that mean that most or all these shows will be in HD? no right? I mean, just because the station offers HD doesn't mean the shows are... man, i am just chomping at the bit to come back to dtv, just want to see if tivo and some new stations roll out before resigning a 2 year agreement with dtv!

    your input is appreciated! thx, riz

    Well I am pretty sure Rescue Me is filmed in HD since it is out on Blue-Ray and maybe HD-DVD.

    Damages is repeating the first 12 episodes in a marathon on Saturday. If HD, it might be worth watching again back-to-back. Or recommending to friends. 8AM E/5AM P

    The Shield is great and so is Rescue Me but if I have my choice between seeing a sweaty bald head and crack whores or some beautiful T&A in HD I'll take the T&A!!

    This was a great channel add to the HD lineup today. There is sometimes good programming to be had for the recording. Cartoon Network and HGTV too.

    Good thinking & thanks!
