    I've added (two times) Hero's High Def to our To-Do list in our HR20-700.

    Each week the recording starts on the non-HD NBC channel. If someone else had not watched me add the show to the To-Do's, and confirm I was selecting the HD channel over the Standard channel I'd think i was going crazy. This is the 2nd week in a row this has happened.

    We do not use OTA, purely whatever is delivered via the dish.

    As a side note, even on the SD Channel we had audio drop-out near the end of the show during some critical dialogue. We're running 12a software.

    What channel call sign shows up in the playlist? Is there any chance the local station is sending the SD feed over the HD channel?

    Cheers,
    Tom

    First I would take the SD version out of your guide, just to be sure there is no mistake.

    Second I would check to make sure your NBC affiliate is actually in HD and broadcasting Heroes in HD. They may have an equipment problem. Probably a good place to research that is at AVS and your locals area's thread. Link is in my sig.

    Maybe the box is confused... thinking you want to watch the show "HEROES" on NBC, when you really want to watch some knock off show called "HERO'S."

    My thoughts too.
    If the [my] station has a problem they "dump" the picture to 4:3 format.
