    The switch from MPEG2 to MPEG4 must be happening now. At 6:03 ET the screen went black and it is still out on ESPN.

    Well none of the mirrored channels work but I did get 306 and 552 so after having seen HD off the new bird I'm off to the gym. I am sure you guys will let me know when everything else comes online. Good start

    Changing channels is incredibly slow this morning. It is taking several seconds from button press to actual change.

    it looks the same to me. I have a Bravia 1080p tv so maybe my tv has something to do with it. It also seems like the picture is running slightly behind the audio.
