    Watched a little of Rudy Maxa's visit to Venice. That's probably the cleanest that has looked via broadcast.

    Has anyone checked their SL's for HDNet to see if the channel number for the SL changed?

    I just checked my SL for Torchwood, still showing on the original. So I tried to delete and set a new one on the new channel. Here's what happened:

    1. Original channel SL put back in the list
    2. New channel shows no episodes

    Weird!

    Followup.

    The to-do list shows Torchwood scheduled on 306.

    But the prioritizer shows 1 episode on 79 and none on 306.

    further wierdness. Probably will correct itself over the next day or two I suspect.

    I just lost 306 to searching for signal but still can see channel 76 because of the rain in Florida.


    Strange all the channels from 99 are gone but I can see all the rest .


    I had strong signal strength from 99 the other day.
