    I'm assuming that this only applies to the networked setups. I don't have a network setup with my HR20. It's just a typical install.

    Um, no. What he meant was, the regular Guide is what you see on-screen when you press the Guide button. The ONLINE Guide is what you see when you log into your account on Directv.com.

    Got it! Thanks. I never looked at the guide on-line before so it was new to me.

    Lancaster,...
    Is this channel going to be SD or HD? Or will it switch to HD automatically when an HD program comes on and the IRD is HD capable?

    I know they haven't started HD broadcasts yet but his Big Ten Channel 220 certainly doesn't look like an HD channel to me. :confused: It looks just as awful as most of the other SD channels.

    It isn't an HD channel at this point, and won't be until the new bird is ready to go. Why would you expect it to look different from other SD channels?

    That's because 220 isn't an HD channel

    Unless D10 lights up.

    Regarding new channels showing up. I'm in the Norfolk/Virginia Beach DMA even though I'm in North Carolina. So my locals (with a couple of NC stations) are from Virginia.

    Now my H20 and the online guide show Raleigh,NC DMA stations, most marked HD.

    Does this mean I'll be getting both?
