    From our man jediphish:

    HD channels formats (video and audio)
    This is what lights up on my Elite receiver and TV:

    CNN - 1080i DD5.1
    ESPN - 720p DD5.1
    ESPN2 - 720p DD5.1
    NFL - 1080i DD2.0
    BTN - 720p DD2.0
    TNT - 1080i DD5.1
    TBS - 720p DD5.1
    A&E - 720p DD2.0
    SMTH - 1080i DD5.1
    HIST - 720p DD2.0
    DSC - 1080i DD5.1
    TLC - 720p DD5.1
    APL - 1080i DD5.1
    SCI - 1080i DD5.1
    TWC - 1080i DD2.0
    VSGF - 1080i DD2.0
    UHD - 1080i DD5.1
    HDT - 1080i DD5.1
    HDNM - 1080i DD5.1
    HDN - 1080i DD5.1

    However, we know that UHD actually does 2.0 through the 5.1 active channels, so there could be others.

    I left off the broadcast networks, PPV, MLB, ST, and others.


    Thanks, jediphish!

    Anyone else who wants to add to this list, send a PM to Doug, Earl, Stuart or myself.
