    I wonder, Jeremy, if when D* adds this channel, their press release indicates their HD channel count went up by a dozen or so--kinda like what DISH did. They were at 48 HD channels supposedly, added the NHL HD channel, then said they were at 75 HD channels.

    Must be the new math.

    I have a feeling that there were a few other channels that caused the count to go up, those being the ones that DirecTV has been launching. ;)

    I'm just guessing, but I'd imagine we'll see it before the end of the month.

    It just reminds me of the ole "my wiener is bigger than your wiener" argument that two 11-year-olds would have.

    Anyone know when I could expect to see Altitude and Fox Sports Rocky MTN in HD? Would love to have Altitude before the Nuggets regular season starts!

    So... whats on tap for this week? I'm hoping for NHL DIS and NIK. Once these are HD I can go to an HD ONLY favorites guide and everyone will be happy!

    NHL could happen, if not this week then next week for sure. Disney won't happen until 2008, and Nickelodeon is probably coming next month, maybe in December.

    hi all. I am in northern California (bay area) I am not getting CNNHD, SPEED CHANEL HD, animal planet HD, but some of the other new HD channels are OK. It says searching for SAT signal error 771. Any help or inside would be appreciate it. Thx

    Check your signal levels on 103(b). It sounds like you're missing either your even or odd transponders.

    Is it consistently those channels that don't work or does it vary between the new channels?. If its consistent, then Jeremy W is right and one half of the transponders aren't coming it. If it varies, then one of the tuners or more likely the BBCs aren't working.

    ok...it is only the same channels both on my H20 and HR20. I checked 103b and the values are between 0-27 and signal strength about 25% for both tuners. I guess thats it?

    All my other signals are the same as they were when first installed and my satelitte has not moved. However dtv wants to charge me $$ to have someone align it. Is that right why would they not set it correctly the first time?

    No no, just stay on the first page, with all of the numbers, don't go into the Signal Meters page. Change the satellite to 103(b) and post the numbers that fill in.
    If you're missing half of the channels, your dish isn't misaligned, it's defective. The $70 fee is correct, but if you complain enough you will be able to get it waived.

    Livermore,...
    Anyone know why there weren't more channels on Wednesday this week? Are any more still pending?

    Probably because there was a new download and they wanted to promote their new "DOD" service.

    They aren't going to be promoting VOD for a while. People are going to have to find it on their own for now.

    I posted this in the NHL Network thread, but NHL HD is now on channel 215 as a sneak peak.

    I noticed this past Wed. that on the D* website the TV Program Guide there are more HD channels listed than I believe are currently on, including the following which I think are yet to be turned on ( correct this list if I missed something):

    Ch 266 BIOHD
    Ch 291 DISHD
    CH 292 TDISHD
    CH 311 FAMHD
    CH 325 SPKEHD
    CH 327 CMTHD
    CH 331 MTVHD
    CH 335 VH1HD
    PLUS 15 HD sports channels in the 600s some of which are already on but I did not cross check the list vs. those now on. I don't believe 15 HD sports channels are now on.


    However clearly more HD is coming soon.
