    The audio way ahead of the video, like the others said.

    The aspect ratio is EXTREMELY strange. It's not 4x3 or 16x9. There's real thin (1/2 inch for my 27" lcd) black bars on left and right.

    Worst lip sync I've ever seen on any channel.

    That's an old grandfathered package - it might just not be included.

    Also, whether you want to or not, Directv might migrate you to another package at some point. There's nothing that says they have to keep old packages active for any specific period beyond your commitment date. I had Total Choice Plus for about four years and finally had to change when I added a premium a few months ago.

    At this point I'm not missing any channel I really want so I'm good for the moment. Now, if the situation were flipped and I got Planet Green instead of ABC Family HD, then I'd have to re-think (really want to see Kyle XY in HD!)

    Ditto. Though you would think by virtue of my doing the HD Extra pack that I would get all the non-premium channel HD channels available.

    At 8:30am eastern time, the picture issue is back.
    1/2 inch black bars on left/right (for a 27" lcd).
    Program name is "Greenovate"

    Oooooh, I know what it is!!!
    They are saving the planet by cutting down the screen width!!!
    :D
