    I just had my new AT9 and H20 installed Fri. The installer said next week D* will turn on the Seattle area HD locals ....WRONG. I just spoke with D* and they informed me it won't be until June of this year. What a bummer, what the hell? Can't they just flip the switch now or is it some contractual thing with all these privately owned affiliates up here?

    Ya, you were supposed to be april but got delayed apparantly, hartford suffered the same fate. They have to get agreements from every station manager, but still directv should have started this process a long time ago.
