    I did this on the Cubs vs. Brewers game tonight and it took me to a "TEST 206" station. Station looks pretty damn good to me. Seems like a better PQ for ESPN HD than before.

    Picture also looks better with the Cubs up 7-2! :D

    As far as we know, 206 is still being delivered in MPEG2 at this time.

    So if I want ESPN-HD tomorrow instead of going to Channel 206 I should go to Channel 73? Or will Channel 206 not be there to go to? I'm mixed up again now :confused: This High Tech stuff is just too much for me :(

    No you will want to watch 206 instead of 73. 206 will be MPEG 4, 73 will be MPEG 2

    Yeah it didn't send me to the normal 206, it said TEST 206 and didn't have an ESPN logo on the banner.

    Actually, the H23 does not have built-in BBC. Rather, it has a wide-band receiver that does not need to convert the b-band signal. It receives it directly.

    Thanks :) And great because I always use Channel 206 anyway. Isn't it nice when a plan comes together ;)

    Maybe some people are planning to, I just went into the chat room and there was "DirecTV HD" subroom... Nothin but crickets though.

    I've been up late keeping my girl company as she works on a design project. If I'm up still up I may stick it out, otherwise I'll just turn the TV on in the morning.

    I'm usually up by 5:30, so not any earlier than normal. Though I don't usually check things on a Thursday so hopefully I'm not too foggy at that time to check.

    Maybe it's easier for you East Coasters to get up early, instead of us West Coasters staying up late.

    I remember both of us being really, really sick last September while we waited for activation of D10. Thank God it's not a replay!
