    How come thing like this aren't mentioned in the RSS news feed? It seems like this site is hit or miss with the latest Dish news. It wasn't this way in the not too distant past :(

    Thanks for the heads up.
    Watching the Graduate right now, but that stupid Sony Movie Channel logo in the top right needs to GO!

    The top right is an odd and annoying place to put a logo. :rolleyes:

    I wouldn't mind the logo as much if the DAMN thing went away.

    Well that's good they added a channel that can theoretically replace NTGEO since it now seems to be showing the HDTHR logo and it looks as though the programming is mixed and under the HDTHR moniker from here on. No big loss since they are also showing commercials now, some that last about a month. Unless this a temporary thing or only during certain hours? But it doesn't look as though. :nono2:

    The original HDTHR use to be a showcase of all kinds of great stuff without commercials. Guess they got bored with us.

    P.S.
    If this has already been discovered and posted, feel free to delete this.

    Had a problem finding it until I just entered the channel number. Guide logo says "ESPNEWSHD". Also, the channel currenlty has a major lip sync problem. Still nice to have another movie channel.

    HD Theater used to be one of my favorite channels. I first saw it on my C-Band system where the picture quality was simply not to be believed. Once the other Discovery Channels went HD they stopped rebroadcasting most other Discovery content on HD Theater and the channel seems to have been carrying the same old stuff over and over now for a couple of years. I've given up even checking it out. They should just kill it and put up something else that is actually useful in it's place.

    I kept missing it as its SMC. Which is how 395 Sportsman Channel used to be in the guide.

    I thought I remembered Sportsman being SMC when it first came online... now it is "SPMAN" I think, which maybe means they switched once they new SMC was coming.

    It is funny seeing that ESPNews icon though.

    My 922 displayed the same thing until the next day. Now the guide logo is correct.
