    No...

    Those should all be at least around 90 plus levels - seems a Dish alignment to get 103 improved is timely there. Are your 103 (cb) levels also low like that?

    9-16 73 42 71 42 72 39 N/A N/A
    17-32 N/A

    They look a little low but not like 103 (ca).



    Just got off the phone with them and a technician will be here tomorrow since I have the Protection Plan and a realignment is probably warranted. This was the best experience I've ever had calling them. Wow.

    Those are also sub-standard.

    I recommend a Dish realign.

    This thread is about the SonyHD channel. Good, bad or indifferent. It’s not about being a fan of the SonyHD channel. One poster expresses their opinion, now they’re not “playing nice”? Don’t get me wrong, I’m glad we got SonyHD. I cannot wait to check it out once I get home. In fact, I thanked DIRECTV for this channel in the anticipation thread. We should let people express their opinion even if it’s not pro DIRECTV. That is what makes DBSTALK such a cool place. Peace Smiddy.

    Now, to stay on topic :D, is SonyHD 720p or 1080i?

    :lol: DirecTV adds new HD channel, they get bitched at. They don't add a new HD channel, they get bitched at :lol: Endless source of amusement for me, even better than watching TV, is watching the snits on this board.

    I do not have HD Extra Pack, but did open up my Guide to include these channels for the upcoming free preview. I noticed that all of them are dimmed out except for SONY HD, which is as bright as the channels I do receive. However, when I tune to 563, I receive the notice that the channel is not purchased...

    My "normal monthly bill" includes the $4.99 for the HD Extra Pack. I've found value in it since the beginning. Additions to it are welcome.

    I would "assume" SD only customers would be "sick of" all the HD additions too, since it benefits them not at all......

    Years ago I went car shopping. As much as I lusted after a brand new Corvette, my checkbook bought me a new Camaro. And I was pleased.......

    I,agree with most that this is a good addition to HD Extra Pak. In reference to redundance of airings most others do as well but, that,s what is good about cruising the guide and record the gems to DVR. In noting already scheduled The Graduate to record this week a very good one also,mentioned by someone with access to this channel before said logo was anoying.It seems less as anticipated since it.s some what translucent.

    I added HDEP the week it went live. Sony makes it even a better value.

    Well, this one channel will cost you about $0.63. You get eight HD-only channels for a mere $4.99. If you don't want it, don't pay for it. A great value though.

    Checked the guide and there is nothing I care to watch at least for the next 14 days.

    November looks more promising at their website --The Natural, On the Waterfront, Das Boot, Taxi Driver, Starman.

    The...
    Smiddy, I respectfully disagree... should I start another thread to say that? To have a thread where everyone agrees would be painfully boring, something like

    +1
    +1
    +1
    +1

    It's the discussion, agreement, debate, disagreement, differences of opinion and the back-and-forth on a topic that makes most threads, and this board in general, interesting. I don't believe that is inconsistent with 'playing nice' with each other, is it? After all, if we can all agree that when we do disagree, to do so agreeably. On any given topic, where there are different views, let us not separate our opinions into pro and con threads, but rather, enjoy a spirited exchange of ideas?

    I'm with you guys.

    I rarely see any decent movies on the movie channels.

    Of course everyone has their own subjective tastes, but can I please get some 'Coming to America', 'Trading Places', 'Beverly Hills Cop' :D

    I can only take so much 'XXX' (Vin Diesel flick, get your minds out of the gutter :lol:) and 'Step Brothers'

    Why did this channel not get added on a Wednesday? Isn't that unusual?

    Moderately unusual by recent practice, but not unprecedented.

    Some evidence they meant to go live last Wednesday and hit a snag of some sort that pushed it back a little.
