    I see a lot of speculating on the channels that will actually be switched to HD or added as HD. Does anyone have a list of these channels beyone CNN HD or is it just anyone's guess?

    Whenever they're ready is my prediction...
    probably isn't even a set date at this time.

    9/6 or 9/7 but I'd $H** a brick if it's 9/11!

    Slightly off topic, but still one of the best Carnac jokes ever:

    Carnac: "Siss, boom, bah."

    Ed McMahon: "Siss, boom, bah."

    Carnac, opening the envelope: "Describe the sound an exploding sheep makes."

    Everyone on the show, along with myself, was laughing my a** off on that line! There'll never be another Carson, that's for sure.

    got my second HR20 installed today (it was a 700)
    The installer said I was lucky because D* was not activating boxes for a while today due to,
    "some changes they were making at D*, it seemed like 1/2 of D* was not working for a while"
    was his direct quote.
    Something is up, but I agree with the theory that they go live with the new channels when they are ready, and not a minute sooner.
    With something this complex it doesn't make any sense to commit to a live date, just do it when you can

    The channels I was worried about were FX, SciFi, A&E, etc. But mostly FX and I just found out it is on the list to be carried. The Golf channel is going to share time with another channel. Starz, TMC, Cinemax, Encore and new MPEG4 feeds for HBO and Showtime.

    What was that guy's point?

    That is unbeleivable ... They would have dates for everything. Ofcourse those can slip / change ... after all we are talking about many companies co-ordinating with each other for this (content providers + D*) and that can't happen in a vacuum.

    I won't be surprised if this date has not been communicated to CSRs.

    Won't the big sign be when the satellite moves to 103 and we start getting some signal from it ?

    The big sign is when they light them up and we can tune them in. Anything before that is just cause for HIGH ANXIETY.

    True. I just think it's completely wild to expect channels, when it's not physically possible yet. :)

    Football. Sports seems to dominate the HD programming. Now and in the future. Did you see all the FSN's on the new HD list?
