I just got my DISH installation yesterday -- had been on DirecTV for a long time, but with a very old non-HD dish & DVR. I'm trying to hold costs down, so got the "Silver200" package with no extras (HD pkg or otherwise). However, I do have an HDTV and got the Vip722 DVR installed. I connected the DVR to my TV with an HDMI cable and set it up for hi-def output. My TV now sees the input at 1080i, but I am aware that that does not mean that it's a hi-def picture. The installation tech said that I'd get the locals in HD (Detroit), but in the guide it looks like there are a lot of other channels that are also in HD. When I tune to some of them, I see the "HD" graphic in the info banner and it certainly looks like a hi-def picture. So what's the story on hi-def channels in the standard package? And if I'm getting these in hi-def, what is included in the $10/month add-on?
