    Thanks, John... Should this part have read "removed" instead of added? Since I thought this mapdown was going to be taken away now that we have the regular Discover HD channel now.

    I know the feeling.. I'm still awake since yesterday. All kinds of neat things happen after 24 hours of being awake.

    Comcast SportsNet Chicago HD is a unexpected surprise. I'll have a few friends back in Chicago happy to hear that.

    I was a little late to work this morning because I stopped to check out the HD.
    If I knew it was coming on at 3am I would have stayed up another hour. :D

    Thanks JohnH for the update and thanks E* for CSNCH and the other HD channels!

    BTW: The Weather Channel may be a step closer to live on the 8's ... I'm not home to check but CNN's Interactive has been running on 200 for a while so it is possible.

    Anyone know why MHD and Vs did not get a mapdown channel along with the others?

    Mapdown is normally reserved for simulcasts, like NatGeo, HBO or ESPN.

    MHD is made up of 3 different source channels

    Versus/Golf Channel is explained by the name.

    I thought about that at first, but HGTV and food got the mapdown and are not simulcast.

    I guess I thought they would put MHD among the MTV and VH1 channels. Same thoughts for VS.

    I don't really care much as I usually enter 9400 on remote and scroll up through the HD channels before I resort to the SD stuff.

    P.S. I was watching an old Mythbusters at lunch and it must have been up converted. Curious if the current run of new season was recorded in HD.

    Are the even any WEST HD channels? I guess for those without DVRs they would be nice but for those of us with DVRs they seem like a waste of bandwidth. We can always record the program whenever it is on. Time zones are no longer a problem.

    The major premium channels have west feeds in HD. DVRs are nice, but the 2nd choice without forethought would be nice as well. I occasionally catch things on the SD west feeds because of timer conflicts or catching a program in progress on the east feed. It's better that waiting until later in the week or month for a refeed.
