Is there some technical reason that D* does not have full HD in local markets (Portland, Or for instance - no CW or PBS in HD, just the usual 4)? (or is their website not up to date?) DTV has full HD in all the 'typical' local channels (ABC,CBS,Fox, NBC, CW, PBS) so it is certainly possible. Also, why not full HD in the Turbo HD packages (or full channels for that matter), a bit strange marketing if not some technical reason (such as spot beam limitations) PS: I assume HD is mpeg4, true? If so then with its inherent smaller use of BW, some other reason?? I am likely to switch to Dish when DTV contract over, so would like to NOT make a HD step backward, especially locals!! Thanks for any real info (no Harry Potter please)!
