Sho HD is 537. 543 was listed in error on the announcement.

Probably a stupid question, and one I'm only asking because I'm not in front of my TV right now. If I've got Weeds scheduled to record on Showtime HD already, do I need to switch channels? Or did they just change the HD channel from MPEG-2 to MPEG-4?

If you had it set for channel 71 you would need to change it to channel 537 if you want MPEG4.

But if you already had it set for 537 you are good to go.
