I have to agree HDnet picture quality is way better than mpeg2 version.

Watched a little of Rudy Maxa's visit to Venice. That's probably the cleanest that has looked via broadcast.

I just checked my SL for Torchwood, still showing on the original. So I tried to delete and set a new one on the new channel. Here's what happened:

1. Original channel SL put back in the list
2. New channel shows no episodes

Weird!

Followup.

The to-do list shows Torchwood scheduled on 306.

But the prioritizer shows 1 episode on 79 and none on 306.

further wierdness. Probably will correct itself over the next day or two I suspect.

I just lost 306 to searching for signal but still can see channel 76 because of the rain in Florida.


Strange all the channels from 99 are gone but I can see all the rest .


I had strong signal strength from 99 the other day.
