I briefly checked the guide on Directv.com and could not find any shows on Fox that had the "HD" logo after it. Does Fox have anything in HD?

Fox is only in HD via Charter and now directv. OTA it is not and is work in progress. Currently a fiber cable uplinks it to charter and directv and you have HD. So maybe we will have a guide issue due to the odd set up.

I'll have to check tonight. Even the guide on the TV does not have Fox shows in HD.

Are any of these stations broadcasting 5.1 audio? I watched Lost the other day & noticed that the DirecTV feed was Dolby 2.0 only.

Am absolutely stunned about locals in high def as I had no idea that this was coming! Super Bowl tomorrow will no doubt be gorgeous! And I thought those of us in the northwoods would be last if ever to get locals in high def. Of course, the price for DTV is going up in March so I won't be so inclined to grumble. After 3 yrs of service, I finally get what was 'hinted' in March of '06 as 'coming soon'!

7 and 55 have been in DD 5.1. Still looking at the others. I don't think I have ever seen 12 or 9 in DD5.1 on the antenna.

There is no DD 5.1 on 12 or 9. They said it is coming but do not have a timetable yet. Yesterday would be fine with me!
