Hmm, I'm not convinced some of these channels are HD feeds at all. Been watching CMT/HD all morning, and have yet to see anything venture outside the 4x3 box on my 16x9 TV; they're showing videos now, all in glorious letterbox (16x9 programs with black on all sides which should really be HD and fill the screen.)
To me it appears Dish is passing on the SD version of this channel and flipping on the HD flag. I KNOW these videos should be HD, I see them on the late-night HD video show on Paladia.
Same thing on VH1 (I haven't watched the others yet.)
Anyone seen ANY HD on CMT or VH1?
Disappointing; a few months back someone posted that CMT was a high-percentage HD material now, but that's not what I'm seeing.
