I checked the list in the above sticky and channel 283 is not in the list, but is currently being received in HD. Perfect timing to watch the current shuttle mission. So I must say to Directv "It was a good choice for the next HD channel!".

Smart UPS 2200
Monster Reference Power Center HTS-3500
Westinghouse Monitor W-4207
Directv HR20-700 [0x02cb] (HDMI 6'Connection to AV receiver to monitor)
R15-100+300

I have watched on and off all day and it is SD as always for me.


DirecTV, please don't make me have to go back to watching March Madness in standard Def! Oh, and the usual begging for AMC and BBC America. You are so close to actually being the HD Leader.

I wonder if you was watching maybe HDnet? Sometimes they carry Nasa stuff.

283 is in SD here. HDnet showed the Shuttle launch earlier in the week and I'm assuming that's what you saw.
If it ain't in HD, it ain't worth watching!

Since it looks like this was a false alarm, I'm going to close this thread.
