So you see it in your guide? I don't see 233 in any of my STB's and I did a refresh on the web site and a reboot and still not there. If folks are seeing it guess I'll just wait and see if mine every gets the change. I just didn't want to put out info that might be incorrect since I didn't see it and the annoucement I saw was not gone.


Yep... see right here on my HR21-700.
The guide data and channel listing data will cycle through out the morning...

It looks like this might have been a false alarm/news since where I got that info from now doesn't have it posted. I'm going to as a mod to please close this thread. Sorry - RAD


No, you are correct, as I saw it myslef on a dealer bulletin.
It is going to be on dual-feed for a week, then it will be removed from 309.

Hmm. On my HR20-700, I need to do trick play for the audio and video to show on both GSN channels. No need for any other SD channels or HD channels that I can find. Other DVRs are fine.
LR: HR34-700, H24-200, Fios DVR, BD350 Blu Ray, Roku Netflix Player, Chromecast, Sony 65w850 TV
BR: HR21-200, Viso 32LX, DB350 Blu Ray
Dish: Slimline, SWM8
Other: genieGo

GSN really needs to get the rights to old TPIRs from the 70s/80s. Didn't they used to air them a long time ago?


They did show TPIR reruns for a few years (even the original 1950s-1960s version with Bill Cullen), but can't get them anymore -- the company that owns TPIR apparently decided having reruns on GSN was detracting from the first-run episodes on CBS.

If they air them at night or on weekends, I don't see why it detracts (except to show that Bob Barker is far superior to Drew Carey). Plus you have so many people not home during the day anyhow to watch it. The show itself, except for the host, is basically the same now as it was in the 70s.

And yes, Jokers Wild would be a great addition. Basically a poor and dumber man's Jeopardy with a slot machine thrown in.

They should move G4 now. The only possible reason for them moving it to 310 from 354 was that they dropped the TechTV part and were no longer considered a news channel. Putting it next to GSN just because they are both about "games" never seemed right. Now that G4 is more of a mens channels it would probably fit better somewhere between 230-250 rather than being between Sleuth and ABC Family.


Didn't TechTV died four years ago? I loved TechTv! :(

Bill Cullen was a class act back in the day. Is he still living?

He died of lung cancer in 1990. Indeed, he was a class act...always very low-key, considerate and not wrapped up in himself like so many others were/are.

Give me "Treasure Hunt" with Geoff Edwards!

Or "Who Dares Wins" from Australia. It used to be on GSN, and was awesome!

Yep, not seeing 233 on any of my HR24's, but it shows on my HR23. Weird.

Carey rocks. And he's not nearly as creepy interacting with the models.

TJW consistently ranks high in viewer surveys and rankings, but is said to have been the lowest-rated program on GSN every time it's been run. While current rightsholder Sony Pictures Entertainment is still a GSN co-owner, it's unclear if GSN currently retains a license to air the show. It hasn't run in a very long time and is no longer listed on the corporate website as part of the channel's "Acquired Programming". (Then again, neither is CARD SHARKS, and that airs about thirty times a day...)
