The YES HD under part time RSNs is the My9 network feed for some Yankees games.
If you stop responding to them or put them on ignore, then eventually they'll go away.

That was an entire section I meant to go back and clean up...and forgot. Working on it now.

Update: fixed

The RSN's are the trickiest area.

Can't pull up the comparison list Hoosier; every time I click on your signature link, it just takes me back to comparison thread. What am I doing wrong?

The list is in the first post of this thread. The link in my signature takes you to that first post. The list appears as an image. Are you not able to see it?

Nice job, Hoosier!

A slightly larger font for the table would be nice. And the black on yellow text would be much more readable if it was bolded. As a matter of fact, all the table's unbolded text should be bolded IMO.

The long "Cinema HD" section seems to me to be a waste of space. If the point is to show there are lots of such channels, there might be a better way to go about it. At the least, you could do like you did with Big 10 Network, letting DirecTV and Dish share rows with each other and labeling the rows just plain "Cinema HD".

Same thing happens for me. Could be some blocking of images or something by my company. I see it on my phone but not my PC.

Good list Hoosier, thanks for taking the time. It really shows the emphasis each service puts on types of HD programming they lean towards.

Weird. Went back to check my settings, and images are enabled. Still can't pull up the list. I'll check later. Maybe it's something to do with being at my work computer. I'll check at home tonight.

All good ideas. I'll work on it and post an update.

Update: I made those changes. I condensed the Cinema HD section. I know that I could just put xx number of Cinema HD per provider, but I think it is nice to have both the numerical value at the top and the visual aide within the list.

IMO
- both the directv & dish columns should be the same width just for esthetics.
- 3D should be the next to last block right before provider channels.

I may move "3D" as you suggested. Both the DirecTV and the Dish column are the same width however.

Update: I moved 3D towards the bottom.

Provider owned: DishFYI on 101 is part time HD at night. Shows concerts.

"Belligerent and numerous."

Sometimes I update the Dish Network FAQ

AT200, Hopper & 360 via HDMI to Onkyo 505 to basement 42" Westy, Hopper via Comp-over-Cat5 to living room 42" Vizio with a Roku 3, Joey to Toshiba 32" LCD with a Logitech Revue. You want fries with that? Pull up to the 2nd window.

It's called DishFYI? I'll add it. Thank you.

Also, I'd REALLY recommend making that JPG a GIF. I made it a 32 color GIF and it's 195K instead of 1.5 MB.

Edited to add:
ESPN Full Court (college basketball package) is on Dish and in HD

Great work!

If I was looking at both providers, it would be simpler to compare if there was one section for the RSNs, with some indication of full time, part time, or missing. Of course that would add more text, or require another color, so that also complicates the chart.

The way that it is now has all the information, you just have to make sure you read it all. (Which, if someone is really comparing the providers, they should be doing anyway.)

Again, great job!
