I've always loved this emoticon and thought it was a kick butt joy band playing versus sad/crying violin. It looks like an electric guitar, drum set and a cello to me. No violins at all.

In any case we all love SR's clues and poo-bahs.

Hah.....on closer look the 3rd instrument has got to be a stand up bass. No sad music coming out of that trio. I'm starting to feel the hope for a new National HD light up in the near future. May it be TCM HD or BBC HD.

Yeah... it's a stand up bass. Hmm... :scratch:

Randy Jackson played bass. He refers to people as "dawg." Perhaps it's National Geographic Wild. :P

OR maybe my totally false rumor that has no substantial information behind it about Disney Junior launching in HD is correct.


I was actually checking out something about Disney Junior, and noticed that Wikipedia is saying DirecTV (along with AT&T U-verse and Verizon FIOS) will carry it at launch. Granted, Wikipedia isn't the most reliable source of information, but apparently somebody else has heard the rumor as well...

While I actually enjoy some programming on DisneyXD, Cartoon Network, and even the nostalgia of Boomerang, I'm disappointed if this is the case, but good news for those who want it. :(

Directv may of had it on a will show up when it goes live list now will it be on D12 or show up on D11 / D10? also is chiller HD on the same list?

Ohmygod TRIO is coming back & in HD!
Brilliant But Cancelled! Crazy Australian cop shows! Old David Letterman reruns!

On a more serious note, I believe most carriage contracts have a clause allowing an out if the programming for that channel changes significantly. So since Disney is turning SoapNet into DisneyJR, Directv and Disney probably renegotiated this portion of their contract. If so, they may have agreed to launch it in HD.
