I have the Dish Remote Access App on my RAZR. Yesterday I was out, so I used the app to record the last round of the US Open. I live in West Michigan so I chose to record WOOD TV 8 (008-0), which is a high-def station. I get home and start watching the recording and it is in standard def so I open the app again and see that WOOD is not listed as HD on the app. However, it lists another NBC station from another market (KRBC) as being in HD and available to record.

Am I missing something?

Edit: none of my locals show as HD, even though they all are

I live in Grand Rapids and when I click on the Dish app on my Android phone, I can see those stations listed as well. If you click on the HD tab in the upper right corner of the app it should purge the guide and will show just the local channels. If you click watch live TV in the upper left it should load correctly allowing you to watch live TV or set a recording in high definition, at least this is the way it works for me.

That's the issue. When I click on the HD tab, then WOOD and our other locals don't show up - the app thinks they are SD stations.

And in addition to our stations, I'm seeing stations from another market - St. Louis I think.
