G4 is no longer relevant. We'll have to see how the new channel goes next year.

H2 needs to go HD. There always seems to be something good on it every time I check it but I don't watch it because it's SD.

If you have a decent internet connection, check out their VOD page. The programs you're interested in may be available in HD on it.

VOD is viewable on your TV.

On your HRxx, go to H2 On Demand on channel #1271. Nothing but HD content...

Noticed a new software update on my HR22-100 early this morning. Any idea what the update was for?? Thought maybe some new logos (230,264,289,304,639 etc) would have been added, but no such luck.

Since I originally sat down (Jan 2010) and figured out what HD channels I would still much like to see added D* has added 4+5 (AMC, WGN America, BBCA, TCM + my 5 Rochester, MN LiLs - just today!) and deleted 1 (G4). So one way or another they have addressed 10 of 14 in nearly 3 years. Pretty good. Getting so close!!!

My remaining HD desires (in order):

RFD-TV
IFC
Outdoor Channel

and for the Mrs:

QVC

Kevin

My top 5 wishlist: 1) Free MRV HR to HR 2) Fix Channels I Receive so that it is accurate 3) > 50 SeriesLink 4) Usage of both internal and external drives concurrently 5) Support for other video providers as DoD (i.e. Hulu, CBS)   

DirecTV HR21-200, 2008 (DirecTV anniversary gift)
DirecTV HR20-100 (2TB eSATA), 2007
DirecTV since 1995

I'll give you We and Lifetime as self-declared channels for women, but when did Bloomberg and Headline News (now HLN) declare themselves channels for men? And classifying the Cooking Channel as a service for women might also be considered a misconception of the target demographic.

Even if we get no more new HD this year I think 2012 should be considered a good one for DirecTV HD customers. Not a ton of adds but some good quality.

Even though its not channels we also have to thank D* for all of the new HD VOD that we now have including HD for channels that still are in sd like H2 and Cooking.
