As of 7am CST this morning no NGC. Is there a special time they turn it on? I'm really looking forward to seeing this channel. Also, TiVo's channel list was updated last night to include NGC and DHD. That's pretty good timing on Tribune/TiVos end.

That would probably be Discovery HD; the real deal instead of the demo?

Like you can record Discovery HD on a Tivo. :D

(well I guess you could if you downconverted the video)

Some times when E* adds a channel it wont show up on some receivers right away, so you'll have to pull the card. I think I only experienced this once a few years ago when E* added Style.

What a bummer... for a few hours anyway. I remember that DirecTV used to start new channels in the early morning . Oh well. I waited this long....I guess I can wait a bit more.

One would think new channels would be a part of the 3 a.m. download. I just pulled my smartcard and....

...getting 5 min d/l

...waiting

...still waiting

....about 1 minute to go

and...

Ta-da, ka-ching!!!! Yippee!!! Hooray!!!

I now have NTGEO on 186!!!!

Yea!!!!

[Post-inaugural edit]

It's BEAUTIFUL -- except for the bright
yellow bug that greatly distracts the
eye and detracts from the beauty of
the picture.

Already complaining, never satisfied.

Oh well

No way, Steve! NGC has real actual perfessional TV programming -- so far.

The bug is big enough to be a PiP window. It looks like the yellow 'click-here' highlight on the Dishplayer. Oh God, will I ever get used to it??? It ruins the picture for me. Maybe if I tape a piece of black paper over it...

Looks like they are doing the 3 hr repeat programming cycle like some of the Disc. channels. Uh-oh, paid programming from 3 a.m. to 9 a.m. :eek:

Is the bug on the bottom right. The FOX burn in on the left was looking so lonely, it needs a friend. :)

Right. Bottom right.

Reminiscent of the old History channel bug - it was huge!

I've been trying to sample some of the
NGC programming, but all I can see is
the big ugly yellow bug. Can someone
please tell me what the current program
is about? :D

Ouch! That's a Texas size bug. Static, not transparent. That's going to hurt some peoples TV. I thought I saw it fade out, but maybe it was a commercial break.
