Tonight's Sneak Peak of MHD is brought to you by the DirecTV logo, because that's the only thing showing on the channel right now...

Hey at least there is sound. Wait the video just came on. When will they ever have a commercial besides Mitsubishi DLP TV's? Now D*, Verizon, and Time Warner have this channel, but not Dish....
Crank it up!;)

Be grateful. CMT awards are on and one of those new groups are completely ruining a Hank Williams tune.

Who was on there? Thanks!



I didn't see a whole lot that was on there that interested me except the Red Hot Chili Peppers in concert.

This first night was all rap and the Hip Hop Honors award show. Quality was not that great for the concert scenes. Looked like a lot of compression.

Hmm I love that little "audio" demo (actually I think its a commercial or advertising for the channel) that comes on every once inawhile. My surround system sounds awesome!!

Still not sure why I can't record the graveyard preview. I can only record the morning session.

Watching Alecia Keys Unplugged right now. While there are some hiccips in the program, when it is solid the audio and picture are awesome. I hope the concert tomorrow looks and sound as good if not better.

From what I saw of the concert it looked horrible on D*. Looked much better on CTV via BEV.

Saw it last night. For me in the Pacific Time Zone, it was already on at 10:30pm, even though the guide said it would not start until 11:00pm. Saw the end of a System of a Down concert and a couple of videos (I forgot MTV used to show those!). I did not notice any real compression. I actually thought it looked pretty close to Discovery HD Theatre. Sound was very good as well. I may actually watch this channel when it is full time. I wonder if any of the reality shows will end up here, like Jackass or Cribs?

I hope not. MHD just showing music content would be the best thing for this channel. May even take my attention away from the Tube.

My guess is that it was in Letterbox Crop. Not sure if that is what was given to VH1 to use as a feed.

Did anybody see the clip of Clapton? I wanted to know who was singing alongside of him. I don't recall what song it was, but it occurred right after the program on Springsteen.

My Hr20 just recorded a black screen. I saw the concert for Diana on vh1 but would like to see it in HD. Does anyone know if D* is gonna repeat it? I can't find any schedule for this preview anywhere.

For anyone tring to record this: with the Sneak Peeks the guide data is unreliable and you often can't record through the guide. It was the same with National Geographic. Set up a manual recording instead.
