Never believe anything you read on Wikipedia, especially when it's information about DirecTV and it conflicts with what you read here.
This is according to the wikipedia site ????? Hope its true[/B]

So how many times have I said it's just the same guide data for both HD and SD channels and that DirecTV doesn't carry the HD channel yet?
At least one more time than you already have.

...and by the way, Wheel and Jeopardy are pretty impressive in HD. I hadn't watched these shows in years and I started again, to see what they did. They've revamped everything to take advantage of the higher resolution.
Basically they don't use the wide parts of the screen for much- the same feed is used for SD with the outer edges cropped. Still, the picture quality is quite good, especially when seen over-the-air, and the sets look excellent.
Lotta wide shots on Vanna, though. It's not 1986 (when I saw Ms. White on a Boston book signing tour) and no one looks the same now as we did then.
For what its worth, I rode an elevator with Vanna White at the Las Vegas Hilton last year when they were shooting WOF there. She still looks great and you could bounce a quarter off her behind. (A little OT but had to be said.)
