From our man jediphish:

HD channels formats (video and audio)
This is what lights up on my Elite receiver and TV:

CNN - 1080i DD5.1
ESPN - 720p DD5.1
ESPN2 - 720p DD5.1
NFL - 1080i DD2.0
BTN - 720p DD2.0
TNT - 1080i DD5.1
TBS - 720p DD5.1
A&E - 720p DD2.0
SMTH - 1080i DD5.1
HIST - 720p DD2.0
DSC - 1080i DD5.1
TLC - 720p DD5.1
APL - 1080i DD5.1
SCI - 1080i DD5.1
TWC - 1080i DD2.0
VSGF - 1080i DD2.0
UHD - 1080i DD5.1
HDT - 1080i DD5.1
HDNM - 1080i DD5.1
HDN - 1080i DD5.1

However, we know that UHD actually does 2.0 through the 5.1 active channels, so there could be others.

I left off the broadcast networks, PPV, MLB, ST, and others.


Thanks, jediphish!

Anyone else who wants to add to this list, send a PM to Doug, Earl, Stuart or myself.

Go Packers!
