Is 504W working right now for anyone? I have tried refreshing and called D* and they told me that it is not available right now.

Thanks, Coach. But I think the best way to compare is to compare the same content. Only way to do this is record each & compare PQ. Very tough to compare different content.

Also, if record each, note how much drive space is freed up after deleting content. MPEG2 content should free up more space than MPEG4. Problem is we only see percentage, not actual space freed up. So best to record content of long duration, or record two sequential 2 hour programs off each of the HBO HD feeds, then delete. JMO.


That's what I did actually, I just meant I tried the comparison twice. I did forget to check the size difference though.

I am now getting HBOL and am trying a reboot of the system to get 504 back.

It didn't work.

I had a CSR remove my HBO access and put it back on again to fix the problem

Do I need to refresh my services? The issue I am having is that 504 HBOWHD is not showing up under the guide for Movies. However it shows under All Channels and under HD Channels.

What does everyone think?

I am not sure I am the best person to judge PQ, but I will say that the surgery scars on Skin-a-max are just awful in HD. Some things should remain blurry.
