The first 2 times I tuned to CNN HD, I get heavy pixelation, but it did clear up.

Update! Problem fixed.

Just an FYI, my pixelation was due in part to a bad cable. The cable was replaced and I'm now fully enjoying the additional HD programming.

:D

She looked great in SD so I can't wait to see her in HD when I get home from work in about 30 minutes :-)
Was with D* for over 10 years then switched to the dark-side a few years ago and haven't looked back. I truly enjoy the 50% savings and uninterrupted service

No kidding?

I used to watch her on Fox and Friends every morning, but haven't tuned in for many months.

Shows what I know.

This channel is the surprise to me. Simply put, why would NEWS not have demanded a FNCHD as a part of the sale?
