Watched the Wandering Golfer at St. Andrews yesterday afternoon and it looked really good. It's a good show that I'll probably spend more time watching now that I can catch it HD.

I did a search for Wandering Golfer and didn't come back with anything on 229-1. What time was it on? I'm only seeing the shows on 232.

Thanks

Too bad some of the shows like curb appeal, house hunters and house hunters international are apparently not scheduled on the new channel. They must not be produced in HD.

House Hunters not in HD? Wow, thats my wife's favorite show. Anyone know if there are plans to release a few more of the parent channels shows on the HD equivalent channel?

I lost about 28 hd channels the last couple of days, including this one. Is it my system or are they off-air?

Problem resolved- signal strength on 103(B) went to 0, called D* tech who recommended re-installing antenna/dish (thru HR20 menu). It Worked!

Looks like a guide data issue on HGTV-HD: "First Home" first aired 7/27/08, says it's HD but it's actually stretch-o-vision. Boo!

Whats even better is that I noticed a lot of shows on Food Network and HGTV are showing at dates that are ahead of when the 1st aired date is: i.e. show on 8/1 and 1st air date is 8/15.


Looks like someone hosed the date data!
