For years and years I've dreamed of a quality music channel in HD w/ DD -- now we have it!! :joy: :joy: :joy:

MHD commercials are worth watching just for the effects. Goo Goo Dolls coming on now. Never heard them before, but the sound quality is awesome.


I'm recording it; my wife is a huge fan. We saw them live last year, and they're really good. Finally another 24x7 HD channel! :)

Closed captioning confirmed--well timed--and on music! Impressive. :) And...Justin Timberlake is on my TV, moaning that he's bringing sexy back, so now I must burn the otherwise loyal TV. I'll go start the bonfire.


This would be the one they close-caption....

I'm anxious to get home and check it out.

So should we start taking bets on when the majority of MHD programming has nothing to do with music? ;)

The Goo Goo Dolls playing outside in the cold air in Breckenridge, CO is great.

I'll take that bet. The problem with most of the music stations is that they only have a limited selection for content (yes, a lot of music over the years, but 24x7 for YEARS is a lot to fill). With MHD, they have 3 genres to pull from.

And besides, we're going to keep them straight, aren't we? :lol:

Finally a new HD channel that I'll actually watch! Even the SD Goo Goo Dolls video on right now looks great.

I've already got the Dixie Chicks Storytellers and Reba/Kelly Crossroads set to record. And I see tomorrow they're airing the uncut version of Green Day's Storytellers. Can't wait for that.

What a concept - a music channel that plays MUSIC videos!

Hey, didn't MTV start out this way? And VH1? And MTV2? And CMT? Anyone starting a poll until the first episodes of "The Real World" start showing up? :rolleyes:

The already brought it back. Bon Jovi did an Unplugged earlier this year. It's being shown later today.

I set up Bruce Springteen & Dixie Chicks Storytellers, which are older shows, but will hopefully look good.


I did not see the Dixie Chicks. However, I did catch Springsteen when they had this on preview and it was awesome! Lynyrd Skynyrd was also awesome!

Video killed the RADIO star. I remember - I saw the debut of MTV, then had to wait another year before my small time cable company decided they'd add it to their HUGE tier of 45 channels.

I get the channel not available message when trying to tune to 332. It doesn't show up on my channel lists. I have TC+ and get all the other new HD channels.

I went to the DTV web site and sent a reset--no effect

Edit: I did a menu reset on the HR20 and now get this channel.

We got it pretty early after release IIRC.

I always wanted one of those little stickers to put on your FM receiver to mark where to pickup the simulcast....those were the days... :lol:
