Beastmaster is in letterbox, which would seem to indicate it's an HD show--strange they aren't showing it in HD. (At least they're not showing it in stretch-o-vision. TNT/History Channel/TBS, are you paying attention?)

BTW, could they make their on-screen logo (with the Ghost Hunters promo) any more conspicuous?


Indeed, on both counts....

Don't get me started. ECW is hardly science fiction....:nono:

amazing how it was just in time to MISS the last episode of Eureka.


Ya, I thought that too - but, the 2 pieces of good news here is that SG:A just started it's sason and Eureka just got upped for a 3rd season, so not only will we get next years' in HD, but there will actually *be* a next year. :)

Sweet! Now all I need is FX HD. Everything else is just icing on the cake from there on out.

Re: the letterboxed Beastmaster, even if they don't have it in HD, shouldn't it be widescreen upconverted?

It will be interesting to see how Bionic Woman runs? It better not be letterboxed! Finally, we now have a chance to catch some re-runs of current primetime shows in HD if we forget to record (or our DVR does), or if we have a priority conflict.

Agreed. I really like Ghost Hunters, but that Halloween episode last year with CM Puke or whatever his name is was terrible.

Ghost Hunters promo??? What are you talking about, I didn't see this. Perhaps they need to make it bigger. :lol: :nono2:

Over breakfast I tried tuning in SciFi-HD, USA-HD and Bravo-HD (the main three from the current bunch in which my wife and I have interest) and none of them came in at all. That's rather surprising to me as the previous batch all came in without a hitch last week. Oh well, hopefully it'll be cleared up by tonight. We can't wait to start watching Stargate: Atlantis, Battlestar Gallactica, Monk, Dead Zone and Psych in HD!

The list of OTHER programs on the channel that are not science fiction...well, you don't really wanna go there.

Equipment includes a buncha stuff that I no longer have interest in detailing

:nono2: For all those Battlestar Galactica fans don't look for the new season till early spring...seems they delayed it a bit longer,:hurah: But on a positive note we can look forward to the New Battlestar movie in November called the Razor in all its glorious HD.....
