Nothing in HD so far???

I've already seen a couple of videos that I've seen on MHD in HD.
Why aren't they in HD here, if they are there (MHD)?

Audio is much improved, but no Full screen HD yet.

I have also seen a bunch of these videos on other channels in HD, so they should be able to do it on this channel as well.

Do we know if it's CMT sending them that way or is it D*?

I am frustrated at the lack of HD too, especially since I have seen a bunch of HD country music videos on MHD. I do not understand why the same videos are not in HD on CMTHD. The SD does look good on the channel, but the combination of letterbox and pillarbox for most videos really render a 42" screen pointless.

This is definitely frustration aimed at CMT and not D*.

Yeah I know. It's frustrating to have a show simulcast when both channels are supposed to be HD. Hope they fix that soon. I managed to notice it when I was checking the guide or I would have DVRed 327 also
