    The coverage on Channel 361 is excellent. Far & away this is a shining moment for DTV!

    Great job!

    Wow, amazing. Directv has been doing really good with this storm, getting the message out at least!

    Thank you DirecTV this was a great service. We are miles away, but the local news is always better than the networks. They cannot have the same knowledge as the networks.

    Great work and a proof that we have the best with DTV

    Thanks to DirecTV from those of us who know people or have rleatives and firends in harms way. We appreciate the chance to keep close track of what is going on there during this terrible storm.

    I like how CNN has their CNN-HD logo up in the lower left hand corner of the screen but they're not in HD.

    I am enjoying this so much more than the cable news channels.
    Be sure to thank DirecTV directly by the contact us link on their website (I dont have the posts to be able to post the URL) so the right people know how happy we are for this move so they do it again in the future when major events happen.

    Forum posts aren't going to go toward official decisions in programming lineups. :)

    Way to go DirecTV this just shows that you care about your customers.

    I also see there is an other channel with just emergency info slides.

    I do not see this stuff on the other big providers.

    Just like many other HD channels, CNN has their HD bug up 24x7 whether the program they're showing is in HD or not.

    So for fun I tried to tune to both 361 and 363 on a SD Tivo DVR. Presto, but channels coming in.

    I have been unable to view either on HR-21 from the beginning.

    Does 361 keep freezing and going to black every once in awhile?

    Yes, breakup is due to the storm being overhead.

    I hope someday DirecTV will put up a channel featuring local news from all over the country, and use it like they are doing today, when there is breaking news.

    I know Gannett talked about doing that a few years ago, but it never happened.

    It would be perfect for DirecTv to do it because they already have all access to the local feeds.

    Wonder if that is on WDSU's end or DirecTV's.

    They should do this for every hurricane since people evacuate and it lets them see the local news broadcast - rather than Anderson Cooper trying to make another name for himself.

    I can get 363 but no 361 on my HR20-700, just a *boink* and channel not available message....


    any ideas?
