    I'm up in Sacramento and am seeing signals in the upper 70s-mid-80s. I haven't noticed anyone from northern CA reporting numbers in the mid-upper 90s like a lot of people have reported.

    DirecTV has been saying the 19th for a while now... but that could simply be the beginning of new packages... it certainly wouldn't be the first time HD channels became available before they were said to be available (though it's rare!).

    Also, DirecTV could go ahead and start simulcasting MPEG2 HD channels in MPEG4 at any time since they were never announced to begin with.

    A DirecTV CSR that posts here has stated that the LA HD-DNS will be going MPEG4 tomorrow (I was thinking it was today last night, but he said the 17th)... which could mean that these will be the first channels from D10...

    Well I'm not going to "deny to see the truth" any longer. I was up all night expecting HD before the party tonight. D having a party for HD Channels they don't have for everyone is stupid at best IMHO :raspberry

    Well, they still have a few hours I guess but I'm not hopeful....I agree that it'll be a pretty lame party without the new HD :zzz:

    Given the money they will spend on this party, they could very well have a fiber link to the feeds. I guess they will show something that looks like the feeds whether they are coming via satellite or not.

    And for all we know, they may become live on the 19th. I'm just disappointed that we've worked ourselves into a posting frenzy, only to be let down time and again. And yes, I was on here late last night, and still got up at 6:00 to see if they were on yet. :(

    If they promote the channels like that tonight and dont launch them, i dont think that looks good. Not just to us but to a lot of other people

    I'm sure we all remember last week when we all starting seeing the Starz HD, Cinemax HD charges show up in the Recent Activity. Well, I am in Louisville and we do not have the locals in HD, yet. I noticed today that on that recent activity list it should HD Locals. Anyone else without HD locals get that hit. Could it mean we are due to get our HD locals with this roll out?:shrug:

    Actually, the channels could be uplinked and shown via Engineering Mode to the party... that's more likely than a fiber link...

    I figure they may turn them on after the football games.

    It would be ultra lame to not turn any of them on tonight. :nono2:

    I think it would be silly that they would have channels at the party not available to the customers. How does that look....er we have these channels, but you cant have them yet, even though they are here on this tv.
