    Not that it makes much of a deal, but is it 1080p?

    CSN Mid-Atlantic 629 has been available for at least 3 weeks. On my system there are 2 channel 629's. The first one listed is HD, and the second one is SD.:D

    I needed a new componet rack to go beside my 57" CRT HDTV. So we walk into CC and my wife points to a nice 60" Sony XBR and says "Why don't you just get that?" I was stunned.

    But I can't decide what to get, so I still haven't gotten anything.:(

    I'm just looking for 643 FSN Southwest and those San Antonio Spurs in HD. We'll have to win it all again this year with honest refs.:D

    The interesting thing about the RSN's that are already on 24/7 in HD is the channel lineup is indicating HD on the overflow channel.

    So for CSN-Chicago, the regular HD channel is 640 and the overflow channel is 680. that means all games on those dual numbered channels will be in HD.

    Good quote... ;)

    But seriously...the first three TP's turned on this morning/late last night, I believe. Check your signal meters...

    Just get the 60" and think about it you have 30 days at CC but the wife saying get it is a much more limited time offer!!

    When you get it, you'll like it. 629 is broadcasting 1080i. I guess I should rephrase that to transmitting, or spot-beaming, or whatever.

    Yes. Sort of. But I don't think two of the channels really should count. MHD and NGC.
