    I just upgraded to the H20. Is there a way to be able to enter a channel number and go directly to the channel in your favorites. For example, if I enter 640, I want the Comcast Sports HD channel, but the H20 goes to the non HD channel.

    I know this works for my HD locals - enter the channel # and get the HD version if available. No idea on ch. 640, maybe it's a guide coding issue for D*????

    Create a favorite list and omit the channels you don't wish to tune to.

    You can still tune directly to channels excluded from the favorties list, so if the box is defaulting to the SD version of 640, that's what he would get when entering the channel directly.

    Is this one of those two channels with the same channel number?
    One SD and the other HD?

    I'm guessing that's the case. I'm not in his market so I don't get the HD version of 640, but the D* site lists Comcast SportsNet Chicago (the online guide shows 640 as the channel number) with a 24/7 HD version for the Chicago market.

    Yes, both the SD and HD channels are 640. The SD channel is first. It is not in my favorites either. I can get away with it for the locals becase I use the dash.

    640 HD should be listed first.

    I have the same problem with the SD channel and the HD channel on 622 and 625 Yes and SNY. You omit the SD channel and direct input will still bring you to the SD channel and not the HD.
