    i'm sure with the re-alignment of a lot of the college football teams we'll see a few new channel start-ups..but they may have to wait in line along with Pac-12 and Longhorn...

    Well...in your opinion which looks better?

    BTW IFC is 1080i on DirecTV and from there distributor AMC Networks.

    cypherx, you posted last week about the same thing with the favorites list when we received LMN, ID & TV Land in HD, in case you didn't catch his post.

    Looking forward to FMCHD,REELZHD,TVGHD and also EPIX. Would like to at least have the option to subscribe to EPIX separately.

    I saw it. Just thought it was weird that my DVR and non DVR behaved differently. This time they are on the same software version.

    So I wonder if any of these new adds will be coming to the iPad app any time soon? Seems another positive for going HD is the potential to make it available for live streaming.

    Depends on who and how they price themselves, but given the greed, I'm sure you are right.

    Before they fix the favorites list they probably should like at why it doesn't hide the sd channel when they add the HD channel and you have hide sd channels in preferences.

    I was carping to my wife the other day about Cooking Channel. I come home and read this thread and then bam....

    Clearly, the TV gods were on my side.

    The picture quality incidentally is not amazing, but compared to the hideous SD feed, it's a huge upgrade.

    I'm a little happy with DirecTv right now.

    Absolutely. As a teen of the '80s, when summertime came 'round and school was out, daytime TV had lots of game shows. So it's a fun nostaligia trip to go over to GSN and watch some Card Sharks, Press Your Luck and Super Password. Would be great to watch them in non-blurro-vision.

    Keep in mind not everything on there is HD. looking through the guide, I saw some episodes of Good Eats that were filmed before he converted, and he started filming in HD earlier than most Food Network shows.

    :confused: Except for the RSN alternates that have both SD and HD, my SD channels are all hidden now. It might not have happened as soon as the HD channel went live, but the SD channels were hidden by that evening.

    Anyone else notice that H2 is being delivered with a 1080i signal? I thought all A&E related networks were broadcast in 720p.

    With Headline News HD now available, if DirecTV were to add at least one more linear HD of a cable-news programmer, in 2013, which do you think would make for the best choice . . . ?

    1. Bloomberg Television HD
    2. One or both of C-Span HD and C-Span 2 HD
