    I think you mean TCM HD. As is Turner Classic Movies HD.

    Agreed. I have been saying they have been installing legacy for years. Short term thought over long term as they were trying to avoid the cost up front.

    its only a bid and not final..though it'll be hard to sneeze off the 25 Billion Bid E* has on the table...I have clearwire and it aint so great..I clock better speeds through my Time Warner modem at times than while on Clear..Is that why the bid is on the table to acquire Clear? hah...they can have it..

    4:46pm saw a few posts on google news with Verizon trying to trump the bid by offering to buy the Clearwire portion..

    I posted this in another thread because I thought it was this thread. Sorry new site woes on mobile.


    I had to add Bloomberg HD to my favorites.
    On one receiver Bloomberg SD remained (HR24) and another there was no Bloomberg at all (SD or HD) (H24).

    Also noticed WMGM 40 NBC from Atlantic City is now in HD also. So I have 2 HD NBC's now, Philly and AC down the shore!

    It's been of great interest. And I'd imagine all screens of EPiX would come in should it finally become a part of the channel lineup of DirecTV.

    I also would like to see added to the lineup FEARnet. (HD in all cases.)

    My biggest interest has been in seeing the current slate of linear SD which have a feed in HD get added in that format by DirecTV. But certain interruptions happen; and a number of times, they're welcomed. For example, it's necessary and good to focus on delivering the regional-sports programmers. It was good that DirecTV last year added both beIN Sport HD and Disney Junior HD. So, I'd be welcoming with EPiX and FEARnet (all that are applicable) in the format of high def. Just keep bringing in more of the current "Missing HD" like my No. 1, Reelz Channel HD.

    Randomly, in between posts. Much like the ads in DirecTV's on screen guide.

    I do not see any ads.

    I would like to see Universal Sports in HD prior to the start of the Giro d'Italia.

    I also see the ad between post 301 & 302 at the top of page 11.

    At least it's not as intrusive as the competitors site. They put ad's in between quotes an inside of posts. I've never seen a site with so many ad's before. This site looks pretty clean. Color wise it reminds me of the FIOS IMG 1.9 guide when it came out.

    Anyway, any chance we could get Oxygen HD so we could see BEST INK? How about FXM HD, The Hub HD, We HD, Sprout HD or Style HD?

    I usually see an ad after the first post on a given page.

    on behalf of those of us that were here LONG before the site re-do...if you were signed in (on the old engine) you didn't get any ads at all. If you were a guest..you did...Guess thats now passe.

    I see the ads, as was stated above, between the first and second post on every page.

    I also miss the dropdown menu that allowed you to navigate directly to any of the other forums. Now you have to back out to the "DirecTV Products and Services" layer in order to get to the other D* forums unless it is linked explicitly linked at the top of the page.

    I'm not too impressed with the change so far.

    Maybe the "paid" DBSTalk club members are spared the ads, while the non-paying bourgeois like myself are exposed to the advertising content the same as the unregistered guests.

    Hi HarleyD.

    Look at the top of the page. There is what appears to be a magnifying glass icon just to the left of the "Forums" tab.

    Click on that and all other forums pop up in a "Quick Navigation" box.

    Hope this helps.

    Cheers,
    cmasia
