    Glad to see DIY HD is being added. Any new HD is good news. Any guesses as to when it will launch?? Still hoping for H2,HLN,LMN,FMC etc.

    Anyone with an HR34 "seeing" DIY yet?

    My guess is next week Wednesday. I also think they learned from ION, and decided not to put this channel in test until the ink was DRY on their contracts. :D - So maybe that is why it went in to test on Thursday.

    Oh, HELL YES!!!

    My wife will be very pleased. I've been wanting it too. TCM, BBCA, and DIY within a few months of each other. . . .this has been a very good summer by my lights!

    Anytime an addition is not my top two, it's going to be a little disappointing to me, BUT...

    Two of my Top Six most wanted NATIONAL HD channels in testing... I'll take it! :)

    Finally I can see the awesome DIY shows in HD outside of early mornings on HGTV :D

    The only non HD channel piquing my interest now and again is FMC

    What was the trick for that again? I got my HR34 since the last wave of new channels and wasn't paying attention before.

    TCMHD, BBCAHD, DIYHD, and IONEHD...

    Let's see:

    [table]YEAR|# OF ADDITIONS I CARE ABOUT|CHANNEL
    2012|2 (so far)|TCM-HD & BBCA-HD
    2011|1|AMC-HD
    2010|3|Lifetime-HD, Hallmark Channel HD, Hallmark Movie Channel HD
    2009|1|Comedy Central
    2008|1|ABC Family[/table]
    *2008 and 2010 both brought me an additional channel that I have watched on occasion, but not enough that I'd actually miss them, so I left them out...

    If DIYHD and IONEHD are added this year, 2012 will not only have beaten 2010 (even counting the additional channel I mentioned above) for NATIONAL** HD channel adds in my eyes, but any more additions from my wishlist beyond that will REALLY put it over the top.

    This will potentially be the most NATIONAL HD additions for me in a single year since that first year that D10 went active.

    ** My locals were added in 2010, but for NATIONAL HD additions, 2012 is shaping up to potentially be the best it can be.

    Nope... not exactly. It briefly showed up on DirecTV's website, but taken down.

    IONEHD is still in testing though. I suspect it will come this month when Ion West's channel number is changed.

    Yes... Ion West will be moving to #306 this month, and AXS TV will be moving to another channel at the same time.

    Yes, great for those wanting DIY but another sad exhalation for those of us desiring the addition of H2 HD (a sentiment exacerbated by the interminable wait for HD LIL in the Monterey DMA).

    While not a fan of DIY I'm glad for those who are. Getting more HD beats not getting more HD!

    Endorse this.

    Continual additions means additions are happening. Even if not YOUR channel, additions give more hope for those YOU want.

    Note. YOU does not mean MysteryMan but the generic YOU.
