    If you mean the HD Extra pack, yes you can get it free for three months.

    I recall "Duel" on HDNet Movies, Steven Spielberg's first movie that was "made-for-TV, in it's 4:3 OAR and it looked quite good. I have yet to see anything on Hallmark Movie Channel that looks similar. In fact, "You Can't Run Away From It", OAR 2.35:1 according to IMDB entry, looked washed out.

    I can excuse WGN-HD for not having a lot of HD content right now and applaud them not stretching SD, but a channel in the HD Extra pack, and an alleged movie channel to boot, shouldn't be allowed that.

    Ah, never easy.

    You can try the help link at the bottom then troubleshooting. There is a set of error messages there, including the 721 message. The link is there.

    Or search for "refresh services" in the overall search at the top right anytime in the page.

    Navigating the DirecTV webpage is a major pain.

    I think you might find it easiest to go to support.directv.com (the new Answer Center) and search for "ext.721." Follow the search to get to the support page for ext. 721 and you can refresh your receivers from there.

    Patience, I have it on good authority that AMC will be coming. Maybe not in time for mad men but still...

    That's really great news. With AMC I will have all channels I watch in HD and certainly a totally happy customer. Mad Men looks gorgeous in HD and doesn't deserve the low quality SD letterboxed.

    Suggestion for Directv is to put this as a menu item in their receivers connected to the internet. The reciever is already tied to your account. Use your remote click on a button to refresh service, receiver sends out internet message to tell the Directv server to refresh your account.
