    Just wonderin' if there is any new news on HD locals coming? I live in the Spokane, WA area and i know we're supposed to be in the next group of cities to get our local channels in HD. I got my 622 and DISH 1000 ready to go!! :p

    I think we are all waiting. San Francisco hopefully will be in the next batch. I imagine they will come through just about the time that the networks start their summer reruns. Now is when I could use it. Having only the OTA for network inputs on the 622 is proving to be more limiting than I thought it would.

    Looks like "D" is adding 7 or 8 new HD locals. Dish is taking the back seat again.

    Well, Dish is very busy getting Echostar 10 up and running, my guess is that we willnot see any more HD locals until it is all settled in and they make all the channel moves that they are planning over to that satellite.

    So, on that note, anyone have any idea how long it typically takes to get a new satellte configured based on past launches??

    I do not foresee too many new channels being added untill the E*10 shuffle works its way out. Maybe some new internationals at 121.

    I just finished the install on my 622. When the installer was on the phone getting the reciever authorized he asked when the SF locals would be up. He was told that it would be at the end of the month.

    That seems a little soon since that is just next week, but there is hope.

    No, not obviously.

    They've pretty much had their way with 129 and 61.5, notice nothing new has been added, there's no room left mainly.

    The next stop is E10 @ 110

    Then after that is 119k

    If the channels are going to be added in May as some say, I don't think it can be E10. I don't think it is ready - right ?
