    Since Dish Network will not tell us when the locals are available and there is no easy way to get the information. I thought it would be nice to ask all of you to help keep us informed.

    Can you post the minute you know if your area has HD locals available. ! (not OTA)

    Maybe we can use this as a single thread to keep people informed of the rollout

    Thank you for the information

    I just went back and read the last 4 uplink threads and after reading 85 appends I could not find a single one that talked about HD locals.

    This is a subject that has had many threads which means that many people are interested on this subject and I think a single place where this information is updated will help allot of people who are searching of the subject. The title is meant to be an eye catcher.

    JohnH is usually ahead of the curve.. The current Uplink Activity thread started with a post about Washington DC locals being uplinked (not available). And as E* releases cities expect the press releases to appear in the HD forum. Such things of importance are likely to be 'sticky' at the top of the forum.

    Also don't forget to check the HD forum. E* HD conversation belongs there.

    You claim to have read the last four uplink reports. Of the last four uplink reports, THREE talk about HD locals. In all three of those, they are CLEARLY labeled as "HD Local" so you must have been reading something else. Plus, there are multiple replies in each thread about them. The current uplink thread talks about HD locals and it is pinned to the top of the forum:

    http://www.dbstalk.com/showthread.php?t=53811

    In addition, all of the following uplink threads talk about HD locals:

    Thank you

    I did read them and I missed the first one where it talked about Washington, each of the links you just sent me has at least 3 pages worth of data to read. I was hoping for an easier way for all of us to find out. The link that BFG provided me is what I was looking for.

    They are supposedly available now. Press release says tomorrow. Does this solve your problem about wanting to keep your 921?

    I'm happy for you (except for the wait thing). I'm waiting for them to make some announcement about offering distant HD networks.
