    Nice to hear - but 1 question....is the enitre Fresno area market NOT getting PBS HD? Just those residing in Clovis/Fresno? Or will those of us 35-odd miles south (Visalia) that are in said "market" get it, too?

    Sorry, I was being facetious when I said that. I go to Clovis often and had to put a call out to my posse up there. :D The entire DMA would get it, including Visalia. By the way, does the Visalia Oaks baseball team still exist?

    I don't know how many wrestling fans there are on here, but I was hoping to be able to watch Friday Night Smackdown in HD. Now that I finally have an HD receiver (got it in Feburary) I think I'm just going to skip the non-HD channels for WWE programming.

    I believe Satelliteracer indicated 99s (perhaps Spaceway 2?), but I don't know what transponder. I get an excellent signal on a number of 99s transponders in Columbia (100 on 4 of them, in the 90s on numerous others).

    There are others that are better at tracking this sort of thing. All I know is that I get to have a fully HD tailgating experience now. And it's really things like this that matter in life. :D

    Is there any news about HD locals for Bakersfield, CA? I'm a DISH Network subscriber, but have been considering switching to DirecTV. Of course, I ain't gonna do that til I see HD locals.

    How will we know when the HD locals become available in Huntsville, AL over the next couple of weeks? I currently get a few over the AM21 and I assume I can get rid of that when they all come on line. Will I get notified somehow or should I periodically rescan? Where will the channels be found in the lineup? Thanks

    Channels will replace the SD versions of the same channel number and you'll have to 're-add' them if you don't have the SD versions already in your custom list.

    They'll just show up, no need to do a re-scan, ala OTA channels.

    I'd be happy to get SD locals in Charlottesville, VA. The clock is running on my 2 year commitment. I'm outta here if none by February. Anyone know if there are plans to add it with the new sat launch?
