    Just give me any FSN, I don't care. I just want to watch some more HD football. At least we were able to watch the ASU v. WSU game on CSNC in HD this past weekend.

    Also I want the cities that don't have their local HD CW to get their local HD CW.

    That isn't the reason for the delay in NGHD. Since it is a Fox owned channel it's native resolution is 720p and will be 720p once it gets lit up. D* won't be upconverting it to 1080i. They don't for any of the other 720p channels like ESPNHD or ESPN2HD.

    FSN Southwest, ESPN in MPEG 4 (ESPN 2 as well for that matter) National Geographic, AMC HD for the upcoming "Monster Fest" would be sweet (I don't think AMC is even on the upcoming list though :( ) Chiller HD for Halloween would be very cool (This is a Q1 '08 launch however I believe :( )

    If we get these I'd be happy:

    1. Food
    2. FX (Don't think we will get it till later in the month)
    3. National Geographic
    4. HGTV (Don't think we will get this till later in the month either)
    5. MGM
    6. As many RSN's as possible.


    Also on a personal note would like the Des Moines Market to get the local's in HD.

    I am thinking MGM HD this week, since Zap2It already has listings for it on 255.

    the RSn's are a must. why they weren't already added for all the markets is ridiculous. who cares about HD channels with no content yet?

    If you are refering to my post, what I was stating is that Zap2It DOES show content on the channel since last Saturday. Also, the http://www.mgm.com/ website lists a link on the bottom to http://www.mgmhd.com/ which states the channel launching on D* in October, so that was my rationale.

    I really thought NGC-HD would be up by now...that's probably the one I want the most....
    I would actually take ESPN & ESPN2 HD's in MPEG 4 over anything else!

    FX. Show the rest of "Damages" in HD. Or at least not windowboxed.

    No such luck. Food Network HD is different programming and Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives is not one of the shows.

    Here's this week's schedule:

    http://www.foodnetwork.com/food/hdtv/0,2857,FOOD_26756,00.html

    Also, I notice that BBC America is now running promos that they'll be adding HD in 2008, so hopefully that'll be coming after the first of the year.
