    I wonder if their awesome reps know about the channels even after this press release :rolleyes:

    Well at least the press release answered my questions. Now I just need to raise my bill by $30 for two channels...what a crock.

    Did the online chat. They sent the hit to both receivers and all is good!

    361 MAVTV - UP
    373 LOGO - UP
    374 FTV - UP
    9468 SPEED-HD - UP
    9475 FX - UP
    9510 - BET-HD - UP

    Oh course I told them my problem was with BET-HD. Glad I did not fix BET-HD earlier!

    Oh.. My wife is mad at me since I had to access the 622 upstairs! She was watching something at the time!

    After being disconnected three times, the last time after 47:26, I did an on-line chat. I reported that channel 205 was in red and requested a re-authorization. Now I have SPEED and FX in HD.

    I'll hold onto AEP until they get BBC WORLD or something else. I'm not thrilled with Showtime because they don't have many hits.

    After 6 calls to clueless CSRs and phone tech support who told me Speed an FX were not available in HD, I tried Online Chat. The tech "reauthorized" my Smart Cards. Now they're all on, and it took 5 minutes.

    In case anyone missed it in the news release above, "FX HD and SPEED HD are located in DISH Network's Classic Silver 200 HD programming package and above" and "FTV HD, Logo and MavTV HD are available in PlatinumHD, an HD add on package".

    For those who got these after reauthorization - any of you have absolute ?

    Is anyone with absolute getting FTV HD, Logo and MavTV HD ? I'd think anything in platinum, we will get - but not the ones that go to silver/gold.

    Interesting!

    These channels did not require a re-hit from Dish
    • FTV HD, Logo and MavTV HD are available in PlatinumHD
    • CMT HD, COMEDY CENTRAL HD, MTV HD, Nickelodeon HD, Spike TV HD and VH1 HD are now available to DISH Network customers who subscribe to Classic Bronze 100 HD and above.

    These channels required a re-hit from Dish - RED
    • FX HD and SPEED HD are located in DISH Network's Classic Silver 200 HD programming package and above
    • BET HD is now available to customers who subscribe to Classic Silver 200 HD and above.

    Based on the above it appears Dish has an issue with authorization with packages in the 'Classic Silver 200 HD and above'.

    I really meant, "same result". :D I sent her to the computer room while I chatted with CSR Mike, and got the expected scowled look. ;)

    I could've gone that route, but I wanted them to know that BET HD was redded out for a week+.

    It "appears" that Absolute customers (like me) seem to be getting "most" that's added to Bronze with HD and to Platinum; but not getting anything added to Silver and Gold. The only question I have is Fox News HD, MTV HD, Nickelodeon HD, and VH1, seem to be in the Bronze package, but still Red on my guide. Should I be getting them? Think I need a re-hit?
