    I turned on the new guide channel last night and noticed that it had Travel Channel HD channel 277. I quickly went to see if indeed it was added and there is only 1 TC 277 and it's in SD not HD. Am I to assume it's coming soon? Also what happened to ESPN Classics, YES extra cam HD and NBAHD that were all on last week? :confused:

    I'm in CT if that will halp answer the regional sports answers.

    Thanks in advance

    He's definitely right, it definitely indicates Travel Channel as being in HD. I have no idea why.

    I'm not sure what you mean by "new guide channel."

    It's not new, it's the guide channel, channel 100. It says Travel Channel with the HD icon next to it.

    It may be coming soon.

    also Altitude HD went from part time game only to full.

    ESPN Classic was removed from basic packages, it can now only be viewed if you have Premier or Sports Pack. ESPNU was added to the basic packages in its place. You should now be able to view ESPNU, but again ESPN Classic will not be vieweable unless you have Sports Pack.

    What is this some sort of response to losing Versus? We need to lose more channels :uglyhamme :uglyhamme :uglyhamme :uglyhamme :uglyhamme :uglyhamme :uglyhamme :uglyhamme :uglyhamme :uglyhamme :uglyhamme :uglyhamme :uglyhamme :uglyhamme :uglyhamme :uglyhamme :uglyhamme

    Technically not lost just swapped as ESPNU used to be only available in the Sports Pack.

    I know that's the official word about ESPNC, but I still get it w/o the Sports pack. Anyone else still getting it w/o SP?

    This probably has to do with your receviers not getting the authorizations properly. If you were without service or the units we unplugged then your card would not have received the authorizations for the change.

    Let's keep this thread on topic. There are other threads for general HD channel discussion.

    That could be true, but why am I getting ESPNU and NBAHD? Didn't that authorization move them from the Sports Pack to Choice Xtra?

    Also, I'm still not clear on what the OP meant by Travel HD in the guide. My guide doesn't list it.

    Channel 100 does have mistakes. For example, MLB Network appears to be SD only, but it's not. Time will tell about the Travel Channel.

    Yup, I just checked. The HD logo is next to Travel Channel.

    Please, let this not be a fluke.

    This is the only channel I want. Once we get this channel in HD, I'll be one happy customer.

    Woohoo, we can finally see Andrew Zimmerrn eat bull testicles in HD!

    (BTW, I do like his show & a few others on Travel Channel.)
