    Maybe it does already and I have no change something, not sure. If not, when will the H20 get an upgrade to autotune to the HD version of a channel? Just curious if anyone has any more info.

    If you are talking about it changing to the SD version instead of the HD version it should be soon. It has been fixed in the last couple of CE updates. So as soon as it goes national it will be fixed.

    I thought it already does this, since the first channel (except for about two) are the HD channels and the bottom is the SD channel.

    For instance:

    623 NESN HD
    623 NESN SD

    They have the same channel number but, the first 623 is the HD channel. So if you set autotune to 623 it will go to the HD channel since that is before the SD channel.

    Hopefully this goes national soon, its very odd that some channels on the H20 are in the proper order, but most have the SD first, then the HD second.

    Last CE was early october

    This is what is supposed to happen, but currently does not (atleast for the H20). I am anxiously awaiting the update so that typing in a channel auto-tunes to the HD instead of the SD.

    Where and or how do you set 'autotune' that you mentioned above for an H20????
    On my H20's I get the following when I punch in 622:

    622 YES SD
    622 YES HD

    Obviously, one would not want to have to hit the channel up to get the HD.

    It is a problem with the national release software. It has been fixed with the last couple of CE updates and will be fixed with the next national release update. Hopefully it will not be to much longer until the next update.
