Feeling of Deja Vu. I just answered this somewhere.

HDNET runs a 10 minute test pattern @ 08:00EDT on Tuesdays.
That's all I've ever heard of.

Ah thank you! I'll try to remember it (even though I'm on 148 instead of 61.)

Not gonna happen - 110/119 space is WAY too valuable.

Sure would like to see it on 148 tho.

they should get rid of the demo channel. there is no compeling content on that channel. with about a half an hour a day of original content that is shown for months at a time, they would be better off with starz, cinemax, tmc, tnt, or bravo that shows more hd than the demo channel.

i don't believe that anyone with an hd set has watch that channel for more than five minutes.

It is primarily for retailers----and people witha Laurie Farkas obsession.

Yeah, they haven't updated the loop since 2002. It's good for the first 10 minutes when you hook up an HD receiver and that's about it......

I STILL have Sharks Under Glass recorded on my 921 as a MUCH better HD Demo. Seeing my guests faces when that great white shark leaps 10 feet out of the water is priceless (we live 1.5 miles from the Atlantic Ocean and NONE of them want to swim in the ocean anymore after seeing it....)
