I wouldn't expect Chiller in HD, at least at first. Maybe once DirecTV has FINALLY reached that point of capacity they've been bragging about for who knows how long. LOL Chiller itself should appear on March 1st, and I'm guessing on a low channel number.

D* could decide to not let anyone know about anything and just dump it on you when it happens.
Rememer you are in the minority here, 99% of the subs have NO IDEA what D* is doing or do they care, as long as thier TV works when they turn it on.

relax, the channels will come in due time, nothing will happen till at least the 1stof the two sats are up and been tested and operational.

As for where Chiller will be, no one knows at this time, but I would guess it would be somewhere from 201-325.

Someone asked about what programming will be on what sats, that is at D*'s discression, they can move channels from one sat to another as they need.

I haven't seen the advertising for the Chiller channel,but,there is some info at the following link. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chiller_(TV_channel) According to some of the info listed at this link,it states that Chiller will be on channel 257 on D*.Chiller has also started their own website at this link. http://www.chillertv.com/ There is no info available from the official site yet,but,at least there is an official site to check out in the future.

I have never seen a release that specifically states the HD version will be rolled out simultaneously with the SD, either.

Do a soft reboot. That should get your guide up to date.

Will we see Chiller TV in HD?

I noticed they have changed the channel on their website from channel number 67 (HD range) on Directv to channel 257. Do you guys think it is glitch they are working on or we will not see this channel in HD for a long time? Why can't D* get rid of some of the junk channels and add more HD programing?

The reboot that I performed on our H20-600 was done by opening the front panel where the access card is located at and pressed the red reset button.Hope that helps out. :up

Yes. A soft reboot is the same as RBR (red button reboot). A hard reboot is unplugging the receiver and letting it reset.
