Just wondering if D adds HD (prior to D12 going live) if there is any source we can follow that lets us have a hint ahead of time (like the Uplink Center for Dish)? I know there are rumors but it would be nice to see something.

hate to mention this but dbstalk has people who post dtv uplink reports, usually every week.....sometimes more frequent if there is any anticipation of more hd coming.

Also, Satelliteracer generally gives a day or two advance notice when there are new channels coming, although he never says exactly which ones.

When new channels are added they will appear in your guide and you have to go to your favorites list and uncheck them if you don't want them.

I don't think they will appear in your favorites list automatically. IIRC, you have to add any new channels to the list yourself.

His previuos information has proved accurate, I would expect these to be among the first channels added when D12 is finished testing (April).

The Africa Channel

BBC America

CSN Bay Area

I think that Fearnet is goin to be a VOD channel.

That is still the current list from our offical reference system .... Any agent should give the same list of upcomming hd channels.

Isnt Fearnet the VOD on COmcast as well?

Good list, thanks SC. Hope it works out, because ESPNU, WGN and BBC will be nice.

Actually Chip, I think it does work the way it's described.

They pop in (thats how D* would want it) and you have to remove them if you don't want them. At least thats how I remember them coming in.

Could be Jimbo, it's been a while since new hd was added. I just don't remember it that way. The synaptic connections don't fire quite as well as they used to, you know! ;)

Since they change the software more often than they add new HD channels :)rant:) it may have changed, but I do remember having to add new channels to my Favorite lists...on my HR20-700 anyway....
