I haven't had Voom installed yet... we're in the queue, but I noticed when I follow the link for "what's on now" on the Voom website that the content for PBS HD and some other channels does not seem to agree with what is actually on the air. I'm in eastern MA. Can someone comment on the real PG and whether it matches what is on the air? :confused:

This is an issue with local PBS. It is frustrating, but identical to the info on the DirecTV APG.

I don't know if it has gotten any better since PBS-HD went 24 hours HD vs sopme stations carrying it part time. I jnow on the 44 multiplex, only 44-3 is typically right (but that's an important one for the kids).

www.titantv.com does a pretty good job of accurately listing what's on, and breaks down digital and HD programming as well.

I think some program guides have trouble with PBS broadcasting on a VHF channel, and then another PBS channel broadcasting on a sub-channel. So channel 2-1 here carries the standard feed, but channel 2-2 carries the HD feed, which has entirely different programming. The other digital channels (AMC, NBC, FOX, etc.) carry the same programming, but with a digital signal, and some HD content, but they basically carry the same show.

My PBS does not put the National signal through (drat) and our guide is correct.

Oh well, at least the content on PBS HD is enjoyable. I like the TitanTV site... sweet
