Default 5710 HD Test Channel

Hi

I noticed I have a test HD channel working on 5710. I also noticed that Echo 3 & 5 have the History Channel HD displayed on info sites. Could the test channel be for History HD?

If you looked around before posting this you would find 5710 is an MPEG-2 mirror of DiscoveryHD Theater. Available to all receivers via 110 orbital slot.

HistoryHD is uplinked to hidden channel 9491. Now the reports are in conflict on this one. Some say it will be activated tomorrow (9/1) and others say 9/5. I guess we will see tomorrow.

Right now it is playing and ad for Science Hd, TLC HD, Animal planet HD and Discovery HD on Discovery Theater HD... Maybe we can get all 5..by adding Discovery Theater HD.

Discovery Theater HD was the first HD channel ever put on, the others you listed were activated a couple of weeks ago.

I don't see Discovery HD Theater, Is it not a different channel than Dicovery HD? The others I know were activated. That is why I said adding Dicovery HD would make 5

Discovery HD theater is channel 9421. Discovery HD is on 9487. DiscHD Theater was the first National HD channel Dish had. I had it on my old 6000 receiver.
