Default HD Channels no longer shows hd shows

I had directv for years and I got hd directv and now some hd channels only show sd stuff not hd shows. They use to show hd shows all the time but now lately they haven't two channels so far are.

Destination America and disney channel. Disney will shows some old stuff in hd but there newer shows and movies are all in sd. Destination America use to show all there shows in hd and Now according to the guide there schedule there all there shows are in sd. This is so annoying. Im paying for hd when when a lot of my stuff is in sd when its suppose to be in hd.

Anyone got a clue whats going on?

I did a few random checks and new programs are in HD, older programs (made in SD) are in SD.
the problem is that unlike most other channels, the guide does not tell you which programs are in HD. The "HD" designation is missing in the program guide.

Did you actually view the programs? Read what you wrote and see if it makes sense. Why on Earth in 2016 would older shows be in HD and newer shows be in SD?

Default Guide and Watching SD vs. HD

I had this happen to me a couple weeks ago. I have no idea what changed.

But for some reason most of the channels I was selecting were in SD. At first, I though I had done something to screen format as my TV screen was not display in full screen mode as it has been for years.

I messed with it for days. Finally, I caught on that somehow my SD vs. HD Guide Settings had been changed. I went in and selected HD only and returned to viewing. It took the system about 24 hours to totally reset itself to where all I was seeing on the Guide were HD versions not SD.

And where do you live that DTV doesn't offer locals?
