Then I suggest you don't watch it. Problem solved.

I meant the ones like TNT or ESPN and ESPN2 where we already get an HD feed. If 245 allows us to see an HD version and an SD version of TNT, I don't need to have it show up in the guide again as Ch. 75.

What do you mean require new equipment? I own my HR-10 250, and I paid $600 two years ago for it. I think they will have to provide me with a HR-20 at THEIR cost to enable me to keep getting HD. And I won't lock myself in for another 2 years either.

Then you will only get what you get now. It cost me 99$ and another 2 years. But like I'm going to quit watching tv before then.

I don't understand myself why some people are against a 2 year commitment. I know I'm not going anywhere. For me they don't even need to lock me in , the service locks me in. Always been happy with DTV and have been with them long enough to cover several so called commitments. Was upset with some techs that came out once but not with DTV. They can sign me up till I can no longer pick up the service. For those against it are you planning on leaving? If so why worry on whether you get an upgrade or not? Leave or enjoy what you can get non HD. If you aren't leaving then what is 2 years?

I agree... I foolishly left for the competition and regretted it. Then when I got my new tv they wanted to lock me into another 10 month contract. Then I was against it because I didn't care for their service. But with DTV I don't mind the two year contract at all.. I have no plans of going anywhere anytime soon..

Note: Lime Green channels are currently available. 5 lnb dish, H20/H21, HR20/HR21 with BBC(S) required when HD channels roll out this month.

Well, if you are still using your HR10-250 or H10 or any old HD ird; you won't be able to pick up those channels by the end of this month.

I'm not sure I get the point of having a HD cartoon Network. Can cartoons even really be High Definition?

Its a shame you havent seen the hd version of South Park-Good times with Weapons available as a download on xbox live. South Park animation is nothing special, all the more reason I was shocked by the differnce the hd version of this episode made.
