Have you tried MHD? I think that's the channel that plays HD videos and concerts. They claim to play a mix of MTV & VH1

Channel 369 I think. (I hope I gave u the correct channel)

Default Lost Sirus

I tried HD only and lost the Sirus music channels. I was told that they were only available in packages and could not be purchased separately. I also lost Fox Sports Southwest which is a HD channel. I canceled my locals because I watch them over the air and found the guide goes away. The guide you see on OTA comes from the satellite local channels. That made programming local programs difficult, like the old days of VCRs. I missed Fox News and the Military channel. Gave up and switched back to top-250 with HD.

Dish's HD RSNs are game only, correct? So both FSN West and Primeticket are only live during a game? (BTW, both HD RSNs are full time in Direct, just in case you are wondering). My main question is, are both of these HD RSNs broadcasting on the same channel (like on FiOS or do they broadcast on different stations all together (like on Direct)?
I've heard talk that sometime in early 2009, the HD RSN's on Dish may become full time HD channels instead of game only.

About 2 months ago Fox announced that all the RSN's will be going all HD in January. This is not just on Dish, it's a broadcast thing, kinda like TWC going HD.

Fox announced that all baseball games will be broadcast in HD. That does not mean that the provider is necessarily carrying that particular game or RSN in HD, nor does it mean that the RSN itself must be full time.
