I've always wondered why DirecTV can offer HD and SD on the same channel number, yet Comcast separates them and often creates duplicate (or triplicate) SD channels.
Iguide? comparably with the older boxes yes the SD boxes can see HD channels on comcast.
Other cable systems have auto HD or HD on sd number + 1000.
as for duplicates well 0-99 is not the same at each area head-end. And parts of the 100's has alot of old analog to digital moves from 5+ years ago.
oddly you see 285 info HD (CSN + HD) in areas that get CSN Chicago even when they have all there HD in 800's or far from the 200's.
also more odd stuff is the use of CLTV for CSN + for some time this year they used 101 for CSN + SD but now back to CLTV?? and if useing CLTV why not add CLTV HD on the info HD slot?
Does any with RCN know if you get CSN + HD on CLTV HD channel?
also CSN + 2 has been on a few different slots.
as for long term planing there may be a need for CSN + 3 or + 4. worst case is 5 feeds (fire + bulls + cubs + sox + and blackhawks.
there may be a plan for Comcast network 100 HD or a part time feed. Also nice to have BIG ten alt HD.
A other good thing with directv is the alt feeds are right next to the main feed no hunting.
and they get NBC Sports Channel alt (so you get all the games in full)
