It's been on my cable box for about a week now in glorious 720p.

Flicks? Here's my collection. And I've seen a lot, too.

Figured out why it's not on the DTA. It's in 720p HD, so my SD DTA will not show it. It is listed in the virtual channel map in the diagnostics, though. Silly as I know it can downconvert HD as the HD copy of MundoFox was accidentally allowed for awhile.

But not ALL SD-DTA's can necessarily do this feat; (think all the 1st gen units they probably have out in the field) we had the very same thing happen here w/one of our local HD PBS stations, when our SD DTA's first came out. When you attempted to view it, you got sound but only a black screen.
They never got around to correcting this (the SD DTA channel maps) until right before they introduced HD-DTA's here...almost 2 years later!

The note about Comcast dropping 345 is true. WLS 7.3 is now LAFF, but Comcast is not carrying it. I guess they couldn't come to an agreement.

If you're complaining about the White Sox game, since the source (Cozi via NBC 5.2) is only 480 widescreen, the lack of HD doesn't matter. Comcast is showing it in 480 widescreen, and so is everyone else. AT&T and DirecTV may have it on an HD channel but the video itself is not HD.

Game was on MLB network, (233-HD), last night and was not blacked out like it should have been.
