from the notices that I am seeing for Texas we are getting: BYU TV, ShopHQ HD, here! TV premium 24x7 channel to complement the VOD channel. Would love for the Dallas notice to mention NHL Network being added along with TV Land HD, and MTV2 HD being added :P

Hopefully, it will happen.

May BHN Bakersfield also get NHL Network.

On that notice, the only thing we do not have is Revolt and it does not seem like BHN will be adding it.

I just got the new "enhanced" DVR also. I have my TV (Hitachi 51S500) connected to an audio amp/HDMI switch and that is connected to the TV with an HDMI to DVI adapter cable and it is working good. I'm not sure of the type of adapter but the book shows it as a DVI-HDTV connection. The audio is handled by the audio amp.

I hope this helps.

The rep did not mention that requirement, so now I am scrambling to find out if will work with a "HDMI to DVI-D" adapter, otherwise I will have to cancel the installation appointment.

Anyone connecting a BH set top box using an HDMI to DVD adapter? Does it work?

Note: The TV is a HITACHI 51SWX20B.

Thanks!

I have recently noticed that on some channels, the commercials' volume is much louder than on the shows. Has anyone else noticed this issue? We are watching AMC now but I think it is happening on other channels. Has anyone else noticed this?

It's the CALM Act - F.C.C. has been enforcing the 2010 law since 2012. Complain to the FCC and see justice done!

Thanks! Here is the info to file a complaint: http://www.fcc.gov/encyclopedia/loud-commercials

They want very specific info about the commercial and the show so I will have to make a note next time I watch that channel.

This may have been covered way down in the forum, but I need to ask - anyone else seeing heavy (i.e. unacceptable) compression, particularly on certain channels? WKMG (1060/6.1) seems to suffer the worst, especially during sports/football, rendering the shows almost unwatchable. Streaming (4 separate sources) looks better!

OK. Watching the Steelers/Panthers game on WESH (1020, 2.1) and this is some of the best HD (other than BD or streaming) I've seen in a while! Sharp details and minimal motion/compression artifacts. Why can't all channels be like that all the time?

Do any of you guys with one of the new Enhanced DVRs want to see the PIP feature enabled on them? Please let say something here, or if you are in this forum here:

https://secure.dslreports.com/forum/...tures~start=60

Even if you don't care yourself about PIP, a number of us with the enhanced DVRs would like it, so maybe place a vote for us.....please? I really miss it during football season but the advantages with the new DVR don't allow me to give it up. Especially with all the new and returning fall shows starting. But I don't see why we can't have both!!

Thanks.

We will find out from Yimitz if we can expect anything in our notice when Michigan gets theirs on Thursday.

Apparently Flix HD and Showtime Family Zone HD are now available so they could be possibilities.

Others like Daystar HD and perhaps the Pac 12 Regionals could be in play but I am not expecting much.

Then again, there could be something like channels moving off of SDV or something.

We will have to see. If only BHN put these online........

I've noticed it on 1060-HD several times during sports broadcasts: The running players and the balls inflight are strobing across my plasma screen - like watching an old LCD TV with slow refresh rates.

I think there is a fix for this!

  • Press "Settings" on your remote.
  • Go to "Devices."
  • Scroll through the list until you find something that I think says "Volume"
  • Change that setting to "Fixed."

This should stabilize the sound between the commercials and the programs. If that does not work, you might need to see if a similar setting exists for the volume on your TV.

Thanks Jack. My box was already set that way so I think it is a channel issue.

Small notice today, I had to hunt to find it.

MTMs: Gol TV, Jewelry TV, NHL Center Ice, NHL Network, Outdoor Channel and Youtoo.

Also, there's a Starz free preview scheduled for November 27 through 30.

That's it for this month.

HDO: I don't foresee anything being added this month. It's pretty dry out there The only news of late is Hub will become Discovery Family Channel on October 13th with a slight programming change.

Maya: It seems to be channel issues. I changed both my TV and box like Jack said, but it's still happening on a couple of them. I guess we'll have to suffer with being blasted/yelled at .

Gator: I expressed my displeasure with no PIP over there already. Huge dealbreaker for me, especially with so many sports going on at the same time!

Me too HD . At least they are keeping most all of the core programming.

Thank you Yimitz for the update! I still wish they'd get a deal done for the NHL, but as long as they play nice and we're still able to view it I'm happy.

The Birmingham notice had Video Rola HD in their notice.

It's a Nuestros Canales Channel. So, we get something I guess and Spanish Language and International channels are likely the new norm until an HD holdouts goes HD.

Nothing new in our notice.

Same channels on MTM's and The Starz Free Preview was mentioned.

While Video Rola HD was not, I still expect it in November.

Unless Pivot is added or Chiller finally decides to go HD, there is nothing to get excited about these days.

I think it'll be pretty quiet around here. Makes me sad as we're usually a lively group full of chatter, but we've got pretty much everything there is to be had aside from the channels that aren't in HD and a few niche ones. I am still hopeful you will get your Pivot before the end of the year though .

Very true.

It's the bad side of having so much I guess.

It would be nice if Pivot came but I remember there was a time when there were three channels that were out of reach for years and even decades before they got added.

Remember the days when we did not have Sports Channel (now-FS Florida), GSN and NFL Network?

The dominos fell.

We got FS Florida New Year's Day in 2009, we then got GSN and were actually one of the first to get it in HD and just two years ago, we finally got NFL Network.

Those days were fun and it was like getting cable again when the new HD channels would come and then the huge flood of them came in that fall of 2009. It was so much fun.

Now, were all spoiled and all of us have maybe 1-2 minor channels we want to round out our lineups.

To get some conversation started, everyone please post your remaining HD Wish List.

Mine.

1) Pivot HD
2) Chiller HD (Not available yet)
3) EPIX Drive-IN HD (Not available Yet)

I'd be happy if Chiller and Military History went HD. Of course I'd like to have AXS and HDNet Movies back too but I don't see that happening anytime soon.

With Fusion being integrated into so many deals with smaller companies through the NCTC and it coming to DirecTV, I'm really surprised it hasn't turned up on TWC and BHN yet. I would think it's probably the most likely addition right now for English programming.
