I see you're a new member. Don't know if you're aware of the Orlando OTA thread. You're certainly welcome here but most of us are Brightrhouse cable viewers.

Like Impala says you might have better luck in the OTA thread here.

I reported that WMFE HD on BHN 1240 has been off for many days in Melbourne. Today, Monday January 3rd at 7pm it was back, carrying WMFE SD, and at 7.30pm it's carrying the national PBD HD program as it did before. Welcome back!

Barry, would you believe I got a glitch (both video and audio) last night watching the History Channel (43 and analogue)?

Lou,

I don't have a clue yet on the glitches problem. This is going to be a tough one to track down. I wanted to schedule another glitch test now that we are out of reruns again but I leave for Vegas on Thursday to attend CES. Anyone else here going to the convention?

I'm watching the Sugar Bowl and get absolutely no sound when watching it on BH channel 1090...the ABC Hi-def channel. The picture comes through fine though. When I switch over to the regular analog ABC channel I get sound.

Anyone else having this problem? I haven't watched anything else on that channel today so I don't know if it's broadcast-specific or not.

I have sound on all other HD channels.

I hope I have sound for the Championship game tomorrow...

Thanks,
Bob V.

Bob,

This type of problem usually turns out to be SAP audio switched on. SAP can appear in many different forms of on screen terminology sometimes displayed as "English" or "French" audio. If you search through your menus in the audio section perhaps you will find something like this switched on or set to a language other than English. People do not realize this feature is activated until they tune to a program with an alternate language and then get silence.

Another problem is WFTV-DT encodes a 5.1 flag into the digital audio stream full-time. This means even if the ABC network feeds them 2.0 digital audio it will appear to your audio receiver as 5.1 with audio coming out of the left and right front main speakers only. My work around to this is to switch to analog and engage Dolby pro-logic so that at least the announcers are coming out of the center channel during the game.

Happy New Year!!!
With the new year, is it about time to start a new forum?
Maybe with a new forum will come the HDPVR and new HD channels

Again enjoy 2005!

Greg any word on if BHN will go live with ESPN2-HD on Thursday? I'm curious b/c my Longhorns play a B-ball game that night and it will be one of the first HD broadcasts on ESPN2-HD.

BHN is in negotiations for 2 new HD channels for the first quarter of 2005. What 2 channels do you think we will get from the list below?

UNIVERSAL HD
ESPN2 HD
ENCORE HD
STARZ HD
THE MOVIE CHANNEL HD
CINEMAX HD
NFL NETWORK
PLAYBOY HOT HD
SPICE HD
FOX SPORTS NET FLORIDA HD
WEALTH TV
HD PAY PER VIEW
HD VOD

It should be noted that ESPN has announced a new negotiation from square one is required to get ESPN2 HD.

ESPN2 and either of these other two would be fine by me. Probably not fox sports net florida since we have the polish soccer channel aka Fox Sports World :-/ . What is Universal HD ?

If anyone wants to do another glitch survey I can participate watching "LOST" on ABC Wednesday night. Its the best show on TV and there are no sports in HD Wednesday night so I see no conflicts.

Hopefully one or two movie channels. I am a double dipper (D*) and Universal HD is another big nothing channel showing old movies and shows. If you like that it's a nice channel but it's not much different than HD Net or InDemand. I would prefer movie channels with recent movies. Starz HD would be great along with ESPN 2.

Well it's only 5 more days until BHN starts calling people on the waiting list for the HD DVR. I've been impatiently waiting for almost an entire year now! Woo hoo! Woo hoo!

Please God, no last minute glitches....

From a customer service rep on the phone this morning. She also said the date had been printed in the newspaper. When I first got on the list I lived in Orlando, but a few months ago I moved to Melbourne. The reason I had called them was to see if there was a seperate list for Melbourne that I needed to be on, but she said no and implied that the date was the same for both Orlando and Melbourne.

Maybe Greg could give some info about the coverage area that will be included in this Jan 10 rollout?...

Looking for some advise please

I tried hooking my Xbox through my Pace box to my TV... through the component video. For some reason on certain screens (games), the menus cannot be read (for the Xbox game). The font color is too close to the background color.

But... when I hook it up directly to the TV... it's fine. (not through the Pace box).

Would you all think there is a setting to adjust on the "component video in" on the Pace box? OR... perhaps my Pace box just has bad inputs for the component video.

I tried adjusting the TV... with no luck.

Since it looks fine straight to the TV, I have to think it's the Pace box. Are there any settings for this?

Thanks.

-Boomer

I'm not a BHN subscriber yet but I will be at the end of Feb. when I move. Just wandering, did BHN add ESPN2 HD today? Also, does the High Definition Digital Combo package they offer for $93.99 include ESPN HD, INHD and INHD2 or do you still have to order the High Definition PAK for an extra $6? The CSR on the phone was never that clear about it. Has the HD DVR monthly fee of $9.95 been confirmed b/c the CSR said they didn't know what it will cost? Thanks for the help.


I've heard that TBS is in HD too, or is that just in the Atlanta area? I'd love to watch Braves games in HD.

no ESPN2 HD yet
no, its an extra $6 on top for the extra HD channels
I don't know about the fee for the HD DVR, but i hope I get one soon so I won't need to switch between two boxes.
No TBS in HD here

Thanks for the response Deric. Okay, one last question. On the current HD box from BHN (and the up coming HD DVR) are all of the channels passed through the DVI output, even the non-HD ones. I assume that they are b/c I doubt you'd have to use two different outputs just to see all the channels. I was just wandering if using the DVI output noticeably improves picture quality for the SD channels when displayed on a digital display?

Glitch on WOFLHD (Fox) during 24 at 9.30 pm - both audio and video twice during that minute. I realize that this wasn't a planned test date, but figured a lot of us may be watching this show.

Separately thanks for advice here from everyone at times and Greg thanks for the help with any BHN issues. I am moving away from the area, but if I move back I will surely sign up with BHN instead of going Satellite - Thanks.

I experienced the same during 24. I've kinda gotten used to glitches on Fox though, but it still frustrated the hell out of me since it was right in the middle of the premiere
