You guys are lucky, RCN here in Eastern PA just encrypted all the HD channels (except the three major networks and the local PBS channel). I have three LCD HDTV sets in my home. Our main set I rent an HD STB so that we can watch the premium channels I subscribe to. But the other two sets I just relied on the QAM for the HD channels, which before yesterday, I was getting around 20 HD channels in the clear. Well, RCN has decided to block all those channels and require me to rent on of their HD boxes, which they charge $12.99 for, if I want to watch HD. RCN is going to loose a customer as soon as FIOS comes into my are. (I currently need RCN for my high speed internet)

Um... on dslreports.com, like the post said. go over there and search RCN forums. Either way, it doesn't matter - I've tried it since then and I have all locals in HD now, in the clear. I am in lakeview.

So, just so I can make sure that I'm on the same page as everyone here. I should only be able to get the locals via clear qam... nothing like comedy central or discovery channel... right?

Anyone know if we can expect MSNBC HD before the olympics? Also I wonder if Fox Soccer Channel HD will be added to the lineup.

Apparently RCN dropped HDNet in all markets. This was on someone's bill:

ATTN: RCN HD Expanded Pack Customers
Effective April 1, the RCN Expanded Pack will no longer include HDNET or HDNET Movies. We'll continue to keep you posted on important programming changes, including the addition of new channels on RCN.


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

Haven't seen any updates to the lineups. How accurate are they? Just hooked a friend's new Samsung TV up to her RCN service and it discovered a bunch of channels.

Marantz AVR & monoblocks + MartinLogan Motion 3.1 setup
