I don't think the system storage option in the setup screen does anything-at least, it didn't for me when I tried it. Evidently that step is not needed to be able to use My Movies, etc.

It's been a while since I did this on the H1, but don't I need to "initialize system storage?" When I select that option on the Solo 4K, it tells me there is no storage to initialize-I don't see...

I was disappointed in the quality of Why Be Good? (1929) last night. But I'm blaming Dish's compression scheme, rather than TCM. The compression in the background was bad, and overall the film...

Did Zerdin do one original thing his entire time on the show? What was so great about him?

Very weak season. Add in the fact that The Regurgitator has been doing his act for 30 years (I...

I DVR'ed the last several days of TCM movies, except for the ones that are on Blu ray. Here is how the batch from last weekend fared-

Well, 8 straight hours of no HD on Thursday night. Maybe I need to pay more attention. I'll start DVRing everything that isn't already on Blu ray and report back in one week what I find. I...

Considering the lack of posts lately, I guess there hasn't been much "true" HD stuff on the channel. Very frustrating that so little of what TCM HD is playing is in HD, and even more frustrating...

Agreed. This season was definitely better than last season, when I wasn't sure if I'd continue watching. I still don't like Joan, and I really didn't like how they elevated her abilities to the...

I suspect Lynch and Frost will be co-showrunners, with Lynch putting in more time "directing (photography and working with the actors)," and Frost busy with everything else. Does it sound like a...

I have faith that this isn't just a money grab by Lynch, and that in 25 years he has thought up entertaining, if not compelling, material. I'd be a lot more skeptical if not for Mulholland Drive.

This episode was really odd, and the first one of the season where the ongoing storyline lost its continuity.

On my Dish Hopper they ALL say HD in the info screen. The only thing that changes is that some movies have the closed captioning symbol, and some do not.

I, and I suspect many other people, would tune in or record TCM more often if we knew that information beforehand. Until then, it would be helpful to report any movies that one thinks are being...

Cat o Nine Tails looked ok, but DVD quality at best. I don't have the Blu ray to compare to my recording, but I would be shocked if it was HD. Plus it is not a Warner title, so I kinda doubt TCM...

It would be great if it was only a year that they had to wait. I've believed for a while now that TCM wasn't going HD because Warner didn't want the increased competition for Warner Archive Instant.

It would be nice to know beforehand what movies are going to be showing in HD. Maybe eventually on the TCM site? Presumably most, if not all of the movies already on Blu ray will be in HD. ...

If they really did switch over to "true HD," it seems like way too much of a coincidence that they pulled the trigger at a time when they are unable to come to an agreement with Dish.
