According to Friday's paper, you should get King on 105, Kong 106, Q13 113, and WB 114. Not much HD on the latter two. How are your SD channels? Any hookup advice?

Honestly, I didn't pay attention to which box it was. I did almost no research on this before I did it, then spent half the night flipping through the 5 billion channels searching for some HD content.
as for hookup advice, I don't reallly have any, the guy hooked it up (he was an idiot, btw... he hooked the cables up, and hte screen only showed the color blue, so he started messing with my tv's color settings to find the other colors, he didn't think that maybe he had the cables hooked up wrong until I politely suggested it). he also unhooked the cable from my monster surge protector, which I put back after he left. I don't yet have a DVI cable, but supposedly that makes a big difference, if your tv has that input.
my SD on the movie channels seems stronger than it the locals, but last night I found it hard to watch the SD stuff, even if it was better programming. Maybe the 'awe' factor will wear off in time, but for now, I'll watch anything that's in HD.
yes, I'm in the seattle limits (west seattle), and I'll check which box they gave me when I get home, and let you know.
what difference does the box make?
