I'll elaborate on this.
Channels 708 and 712 are YES-HD and MSG-HD respectively. There are usually only activated by Time Warner when a game is going to be on. The channel is only available to be set to record while a game is on, and a few hours after the game (they recently altered the schedule so that the window for 1 game is now about 8 hours, and the DVR can only set this channel during that time.... I still don't get why... but whatever...)
All home game broadcasted by YES are in HD (channel 708 in NYC).
All Sunday night ESPN games (home and away) are in HD (channel 725).
No Game shown on channel 9 or FOX Saturday is available in HD (FOX is SD-Widescreen)
Following Road YES games are in HD and on channel 708 on TWC

I hope Friday afternoon's rainout makeup vs Boston will be added to the active schedule... I assume it will be done in HD by YES... hopefully Time Warner figures that out... currently the program guide doesn't indicate it.
O - and don't always go by the Program Guide. you'll be surprised sometimes that games will be on and the guide won't say they should be.
