On my Hughes HR10-250, I currently have 21-1 with the channel label WJPR with full programming information AND another 21-1 with the channel label Fox HD and no programming information. However, I can tune to 21-1 Fox HD and view programming (so far, I've only seen standard definition programming and it is in a 4:3 box inside of my widescreen with black vertical bars on the right and left side of the picture) That is a good sign as all other HD channels broadcast their SD programming the same way.
I receive 21-2 with channel label WBVA and no programming info. I can also tune into this station and view programming.
I receive 27-1 with the channel label WFXR and full programming information. However, when I tune to 27-1, I can not view any programming.
The test for HD will be tonight when American Idol airs as it will be broadcast in HD.
Yes, I intend to watch Fox tonight and see. It looks pretty good.
On my Zenith HDV420 I have Fox-HD on 21-1 and WB-SD on 21-2 (I'll have to check to see if it still does that idiotic resetting-my-tuner thing later). I also get Fox-HD on 17-3 and WB-SD on 17-4. I cannot check for programming labels on the Zenith or for program info.
On the Hauppauge WinTV-D, I've got 17 and 20 both with two programming streams, but 20-1 used to show as "WJPR-WB" (which was wrong) and now shows nothing at all. None of the other program streams ever had that info, though it now receives that info for 7, 10, and 38 (and possibly more, but I haven't bothered to look).
On the plus side, the Hauppauge tells me their PSIP is up to date with the correct PIDs, with both streams as 17.3/20.3 and 17.4/20.4.
I'll be watching Fox Wednesday. I hope they can pass some HD!
