I also belong to several other boards, and the discussion has always come around to the lack of the channel and perhaps it had to do with the lack of a TNT-HD West feed. This very thread over time has expressed just that. The post that I jumped on is, in fact, the first I have ever heard of a west coast city that carried TNT-HD.
It wasn't your credentials I was questioning. It was more the tone...!
I mentioned the west coast TNT-HD in #400, allthought it was in a different context.
So let me rub it in a little more...!
I cannot remember when exactly we got it, but I remember seeing some of the last NBA games of the season. "Closer" was one of the first series in HD on TNT, and it was in excellent HD quality.
Unfortunately HD for TNT means HD all the time. Everything is stretched to 16:9 even if it wasn't produced in HD format. Even the ads are stretched...! Shows produced within the last year in HD are fine, but it's NOT fine to stretch fine old episodes of the X-files.
As mentioned earlier the British Open and other HD sports transmissions are amazing in TNT-HD.
