if you're not having any problems with your current cable, "high speed" cables won't make a difference.

Lets just hope some of these new HD channels added will be for Extra Innings. 1 HD for the games is not enough hoping they add some more. They said 20 HD channels will be freed up once analog is all gone. I cant imagine Comcast using all 20 on real channels because they will have to pay for those channels. Any new HD channels added to League Pass or Extra Innings are at no extra cost. I remember reading that on Indemands website once word got up last year that they were adding more HD feeds.

Any word on whether Comcast will be upgrading their DVR options from the old MOTO units. I am jealous that RCN will be getting TIVo soon with four tuners, etc.

I am curious as it would be great to have four tuners plus 1TB storage, etc. I am not so concerned about apps since everything has apps now (my TV, Blu-ray and Apple TV)

It would seem like for me, the analog transition has already happened. No more analog channels whatsoever. They also changed around some of the local access channels, moving WWDP to channel 10. But I also noticed that WSBE (on 22) is gone from the lineup. But I can still get it if I hook the cable up directly. I wonder if this is intentional.

i'm getting no more analogs either, maybe the 1st wave came early and the second wave is April 10th? we might to wait and see in a couple weeks.

Looks like Soapnet is still on 244 instead of Disney Juinor.

Comcast will switch from SOAPnet to Disney Jr. but not until April 23.

Verizon's FiOSTV will keep SOAPnet and add Disney Jr. on Channel 260 on March 22.


We have both channels as well as WGN, HDNet Movies and Epix

Figures i didn't see my previous post of the march bill until now, thanks for refreshing me.

and from the looks of the guide on channels 621-635 there will be 10 Hockey games on the 1st day of the MLB Extra Innings preview April 5th!

Anyone else not getting the MLB Extra Innings games on GAMEHD1, channel 635 in my area? I have not got 1 game in HD on that channel since the free preview started. There are 3 games on that channel today the first 2 still have frozen screen no game in HD.

Same here, figures they had trouble blacking out the Red Sox/Tigers game on Thursday (finally went black about 1 and 1/2hr in) they've basically left it black ever since.

My friend has the NBA & NHL packages too, says he is "lucky" if 25% of the scheduled HD games come in. He has tried calling and they just don't care / pass the buck. Every time i have been over there the games scheduled to be on TEAM HD / GAME HD have never showed (Just a black screen)

I have given up on Comcast getting more HD channels for sports packages. I have been watching the free game of the day from MLB TV on my PS3 and the picture is much better than in the past. I watched the Dodgers game this weekend the clarity was good and no buffering much better than Extra Innings in SD. So I think I will get the MLB TV. The other thing about Extra Innings is all the RSN's that are Fox affiliated which is most of them are wide screen format so you get the black bar at the top and bottom when viewing in SD I hate that. Maybe in another 10 years Comcast will catch up to the times when it comes to sports packages in HD.

Does anyone notice anything different since the All Digital Date is today April 10th?

I was actually looking for that, too, but I found that for me, everything was exactly the same. We actually lost all analog a few weeks ago, so maybe that's why, but I did notice that analog cable channel 58 does have color bars on it (it has for the past few weeks).

I have noticed nothing at all. If they were planning on adding more channels it probably would have been posted on the last bill. If your freeing up space for around 20 more HD channels you would think they would have already had the ball rolling as to what channels were being added in HD. We are talking about Comcast so it may take them until 2013 to add any new ones. It has been 2 and half years since they did that first upgrade to add more HD channels. They need to pick up the pace in adding this next wave.
post #8182 of 8545
if the transiton did free up space there are 2 things i could think of Comcast should do with it

1. upgrade to the IntelliStar 2 on The Weather Channel lHDl channel 847 (since bandwidth isn't an issue anymore.)

2. move the Spanish networks on 639 - 648 to 689 - 698 so the Game HDs will start right after channel 635.
post #8183 of 8545
GameHD1 seems to be working for the NYY/O's game.
post #8184 of 8545
GAME1HD blacked out again for todays Indians/White Sox game. You would think Comcast would show the games in HD on that channel to maybe get people to buy the Extra Innings package. If they are only showing just about all these games in SD the price of the package needs to be cut in half.

Hopefully this is true That Boston is getting Xcalibur May 1st and the RNG-150 on June 30th.

Here's what the RNG-150 (PDF) looks like and a story of it.

Did anyone DVR the 4/8 episode of CSI Miami and have it screwed up. I have my DVR set up to record the entire series. I configure it to add an extra 30 minutes do to the NFL games in the fall. The other night was the first chance I had to watch it. Strangely the title on the DVR menu was shown as Sports Final and only about 20 or so minutes of CSI Miami was recorded (starting from where the show was already about halfway through and ending before the show was over). I am aware of the issue with the broadcast tower/transmission line issue that affected the local channels but that only affected OTA right?
post #8187 of 8545
I recorded it on my TiVo (padded by an hour) and I had no problem.

It looks like Comcast cut short the free preview of Extra innings. It says on INDEMAND website preview was 5-15th. Today no free games on tv. Comcast does this all the time with not only the baseball but hockey and basketball previews. I am tired of these nickel and dimers from Comcast. Preview cut short and GAME1HD had only 3 hd games on all week.

That's why i buy the package during the free preview to prevent the above from happening.
