I've just added the DirecTv HD package and am currently viewing it using the Samsung TS160. I've got a question about the programming.......

On the 4 HD channels, only certain programs show the HD logo indicating that they are being transmitted in high definition. Is this normal? I know that ESPN HD only will have a few programs a week that are shown in HD, but Discovery HD only shows certain programs to be in HD. The 2 HD Net channels don't have the little HD logo on any pf their programming. Is this because ALL of the programming on the 2 HD Net channels is in HD?

Am I too hung up on looking for the actual HD logo on the program guide? Overall, I think the setup works great and I'm sure that I'm seeing a lot of programming in HD, even though the program information doesn't always say so.

Thanks for your help!

I don't have D*, but I think that Logo might not always be there when it should. HDNet, HDNet Movies, and DiscoveryHD are always HD.

If you notice, HDNet still has the $ sign on it.

Not unless the 160 is different from the E86, if your getting your locals HD OTA, it won't have the HD logo on it.

That's a good point regarding the HD logo NOT being included on OTA programming. Not that I get to see too much OTA HD programming. Only CBS transmits in HD in Omaha!

Yes, you are.


The HD logo in the EPG is not yet reliable.
