I don't know about others, but FS Southwest and FS Southwest+ are both 24/7 channels that normally air different schedules. Usually the only time they are simulcasts is when a game is JIP, typically when they have a Mavs game on the main channel and a Stars game on +, the Stars game will JIP on the main channel once the Mavs postgame show ends. And that's not even counting the regional subfeeds of both channels for Oklahoma, LA/AR, and NM/central/south Texas.

The FSN Detroit Plus channel is the same as FSN Detroit unless a game is on.

Yes. For example, at 4am this morning, the main channel has paid programming, while + has WPT. Later on, the main channel has PAC12 and Big12 women's gymnastics, while + has UEFA soccer. And the live event differences don't just apply to local pro sports; during college football season, the main channel carried the "national" FSN games, while + carried the regional ACC and SEC games.

References to specific cities for OTA Canadian broadcasts should be removed unless you really want a huge list, now that Canada's DTV transition is almost as complete as it is likely to get and almost every place anyone outside of Canada has ever heard of has at least 3 HD stations on the air, and most have many more. Perhaps a link to http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Digital...ion_Transition would be appropriate. SUN TV no longer exists, having gone dark and returned its licenses as of Nov 1. RDS is a cable channel and shouldn't be in the over-the-air list at all. The CTV entry should have the reference to ExpressVu changed or removed. OMNI, Tele-Quebec, TVA, and V all broadcast in 1080i. CBC and SRC are now 720p.

NHL Network no longer has Wednesday games due to Versus/NBCSN picking up the rights to national games on Wednesdays. NHL Center Ice will no longer be showing playoff games now that every playoff game is national on NBC, NBCSN, NHLN, or CNBC.

What was listed didn't exist anymore.

Here's some of the HD channels you're missing for free-to-air satellite in the U.S. (I also think it's important to note H.264 and MPEG-2; H.264 channels tend to look a LOT better than the MPEG-2 ones. There's some Blu-ray quality material on BUD (which stands for "Big Useful Dish"):

Removing the list certainly got you motivated to get it back, with updated info

91 W Galaxy 17 (C Band)

The CW East, Pacific and Central (1080i MPEG-2)

Not the "true" CW network feed. What you have listed is the cable+ feed, for areas without a CW OTA affiliate. The true CW network feed is on 97W G19 (backup on 89W G28). Unlike the other networks it is only up for their primetime feeds, M-F.

103 W AMC 1 (C Band)

NBC East, Central, Mountain, Pacific (1080i MPEG-4)

That is their backup feed location. The main network feed is on Ku Band, AMC-1.

125 W AMC 21 (Ku Band)

PBS HD feeds (East, West, some specific affiliates like OETA, LPBS) (1080i MPEG-2)

This is the preferred HD feed. The other has a lower bitrate, though this isn't that much better.

You are missing the ABC and CBS network feeds on C Band; 99.2 W G16 and 97 W G19, respectively. ABC is H.264 and CBS is Mpeg-2 4:2:2.

New owner of my first TRUE Hd TV. It's a Samsung 65" 7150. My old TV was only 720p. With this new TV, should I now change the resolution in the Comcast STB to 1080i? There is also a 1080p60p setting which I'm not sure about either. Thanks from the newbie.
