    Over at avsforum they said they tried launching the new channels the other day and something went wrong. It actually caused some people's receivers to stop working.

    Here's the post:

    DirecTV's attempt to launch a great number of additional HD channels was called off last night around 7:00 p.m. when it was determined there were conversion issues with their boxes. For example, my HR20-700 was not receiving any HD signals today, and a lengthy reset session failed initially to solve the problem. The Tech tried to get me to order service call on the six month old receiver that DirectV owns (taking up space in my HT), but a supervisor finally came on the line and went through a multi-step process for restoring my service. She acknowledged that the HD launch caused the problem.
    So...be forewarned, your HD receiver may fail as a result of the new service.

    Also stolen from AVSforum:

    So, eventhough D* failed to deliver on September 19th, they still managed to change their HD page this morning, to add the following verbiage:

    "DIRECTV is committed to bringing you the best in HD programming. Starting this month, we will be launching many of your favorite national channels in HD, including CNN HD, A&E HD, The History Channel HD, National Geographic Channel HD, Food Network HD, premiums like HBO HD, Showtime HD, Cinemax HD, Starz HD — and many more.

    That's just the beginning. By the end of October, DIRECTV will deliver over 70 HD channels. And by the end of the year, you'll get up to 100 of the channels you really want to see in breathtaking HD. That's more than any other cable or satellite provider."

    LOL at all the dumbasses that bought into the hype and switched to DirecTV based on promises of BANDWIDTH for more channels, and are now pissed they didn't get turned on the date they were RUMORED to show up.

    It will be even funnier when they ARE turned on, and they all have nearly zero HD content, and will spend 99% of their broadcast day broadcasting upconverted SD material. (Hopefully in stretch-o-vision like TNT HD)
