    Looks like it's a no go here in MA for Charter customers. I have to watch the Sox on reg TBS, and not happy. The quality of the Rockies/Padres game was terrible.

    As a Padres fan I was ticked off that Cox here in Vegas doesn't have TBS-HD yet. But according to my local AVS Forum HD thread the channel appeared today. To avoid posting spoilers i'll keep my opinions of the game to myself.

    The game looked great. Otherwise, was happy to see they had The Office reruns, then found out they were stretched SD. Makes no sense, the originals were in HD. I wonder if any TBS movies are in HD. Do they even show any good movies?

    Just added here last this week, and it's as stretchy and unwatchable as I expected, just like TNT. Thanks, Time Warner; instead of adding REAL HD channels that actually broadcast HD material, let's add a channel that shows 95% SD content that's been upconverted and stretched all to heck. Thanks, if I wanted to do that, I could've tuned to TBS and upconverted it myself. Grr.

    Thank MLB for giving half the playoffs to a station only available on cable.

    I've got it on channel 726 on Time Warner Hudson Valley, but no guide info yet. Anyone else have that problem? Is that TiVo issue or a Time Warner issue?

    Update: I called TiVo, and they said they will request an update from Tribune Media, who provides the guide data, but it will take up to five days for them to get the update The playoffs will probably be over for us in New York by then!

    I got TBS-HD and CNN-HD a day apart. I have guide data for TBS-HD, but not for CNN-HD. Even stranger, I never got a message on my TiVo that the new channels were available---they just showed up (unchecked) in the "channels you receive" list.

    Oh, and for me, it's definitely a TiVo issue since my Comcast DVR has the guide data...

    Anyone confirm whether Comcast-Chicago (Schaumburg Area) added this channel today? I wasn't able to check before I left for work.

    The Tribune states in today's paper (and online) that Comcast promises TBS-HD to be up and running by tonight's Cub game. Link to story here.

    Houston,...
    Comcast Houston. Just went live yesterday. In TiVo channel list but no data yet. Pixellates right now, but I guess they're getting things tuned right.

    NFL HD just showed in TiVo channel list but all I get is a black screen. Maybe it's part of package I don't get.

    NFL-HD (along with NFL-SD) is part of the "Sports Entertainment Pack" on Comcast. It costs $1.99 a month.

    But there should be a screen that tells you you haven't subscribed to the channel. It shouldn't be completely black.

    My S3 (on Comcast in Boston) has no guide data for TBS-HD, channel 831. It shows up on the hd comcast motorola box I have in the other room though. I've tried forcing a network connection already. Anybody seeing data or have any suggestions?

    I can't believe I am being forced to watch the Sox in SD. :mad: :(

    Most of Comcast in CT has added TBS-HD , but not Wallingford (North Branford System)

    tase2 - I feel for ya - I can't believe how last minute all of these arrangements have been. It's bad enough listening to the hokey tbs announcers and watching their off brand graphics. I actually miss Remy (the colorful local color guy her in Boston)...

    Same thing for me (see above post). Did you get a TiVo line-up change message about the new channels or did they just magically appear?

    Amnesia - While on the phone with a tivo csr, the guide data just appeared as I had the guide up. When I went to Tivo Central, I got the "lineup change" message about 831 TBSHD being added. I thought the network connection I forced about 30 min prior caused it, but who knows.
