Wow 69 HD channels. I feel like I'm living the mid 90's all over again. Like when we went from 62 analog channels to 80 analog channels.

69 HD's that's like as many SD analogs there are in a traditional cable system, wow.

Dump that much analog, and you free up a lot of space for this sort of thing.

Thanks

716 QVC HD 1

@comcast.net

My post wasn't really clear. I currently have only basic cable (simple coaxial cable to my plasma). Not digital or expanded. So I have HD channels such as 9.1 for ABC, 16.1 for NBC and so on. I don't have channels in the 700 range. So any additions there?

you might find 716 via qam when it becomes available also you might want to do a channel scan and see if there has been any new channels that you can see because comcast has been doing some switching of Carrier channels

TUALATIN/MCMINVILLE APRIL. 15TH, hd channel additions ?
WEST PORTLAND /ST. HELENS MAY 13TH, hd channel additions ?

Nevada,

Do you know if Beaverton/Garden Home is included in Tualatin or West Portland?

Will they continue to pack 3 channels/carrier or will some be dropped back to 2?

Re run your autotune function. Basically though you only will get the ota. Abc, Cbs, Nbc, Opb, Opb create, Nbc weather plus, CW(used to be wb),fox (kptv), kpdx, and the oregon channel. Also there is even espn radio which is coming through. Oh yeah all of these arent necesarily in hd but are the digital ota channels already broadcasting in the west portland beaverton area. I have also even seen tvs pick up other customers on demand choices. Becareful though aome of the channels your tv will pick up will be double broadcasts.

i think west Portland but i don't know that area also no idea about the 3/1 yet
just to clarify the only areas that will see all these new hd channel by THE END OF FEB. will be SALEM,ALBANY,LEBANON,CORVALLIS AND EUGENE
The reason i did not put a date on salem hd additions is because i don't have a date yet for them yet,
but i will tell you salem and the Corvallis/Albany head end are more connected than most people think mainly because of on demand

i cannot edit my first post i have recently come accross some info that some of the transition dates for some areas may have swapped in the portland area

It reads like if you are only an Expanded basic customer, you get a free full STB and 2 free DTA? That's not fair to the rest of the customers.

I got this message on my box tonight
"effective on or after 3/2/09 FSN HD is being added to our HD Lineup on ch 734"
my guess is this channel will launch after this date in the areas that have transitioned then when each area is transitioned

Thanks navada. I just wanted to let you know that there is at least one person following your updates.

A question for you: Are 32-71 still available as clear QAM, or have they been encrypted?

(I live in the McMinville area and am awaiting the same analog reclamation...)

yes 32-71 are still available in clear QAM now i have heard that in salem they moved the QAM freq. for those channels to the 64,65,66,67,68,69 range that includes all channels that are avail. via a dta except for the basic cable channels and any local subchannels that are still where they are now

ALBANY, CORVALLIS, EUGENE UPDATE as expected we lost all analogs 31-71 today no new hd but i will monitor the channels and will post when something happens

in another mater i am now seeing that areas with WGN in there lineup (Salem south it is not part of our lineup). will get WGN HD on 709 when the time comes in your area to get the new hd channels.

Albany just lost all the analog betweeen 31-71 (snow)
around 1:40 am all the new hi defs came on except 728 nba tv (not launching yet on the Oregon system)

the weather channel looks good in hd only problem is that there is no local forcast on it right now in my area but i am being told that will be fixed as more and more areas get transitioned in OREGON & SW. WASHINGTON
