597 MHz has Food Network HD channel 664 and HGTV HD channel 665. Both are MPEG2.

SyFy HD channel 680 rides on 141 MHz, and CNBC+ HD channel 602 shares that QAM. Both are MPEG2.

Interesting, my DVR was reporting SyFy HD on 597 and USA HD / HGTV HD on 135.

Are you sure the on-screen information was for the correct channel? The DVR's have 2 tuners, so you could have been looking at the other tuner's channel information. How are you getting the frequency information? Which method?

Yes, I am certain. Going to Settings -> System Information -> Press Info for more information. Shows you what channel you are on, the QAM, the SNR, etc.

Try using the OSD method, not the IMG system info method. Tune to the channel you want to check -> DVR power off -> press OK twice to bring up the OSD. Scroll down to d06 current channel status. Verify the channel number and frequency. You may need to scroll to the 2nd page to see the other tuner's info. Left arrow to exit out, or just hit the power button.

Dave, using your method yields the results you expected. SyFy HD = 141 mhz and USA HD = 135 mhz.

Thanks.
