Most of the PPV channels still appear in my guide. A few missing as they add channels. Noticed that 981 recently disappeared after Disney HD was added.

Never could see running multiple channels of the same movie, running it in a loop on 1 or maybe 2 channels with offset times would be good enough... I think

Lost all my English PPV channels (SD & HD) today. I can check the PPV menu to order of course, but I can't record as I can't find it in the guide to set a timer! I can select the channels by typing in the channel number. If I show unsubscribed channels, they show as they would regularly (I.E., not greyed out). Very odd. Will have to raise a support ticket. Anyone else getting this?

channels 655 & 654 have moved to unsubscribed list, but I can enter channel number & get there. If I'm on 653, a channel up won't take me there. Very strange.

Yes, this happens to me too when I hide unsubscribed channels but I don't order PPV movies so not an issue for me.

I find that a lot with the music channels I have in my favorites list one (last night all of them) were not showing up on my guide. If you punched in the channel # when the guide was one it would not go there but if you were on a show and punched the # in it would...strange glitch.

Question Duplicate HD channel listing on Guide?

Can anyone explain as to why there is so much duplicate HD channel listing on the guide.
eg 284&58 both NBC Detroit... 102&269 both TSN2... 281&130 both AMC plus many more
I find this very annoying and having to scroll through these extra channels makes no sense to me...
If i go and hide one of these duplicate channels then the other one is also hidden??
I know they used to have some sort of advanced/classic channel option for users... I dont even know if this still exists or what i have to be honest..

just my thoughts

thanks

I've noticed the same thing. I believe (and if I am wrong, feel free to correct me) that it is because they (Shaw Direct) introduced a new Classic Line-up and left the old one, so as not to confuse people. They could get rid of the the duplication and free up some space on the network. They could add some missing HD channels.

There isn't any "space on the network" that is used by these duplications. The channels are simply "mapped" to different spots "on the dial". No additional bandwidth is required.

Rogers has lots of duplication of channels, but that's because they group the channels into segments like movies, news, children's channels, etc. I'm not sure if SD does that.

the 2 new HD Channels which were added today, CTV NN HD on 094 and E! HD on 088. We have the Digital Advantage package and we are not getting the CTV NN HD 94 (it is grey no subscription), we get the CTV NN in SD, just wonder if others are getting this channel in HD?

I just noticed E! HD, 588 on advanced lineup. Looks like they ditched the west feed of Comedy to make room for it.

They never carried ComedyHD West in the first place.

I remember seeing both feeds in my Advanced Lineup until recently. Grayed out, as I wasn't subscribed.
E! HD has potential. Kim Kardashian's leathered azz in HD. Woohoo!
