I noticed something interesting in the radio section at the end of the link.

VOCM
F1R/T
31
F2/T10
QPSK AC3
8PSK AC3
November 20

VOCM radio, can anyone hear it now? I have never received it via Shaw Direct, but the notice doesn't say "new".

It's the last item in the above document.

The following channels have converted to MPEG4
CBS HD Detroit
PBS HD Detroit
City HD Toronto
Global HD Toronto
Paramount HD

The following channels have launched but not necessarily on the Advance channel #'s that Shaw Direct indicated before. It did say subject to change.

DIY HD --- Adv Ch 475 *
Fox News HD ---- Adv Ch 496 *
Discovery Sci HD --- Adv Ch 482 +
HLN HD --- Adv Ch 494 *
MSNBC HD --- Adv Ch 493 *
Treehouse HD --- Adv Ch 457 *
FYI HD --- Adv Ch 467 *
Cottage Life HD --- Adv Ch 474 *
American Heros HD --- Adv Ch 479 +
AMI French HD --- Adv Ch 889 +

Treehouse HD is supposed to launch today but couldn't fine it.

* = launched on different channel number from original published info
+ = launched on the same channel number as published on Shaw Direct site.

Now receiving DIY 175, Fox 196, HLN 194, MSNBC 193 & Cottage Life 174, on Classic map, old, Quad LNB.

Great, four American news services, and only two Canadian channels added to F1/2 in HD. Because that's what the bigger, southern footprint needed - American news channels. lol. Who arranged this, Uncle Sam?

We do get all three OMNI's in HD, so how about CBC News, CTV News, CP24 on the F birds? Leave the 'Murican stuff on G1

Ok so Shaw published that Treehouse was going to be on Ch 568 Advanced. That would have replaced one of their bookmark channels. "Kids HD starts here". So instead of placing it with the other Kids HD channels and dropping the bookmark they place it at 457 nowhere near the other kids channels but after the French Super Ecran channels and before some of the recent HD English lifestyle channels. Better yet it is placed before the bookmark "New HD bookmark". So rather then keeping it with the other kids channels they keep the bookmark channel which is now wrong because of the random placement of Treehouse. Do they even think about this stuff or play rock paper scissors for how to place channels.

The bookmark channels were one of the first things I hid so, for me anyways, they are useless. I suspect there will some more random channel number placements on the upcoming launches.

When they introduced the advanced lineup it showed some forward thinking and planning for future channel placements now that seems to have gone out the window.

Confirmed. I now have Treehouse HD on channel 206 in the classic line-up via Anik F2. Now if they would just move the rest of the HD kids channels to that bird....

I receive AHC (American Heroes Channel) on Classic channel 555. Funny thing; my 600 receiver picked up the new HD version on channel 179, but my 630 receiver said that I was not subscribed. I called Shaw and got a re-hit from their automated system. Blam - 630 got the channel within a few seconds, even before ending the call.

I thought it odd that my 630 got the other recently added HD channels, but not AHC.

Shaw added the following HD channels on Aug 28

Channel Adv Classic
Moi & Cie 429 244
Yoopa 391 235
Unis 415 237

I can confirm the Advanced Channel numbers were the ones used at launch. Not sure on the classic channel numbers.

These appear to have launched on the G1 bird, can anyone confirm this by their absence because of the equipment or location?

The following channels have launched today in HD on Shaw Direct
Channel numbers are the advanced channel number. Most of them different from the initial channel numbers that Shaw Direct inidicated on their website.

OUTtv HD 469
OLN HD 622
Peachtree HD 661
Game TV HD 470
Cosmo TV HD 465
BET HD 488
BBC World HD 497

In addition CNBC SD was switched to Mpeg4 so some people might lose that if they have old equipment.
Shaw Broadcast indicates that CNBC is not available in HD. Do any other BDU's have CNBC in HD.

I am so happy that my "Smooth Jazz" Stingray audio channel 933 was not booted in favor of Christmas music. I heard Christmas music last week at the local Wal-Mart. We're only at half-past November. I will be all Santa'ed out by the time the jolly old elf makes an appearance.
