tvmaster Too bad about TVO and Newfoundland’s Superchannel ( hehe), NTV. Those are two channels that would be nice to have while traveling south of the Hollywood line...

peternm22 Does anyone know what time of day the lineup switchover occurs? It looks like ours is scheduled for Sept 17th according to the email we received. Will it occur overnight?

LONSat TVO is not on the schedule It will remain on G1. Yes the News channels are slated to move

Bill_Mead Are the CBC and CTV HD news channels still set to move to an F satellite next week? Any chance TVO HD will get moved as well?

LONSat You may not have the time shift package that would include NTV, being that you are in Edmonton.

Free to whom? I don't get NTV or any Atlantic stations.

LONSat You will have to go into settings and hide the SD channels ie customized list. I would wait til Wednesday afternoon has 8 of them will become HD by then. There will be one more in Oct, CTV2 Alberta will convert to HD on or around Oct 16th.

Only Show HD in Guide

Hi all.

I am now on the National Channel guide. After a day or 2, it makes sense.

There are a lot of CTV2 channels listed now that I never ventured up to before because I only ever browsed the HD channels. I did notice many have since converted to HD which is good, but some are still SD. Is there a way to only show HD channels in the guide, similar to the way we can only show subscribed to. Or do I have to do a fully customized list?

Thanks

Dr.Dave @NovaMan All newspapers that I'm aware of just subscribe to one of the TV guide services. The Halifax Chronicle Herald loads the data from TV Passport, so once their guide data is updated, all the newspapers that use their service will also be updated.

NovaMan @k801809 , The Halifax Chronicle Herald TV Guide also lists the "old" Standard Def. channel numbers for both classic and advanced. I'm sure many other newspapers across Canada do the same. The Herald TV Guide can be reached at 902-426-2811 or [email protected].

This will be fixed tomorrow - I had something missing in the Guide backend. Sorry about that.

k801809 @Dr.Dave - to be honest, I don't have contacts for these companies, but it's on my list to poke around to see what I can dig up. It's been a LONG time since we've launched a new lineup!

NTV isn't special in this regard, you only notice just that one because of your location. All Global stations have extended subbing on them. You'll receive whichever Global station you're closest to by postal code, providing the time zone is the same.

Have you sent the national lineup to the other guide services? The following only have the classic and advanced lineups:
