Message from Comcast...new lineup?

Had a message on my DVR from Comcast that says they are
channging the channel numbers around for HD channels on
Nov. 15.  I  guess there are reasons for it, but they didn't say
what the numbers are changing to, so I will have to check my
series recordings once they change I guess, since I record with
option  "This channel only".

Re: Message from Comcast...new lineup?

You may be OK. Series recordings generally use the channel name, not the number. That is why there are issues when both the SD and HD versions have the same name. It resets to the lower channel number, which is usually the SD channel.

Ned,

This is what your new channel lineup will look like.  They are rearranging the channel lineup to allow for future adds.  You will notice that they have added USA, Discovery, HGTV and History HD for 11-15.  They are going to add more in December and then again in January.

It'd be nice if HD was more consistently numbered by me. They are jumbled around 170-220, with SD mixed in.  On my system, the 700's are MusicChoice. The 300's and most of the 900's (a few are used for OnDemand links) are open.

We have so few (especially those with useful HD content) that I have no trouble committing the numbers to memory.  wink

Re: Message from Comcast...new lineup?

Being new to Comcast, I'm having a hard time keeping the lineup straight.  I wanted to make a print version so I could sort by channel (network) name.  If I use the comcast.com website, select my address (I live in Arkansas) and choose all channels ... then select printable version, the 'all channels' version and the 'printable' version are different.
