A good friend of mine just picked up his new HD cable box from Time Warner. He has a sony HD ready 36" tv and the HD cable box is a Scientific Atlanta Explorer 3100HD. Is there anything that lights up on the HD cable box that shows you that the show you are watching is HD? Just trying to help him figure out how he can tell. Also, our cable company has HBO HD and Showtime HD which I assume are broadcast in HD all the time. Does anyone know if the regular HBO channels broadcast in HD? Any advice here would be a great help. Thanks.
