    Glad to see NBC producing more HD content. Any chance of Dishnetwork passing the signal through like they do with CBS? Through no fault of their own, NBC's number one ratings market doesn't have a digital antenna.

    It is time for you guys that are still complaining about lack of programming to get on board. There is plenty of HDTV programming now.

    It's too bad that our local NBC (WESH) is too cheap to buy an HDTV IRD. They've been 4x3 480p for a while now with no plans to go HD because they tell us they are waiting for NBC to approve the type of receiver to use. They can't just buy any old receiver if it's not on the 'approved' list. The running joke is for our HDTV owners to pitch in and buy their dang receiver for $700-$1K since they can't afford to.

    Any updates on this Mike?
