    I just received the HD box from TW Cable yesterday. As I understand it, they are offering 4 HD channels, HBO, Showtime, CBS and NBC (this is from their website). I am able to receive all the HD channels except for NBC. I understand that ABC and PBS are unavailible because of 9/11. Anyone else that's got TWC HD in NYC not getting NBC? Or is it just me?

    Dont have the HD box, but I would guess that NBC is unavailable for the same reasons ABC and PBS are -
    their antenna was on WTC. Only CBS was originally on Empire State.

    NBC has been on in Queens on TWC since the Olympics started.
    Sometimes you have to tune in to the HD channel more than once to get it to display. Try it again---it should be on. I live in Flushing & watched Leno in HD last night---you should be able to also.

    I'm in Manhattan, and I'm getting NBC in HD. But it's not consistent. About the only thing I'm currently watching on NBC is an occasional Tonight Show. Sometimes it's in HD, sometimes it's not. I've checked the occasional hi-def program (E.R., Friends), and they're consistently in HD.
    There is a signal on the PBS HD channel, but it's not the Channel 13 programs. It looks like a series of travelogues shot on hi-def video.

    Still nothing on NBC-HD. I've called the cable company (man are those people clueless!) and I've made an appointment for them to come on Monday.

    Thanks.
