I think so you need a newer tv to be able to get them

The channels are not HD they are petty much the same resolution that all the other channels are (400i'ish), just that you need a digital tuner to decode them (newer tv's). Hopefully they start adding more and more of these- you can 'fit' ten digital channels in the same 'space' as one analog...at standard resolution. Thus we have channels: X-1, X-2, X-3...so on and so forth. Pretty cool that they're doing this, great bang for the buck I say!

I-Dog, any idea if one of the little digital to analog converters that I got from our local cable provider here in the States work to pull these channels in for an anlaog TV tuner?

yoDog! Idog! hehehe

Thanks for the info, Marty! We were able to scan and pick up all the new digital channels.

Seems the only channel out of the entire cable lineup I miss from the US now is Bravo. We don't seem to get that one -- correct? And all the movie channels seem to be on different time zones (some eastern -2 hours, some -1 hour, some on the western feed, some equal to the eastern feed...); it's quite a challenge to figure out what time a movie comes on here! But nice to have the channels.

If anyone has a "cheat sheet" on what time zones the various movie channels are sync'd to, please feel free to post it.

Thanks!
Emily

You can customize a TV guide for free at titantv.com. I spent a lot of time last year figuring out where each channel was originating from and was able to make up a guide that worked pretty well. Unfortunately, Coral Cable changes things around quite often so it is definitely not failsafe!

I have a new flatsceeen digital LG mexican version that cannot get digital subchannels.
Some resorts have the same problem with big 42 and 52 inch models.
CCV need to line them all up or something
No subchannels or we need to go to cable boxes.
