    Rocket has around 15 Hd channels open on 110W check 368,371, 385,386.
    In the 9400's there are a couple more and a few in the 9500's.
    There are HD channels on 119W but they are not open on Rocket.

    Default Info will show you the symbol rate, and Lyngsat is a good source

    I don't know the technical reasons behind why...but Di$h seems pretty consistent in having a symbol rate of 21.500 ms/s for their HD channels, and 20000 ms/s for their standard def channels. More data (symbols) transmitted per second in HD.

    Bringing up the detailed "Info" for the channel, on the Dreamlink will show this.

    But there doesn't seem to be a visual indicator for the HD channels, to show you're watching an HD broadcast, if that's what you mean, besides the picture quality for most of them. :-) I wish we had something that would show (this is a 720p broadcast), etc...


    FYI, Lyngast is your best source, to know which channels are HD.

    FYI, you want to add 129w, if possible, to your mix. Much more HD there.

    I have 129, 110 and 119. 129 has most HD channels compare to 110 and 119. Few PPV on 110 are HD but I believe rocket doesn't support them. 476 ia PPV sport works fine. 9000 series on 129 are great HD channels and you will enjoy watching them.
