The six new HD channels were up and running on my HD DVR this morning, though only Disney HD was showing actual HD content yet. The rest were showing SD shows or infomercials.

ESPN News was up on the guide but the channel didn't show.

None of the new channels' guide data had populated yet, but I'm guessing that will fill in later today.

The new channels were spaced fairly widely across the 700-block.

732: Discovery Channel HD
751: Food Network HD
755: ABC Family HD
767: MHD
769: Disney Channel HD
776: ESPN News HD

The new channels are all listed on Time Warner's website. Food Network is labeled as "HD Package," the only HD channel with that label. I'm sure that's an oversight. Even the "actual" HD tier channels like Mojo aren't labeled that way. It showed up on my box and I don't subscribe to that special HD tier.

Is anyone else having any

Is anyone else having any issues with Ch. 767 - MHD ? I can't get it to come up, it's in the guide, but with no guide data. All I can get it to say is "This Channel Is Currently Not Available. Please Try Again Later." I'm just curious and I'm not too worried about it yet considering it's brand new today.

Disney HD and MHD have been

Disney HD and MHD have been on and off all day today. I am guessing it will be working fine in a day or two.

I'm not seeing MHD at all

I'm not seeing MHD at all right now. I'll reboot my HD DVR and see if it shows then. Nothing on any of the new crop as far as guide data, but I'm guessing that'll show after the next guide update.
