TWC readying Start Over on HD channels?

Anyone else notice the popup that you'd normally see on the Start Over SD channels showing up on some HD channels? I've seen them on Food Network and FX lately. Right now it only gives you options to add a channel to your favorites, but at the end of the show, it pops up again like it does when you're on a Start Over channel.

I know they'd teased in past that they'd add HD channels to Start Over at some point, but this seems kind of coincidental.

Not much experience enhancement there. It would be nice for the "Start Over" ability to come to the HD channels. Its been with the SD channels for quite some time.

Enhanced TV is the label on the popup that appears. The only option it gives you is adding the channel to your favorites. When Start Over is enabled, it just says "Start Over."
