Re: HD channel listings

Channel 4 & 5 carry regional advertising on the SD versions.


What you have to remember is that Virgin have to use a single NIT (Network Ident Table) for both HD/SD & SD only boxes. An HD swap would be of extreme annoyance to the thousands of customers out there still using SD only boxes.

Also the V+HD box only has 20 hours recording capacity in HD, so many customers prefer to record the SD version of a channel even though HD is available.


The existing Sky Sports/Eurosport/BT Sports channel swap was done in agreement with the broadcasters, & as there is plenty of space in the sports section SD & HD channels could be sited close together with one digits difference between the HD & SD varients.
