Re: toggle between sd and hd channels

There is a way to toggle IF the channel is available in both SD and HD.  It does require more steps than the legacy box method.

 

When watching a show, hit the Info button.

 

Go to  Other Times.

 

The show you are watching will be listed and will have an entry for SD and HD.

 

Choose the one you want, hit Info/Watch.

 

Of course this only works if you have Auto Tune to HD turned off.

SD? What is SD?

I avoid SD broadcasts as a matter of principle...

Does anyone know if like the old digital cable, if you are on SD channel (let us say ESPN), can you switch to the HD version from the SD one?

The dig cable version had an HD logo in the info corner which you could select to switch.

 

I am not sure how to go to the HD version now, and I do not like the setting of auto HD either.

The only way I know to do that is to enter the channel number for the HD channel.  But I like the auto-HD tune feature.

Does x1 allow a toggle between sd and hd channels similar to comcasts standard platform when it prompts, "watch in hd"?


X1 can be set to automatically tune to HD if the HD version of the channel is available... otherwise you can turn this setting off and tune to all channels offered...  you can also create a list of your "favorite" channels regardless if they are SD or HD and use that Guide version.
