HD flag in the Guide info?
« on: December 06, 2008, 05:44:37 PM »
Is it possible for the HD flag to appear in the EPG program info on the Beyonwiz? It could be added to the end of the description or the Episode name if the Wiz cannot provide a specific spot for it.

It would be nice to be able to see in the on-screen EPG which shows are actually HD sourced when deciding which to record (SD or HD?).

The HD flag is displayed on the Beyonwiz. It just doesn't seem to be consistently applied. For example,  tonight on Prime in the ACT Britannia High is flagged as HD on both Prime SD and HD, so is tonight's Lord of the Rings. Dance Machine, though, isn't flagged as HD on either. However, LOTR and BH are flagged as 16:9 on Prime HD, but not on Prime SD, though presumably they'll be shown in 16:9 on both. Dance Machine isn't flagged as 16:9 on either. No idea what it will actually be shown in, but presumably 16:9. Most prime-time stuff is. now.

Go figure. It almost looks like the BW is displaying HD for the IceTV 16:9 flag, and vice versa. Or someone's being a bit sloppy at IceTV.
