    Ya there are gonna be doing more in the coming months with all SD Channels converting them all to HD. I have Shaw Direct and thankfully my reciever is MPEG4 Compatible. Just last year they replaced Vision TV SD to HD and it makes a difference.

    Yes a few conversions happening in May, the Stingray video channels and a couple others convert from Std Def to HD. The Std Def effectively being dropped in the process. Look for over 60 Std Def channels that are already available in HD, dropping in each month of July, August and September. Along with direct conversions of other Std Def Channels.
