Channels 5xx vs 1xxx

Message 1 of 9

I have HD Extreme.  Am trying to setup my Favorites and have encountered a small problem.  I find "some" channels listed in the 1xxx channels that are not in the 5xx range.  Which one *should* I be using, or maybe both?

Use the 5xx range.  The 1xxx range is meant for those with the La Conexion (Spanish) package.

The 5xx range are all HD's, there wouldn't be any in the 1xxx range, did Zooky put an extra X by mistake and mean 1xx? If so then everyone's answer has to be reversed.

Right, but why did Zooky say 5xx? 5's are HD channels, did Zooky just mean any 3 digit number compared to 4 digit numbers? Why were the 5's singled out?
