i managed to receive Mediacorp HD5 on Channel 2 of StarHub HD settop box on Friday, Jan 5, 2008, 12am on the program Shark.

i switched to 1080i and the program was in perfect HD mode.

is Mediacorp HD5 available on cable now??

Really ? How can that be possible ? IF it is HD5, the logo on the right will show MEDIACORP HD5 instead of Mediacorp 5.

Could you take a photo and upload it to imageshack.us and give us the link to view it?
