>>If you are running multicast HD, do you have to identify HD-1,
HD-2 & HD-3 or can you just ID them as WXYZ-HD (same ID on all 3 streams)?<<

My read of the rule (47 CFR §73.1201) is that it's not very clear.  Using the numbers following the letters "HD" seems to have become the norm, and I haven't heard of anyone being cited for doing it that way.
