Heroes Season 3 episode 1 - update

Pleased to report that the HD listing for the Sunday evening repeat of Heroes next weekend is now listed by the BBC as being the first episode ('The Second Coming') rather than ... er ... the second.
So just so everyone's clear...on BBC HD they're showing the second episode on Weds. at 10pm, but if you want to watch the first episode in glorious HD too you have to wait until the 11.55pm showing on Sunday. Confirmation here.
Why they don't just show episode 1 at 10pm on Wednesday and episode 2 at 10.45pm (instead of a Mitchell & Webb repeat and the ubiquitous Later...) is beyond me...

Just to add to the confusion over the Heroes scheduling. According to Radiotimes.com the slot for Heroes on BBC HD on Sunday the 5th is currently occupied by Episode 2 ("The Butterfly Effect").

Until a week or so ago this slot was filled by a showing of Episode 1 in HD. Now we have one part of the BBC saying it's showing episode 1 on Sunday the 5th in HD and another saying that it's showing Episode 2 again in HD on the 5th.

If the RadioTimes.com info is right then we may never see the 1st episode in HD.

I've mentioned this to Danielle Nagler on the BBC Internet blog but so far had no response from her.

S3 E1 - Wednesday at 10 on HD? No? Pretty sure that's what the on screen thing said...
