I also used to watch Kung-fu, it will be interesting to see what print they broadcast. According to Imdb it was shot with single camera on 35mm film, 4:3 aspect. If they were to have went back and remastered from the original print is should look BD quality, although being on a rather bitstarved SD sub channel I'm not expecting even DVD quality. I hope they don't use the videotape syndication print, thats bound to look like crap even on a SD sub channel.
Wow, 1972-1975 didn't think it was that long ago!
Note I wasn't too happy when CBS announced they'd be adding a subchannel to their pristine HD channel, the only one left in my market with no subs, but so far I haven't really noticed a change in CBS HD, but then to really see I'll have to wait for something like the Grammys that uses strobes and extremely fast motion, which really taxes our ATSC broadcasts.

Or play them on a much smaller TV. Even SD usually doesn't look too bad when played on my 32-in, but I had some DVDs that were transcribed from video tape that sure looked awful on my 50-in! (The problem with larger TVs is that they magnify the flaws.)

My very humble setup:
Man Cave:Vizio E500i-A1 "Smart TV" (50-in 1080p 120Hz LED/LCD, has Netflix app.), Sony BDP-S3100 Blu-ray player, Roku N1000 (original model), PC (Windows 7), Comcast Internet (120Mbps/12Mbps).
Bedroom:LG 32LV3400-UA TV (32-in 768p 60Hz LED/LCD), HD DVR (Motorola RNG200N), Xfinity Comcast cable (Digital Preferred Plus), DVD/VHS player.

I just like to let people know about new stations and see if
anybody already has it.
jjeff already has DECADES and it's good info.


That being said my 42" Smartv also looks bad with SD channel. The newer SD's right now look good.
Here in Atlanta we just got LAFF and GRIT also COZI.
(CBS 46 cozi&grit)
Mark I also use a Samsung 32" as a monitor for shows I record.
I finally watched Mr.Peabody&Sherman on Netflix
Stunning..........2 years ago Netflix didn't look that good!

Hmmm . . .

Nah

That's why I don't have any subs in my guide.

Will 4k clean things up?


Will we see ATSC 3.0 or DVB-T2 in the next few years?

Not OTA. Look at how long it took them to go from NTSC to ATSC and the massive upheaval that caused.

Everybody is drooling over 4K, but the real story is OLED displays. The 55" 1080 LG OLED looks simply amazing.

Yes it was in color, no TV programs first run in B&W in my TV watching lifetime
Lots and lots of 4:3 though....

LG 42" 6200 series went into blink mode on 9-12-14.


The Power line is in a Vertical position. I did "Press" everything while I had it open.
That happened 1 year after purchase.


Works fine now.

The audio is either stereo or mono.

Given the anticipated bitrate, I'll bet I could fit the whole 3 seasons on 2 BD-R.

My earliest memory of TV was 7 over-the-air channels, all NTSC (analog) 4:3, all B&W!

We were the third family to get a color TV on the block, and by then you could watch some commercials in color. It was about a year later, in the mid 1960s (Wikipedia mentions 1965) that a big chunk of prime time went color, and shows televised in color were well advertised as being in color. Some shows went to color mid season, some at the start of a season.

I still get ribbed by a friend about how boring life must have been before the world acquired color.

Actually, there is an occasional good show from those B&W days and I could wholeheartedly recommend the old B&W The Outer Limits anthology Sci-Fi series to someone who likes science fiction ... lots of good stories there! And that is in spite of it being 4:3, SD, B&W! And that was indeed one of the shows I watched weekly on the brand new 21-in 4:3 color CRT SD TV in living B&W with the corners covered by the bevel to hide the distortions in the corners! (It wouldn't be until a decade later that I would learn that there actually is picture information in those corners!)

My very humble setup:
Man Cave:Vizio E500i-A1 "Smart TV" (50-in 1080p 120Hz LED/LCD, has Netflix app.), Sony BDP-S3100 Blu-ray player, Roku N1000 (original model), PC (Windows 7), Comcast Internet (120Mbps/12Mbps).

Decades broadcasts in stereo but according to Imdb Kung Fu(and probably pretty much all TV programs of the time I'd guess) is only mono.

A good morning for nostalgia -- it's rainy and dreary here.

Outer Limits ('63-65) was great in B/W and I remember it well. The reboot ('95-02) wasn't too bad, I liked it.
I recall Lost In Space ('65-68) was B/W in season 1 then went color for Season 2-3.
Star Trek ('66-69) was color from the start for all 3 seasons.

Depending on how Kung Fu turns out, if Decades ever binges Lost in Space or The Outer Limits (either original or reboot) I will record them also -- again, would not be able to resist. All of the various Star Trek series, from the original to Enterprise, are available on Amazon Instant Prime.

I watched the series premiere of The Messengers on The CW last night. USA Today gave it a horrible review but I like it so far. I'll be recording this one.
The first episode is available to stream at The CW website.

Thanks for the heads up Ken.F, too bad it wasn't yesterday when I would have been able to set it up to record
Normally my Tivo catches all "pilots" but because this show didn't use the word "pilot" in it's description, like basically all other pilots do, it failed to record
Oh and as much as it seems to me like the CW is constantly repeating things, the pilot will NOT be repeated on air at least not in the next 2 weeks.
You'd think a network would like to have as many people watch a pilot as possible, after all I can't be the only one who won't watch a series unless I catch the pilot, but I guess not on the CW....Other networks(ABC, CBS, etc.) have a nice habit of repeating something like a pilot at least once during the week following a pilot, it gives more people a chance of catching it or watching it after word of mouth like your post.
I don't really stream as my DSL is <1M and I don't like the jerky fuzzy video. Oh well, just more time for other things. I watch a few CW shows but for the most part I'm not really their target demo, my kids might be but even they didn't know about this new show, strike one and two for the CW

I am really enjoying the Decades channel. I guess at my age, I am reliving my youth, since I prefer the older TV shows vs. the new series shows. These "oldies" play well on my 6 year old LCD Olevia TV, of course my eyesight isn't that good anyway. I am using a roof top antenna that feeds my HDHomeRun tuners that is used by my $35 Android sick running OpenELEC for my stand alone PVR/DVR. My recordings are saved to my older Synology NAS.

Actually for a SD channel, 1Gb size isn't too bad of an average bitrate. Compare that to my local ABC HD channel that a 1hr program takes up less than 3Gbs Any movement looks like a macroblocking mess
Again compare this to my local CBS channel where a 1hr HD program takes more than 6Gbs, and this is the channel that has our DECADES sub channel, CBSHD looks great in my market

I'm not in the CW target demographic either. I don't remember how I found out about this show. I probably saw a promo for it while watching iZombie or the morning news. Our CBS channel shifts the local news broadcast over to the CW at 7:00AM. I set up a series recording for it then forgot about it until I noticed it recording last night.

I can put it up on MediaFire if you want it. Let me know and I'll upload it, then send you a PM with a download link and password.
Can you play h.264 mkv files? It's 3.14GB without commercials and the quality is still pretty good. You should be able to download that overnight at 1 Mbps. If that's too big I can compress it down further but the picture quality might take a hit.

"Messengers" was mentioned in several different posts in the Hot Off The Press: The Latest TV News and Information thread (a sticky thread in the top section of the HDTV Programming forum) several times before it aired. That's where I first found out about it.

There is also a The Messengers on the CW thread (also in the HDTV Programming forum) where the show can be discussed (and where I had already posted a comment).

My very humble setup:
Man Cave:Vizio E500i-A1 "Smart TV" (50-in 1080p 120Hz LED/LCD, has Netflix app.), Sony BDP-S3100 Blu-ray player, Roku N1000 (original model), PC (Windows 7), Comcast Internet (120Mbps/12Mbps).
Bedroom:LG 32LV3400-UA TV (32-in 768p 60Hz LED/LCD), HD DVR (Motorola RNG200N), Xfinity Comcast cable (Digital Preferred Plus), DVD/VHS player.

I can put it up on MediaFire if you want it. Let me know and I'll upload it, then send you a PM with a download link and password.
Can you play h.264 mkv files? It's 3.14GB without commercials and the quality is still pretty good. You should be able to download that overnight at 1 Mbps. If that's too big I can compress it down further but the picture quality might take a hit.
Thanks for the offer Ken.F, maybe I'll try and see if I can stream it at work over the lunch hour, I wouldn't think the CW would be a blocked site and I get good speed at work.
I also watch iZombie, although having a Tivo I never really see the commercials or promos, though probably miss out on things like upcoming shows doing that.

OK, but if you still want to download it maybe you can take a thumb drive to work with you and do it there.
