86 and 87 are in my guide, but I can't see them because I don't live in an O&O.

Anyone?

I'm getting 86 & 87 DNS in West Texas. My life is now complete. I'm getting all 4 networks in HD (both E and W), while my neighbors suffer with fuzzy basic cable (or worse). This has been a good year for HD.

On here in the NY market....although I'm seeing the same problems that I see on FOX and ESPN on 24FPS material with the Samsung 360. I sure hope they come up with a fix for this soon. :rolleyes:

Same here in NY. Not flagged on the account, while all of the others are, but it is live. Just in time for the bowl games!

Happy New Year everyone.

Neither Fox-HD nor ABC-HD are listed separately on my account, just ABC and Fox---but I am getting E/W of both these networks in HD.

Looks much better than the SD feeds, even though what's on now isn't HD. Or am I dreaming?
