George It appears that you have been given faulty information on the Hammond, LA. system. Intentional or due to lack of technical knowledge is anyone's guess.
It's even worse than it was nine months ago.
The current state is that 5 (five)
6mhz carriers have 3 HD channels assigned to them. The carriers are 579, 597, 783, 807 and 831. I have not yet checked to see if any digital/nonHD channels have been crammed onto any of these carriers yet. That will be take a lot of time.
579 has three locals, ABC, CBS and PBS. A BIG
597 has three channels, HD Theater, HDNet and HDNet Movies. Given that these three channels have arguably THE BEST HD programming available ANYWHERE
, combining/rate shaping/muxing all three to one carrier is a TRAVESTY of biblical proportions
783 has three pay movie channels, TMC, SHO2 and SHOwest. A problem.
807 has three channels but only one has continuous programming, FSNHD, HDPPV and TNTHD. No problem there.
831 has three channels, WEHD, AMCHD, and IFCHD. A problem but most of the programming is upconverted SD anyway, but that will change in the future.
Hope to hear from you soon.
