So the contention by perilous is that NYC only gets MPEG2 locals (80, 82, etc)?
Here in Los Angeles we get the MPEG2 locals (81, 83, etc) but also get the MPEG4 version when we hit our local HD channel numbers (2,4,5,7,11).
It has been my understanding that such has also been happening in NY, so that MPEG4 signals ARE available for the local stations. They just aren't numbered 80, 82, and 84, but rather 2, 4, 5, 7, and 11.
(The MPEG2 channels in the 80s are used for DNS viewers and are not spot beamed. Their quality is markedly worse than the OTA signals.)
But I could well be wrong. Perilous does seem on top of the situation.
