Has anyone successfully tuned in and recorded HD off of the new NBC3 channel? I was able to tune into the new station and watch Leno in HD last night on my Mitsubishi DTV box, but when I tried to access the channel on my Hipix, it was a no go. Just wondering if anyone else is having problems with NBC3. I did do a rescan of all channels, to no avail. Thanks.

Try channel 12-1. 12-2 remains Warner Brothers, so NBC has now
been "dumbed down" to fit into multichannel. This news has
appeared elsewhere in the forum.

Today I tuned NBC3 on my HiPix and I can
see a normal NBC (upconverted) picture on 12-1
but the 12-2 subchannel has some problems
with image breakup. I have not seen this before
(one subchannel OK, the other having problems),
so I suspect it may be a problem on their end.

Strange. I'm getting the exact opposite results. I can tune to 12-2, but 12-1 has many breakups. Of course, 12-1 is the station that I need!

Kevin - unfortunately the multicasting
(2 chans in the space of 1) degrades the
picture so even if you do get back to
recording the musical guests on Leno they
won't look as good as they did when it was
shown on KRON.
