So I wonder if 21.3 is carried by any cable tv systems. Most people, except maybe the people on this forum, wouldn't even know about it. To me, the CW just lost almost all its subscribers in the Harrisburg area.

I'm sure the cable companies have the new signal. They probably get a fibre feed of the station so it didnt matter if it was on 15-1, 21-3, or mythical 66-6.

I believe I found the answer. I'm at work and checked the Directv guide online. It has channel 23 as WHP CW, so apparently they put it on a different channel. I will go home and see if I have 23 and add it to my guide. So if anyone has Directv and looking for the CW, I think its on 23 now.

Well, Directv channel 23 is WHP CW but its not in HD. Its some weird stretched format with skinny bars on the side. So anyone in the Harrisburg market with Directv lost it in HD. I won't be using 23 at all.

The formatting of the CW on 21.3 (Channel 23 on DirecTV) is definitely weird. What is puzzling is that 21-2 (22 on DirecTV) is well formatted. The CW picture is certainly not enticing. I actually won't be watching till it's back in HD with some normal formatting.

I got to see the CW on Dish yesterday and their formatting and picture on WHP 21-3 is as good as DirecTV's is bad. I don't know if Dish is receiving a different feed of 21-3 but the picture is definitely much better on Dish.

I was away from home for about 10 days and returned home yesterday. I found that DirecTV has corrected the aspect ration problems and the CW on DirecTV channel 23 looks very good.
