The only thing unusual going on at either of these two stations is that there are less people there to not answer any of your questions because of the holidays!
Your sony HD 200 is a product made by LG not sony, I have the new hughes HTLHD and it is the exact same box as you are using, made by LG
just a different shell on it.
The way I use mine is thru DVI and the EZDVI setting, thru this setting I cannot change the aspect of these programs either, doesn't mean they are HD its just the settings I use, try changing your box settings and you will see you can change the aspect. Also even thought the guide data says HD i can assure you they AIN'T!
Try calling directly, 823-2828 and speak with any of the techs who are so tired of answering this question they are becoming rude, as is the programming director, general manager, and the receptionist, who get a weekly barrage of phone calls and emails from anyone I can get to call, I can assume I will be adding you to this list!
On another front has anyone seen the error problem with FOX56 lately?
Here there may be something going on, happens in prime time only it seems and my hughes keeps flicking back and forth between 720p and 480p? Although Rich is on vacation and I have not spoken with anyone directly, It makes me wonder if some new equipment is in place for the 720p changeover! Don't hold your breath its just what I see!
Back to the other two, I have said it before its time to start hitting them where it hurts! If you watch these channels digitally, which I refuse to do, only for this info, write down the name of their sponsors, I mean local spots
call them and ask for a manager, and politely tell them you will not support their product because of the stations lack of HD, and if they choose to run their sponsorship adds on WNEP, you will be glad to frequent their business again! Then thank them for their time.
If you are interested in receiving all networks in HD do a search in the HD programming Section of this board for my CBS HD thread, and read the post By Ken H. this will give you all you need to know on they grey market sats such as Bell expressVU, and how to do it. At this time this little project may be hitting my roof very soon, and bye bye to all my locals who dont do HD!
One last thing NO SOUND OF MUSIC IN HD LAST NIGHT! I hear holiday Zzzzzzz's coming from the WNEP eng. dept.!!!!!!!!!!!!!
