This afternoon I called WDIV and inquired about their SD feed on 45-2. I talked to a great guy, Ed, in engineering and he said they were not aware of the problem but he would check it and call me back. A few minutes later the signal popped back in and then he returned my call! He said that they monitor the HD feed but just check on the SD feed from time to time. We talked for a bit , he was interested to hear I was getting a great signal up this way. It's nice when people take the time to give a call back, and I told him that there are a few of us out there that appreciate the efforts of all involved in bringing us HD.

Matt ,
I am glad WDIV and WJBK broadcast the SD feed on the subchannels. It looks better in 480i mode than the 2-1 (58-1) or 4-1 (45-1) do when they are not broadcasting actual HD material. Of course for FOX this is never. I use a DST-3000 most of the time.

I like having the SD feed so I can use the fill mode with letter boxed shows like West Wing and ER. From what I have read most of the stuff on NBC should be Hd in the fall.
