I'm surprised anyone actually watches that. Their quality, or lack of hits new lows.

Free, abundant OTA television separates this country from many others. ATSC1 has only been in force since 2009. The wireless industry has enough spectrum. Enough of 'planned obsolesce'.

anyone having problems picking up CBC 5.1 (cblt)? I got a new tv and the signal is jumping from 50-60% to 0% back and forth. Everything else seems to be ok. I have even swapped out some cables and bought a new channel master 7777 pre amp with no luck

after further review it seems that i have a loss on the canadien stations broadcasting from the CN tower, Channels 5.1 19.1 and 41.1 all come in around 50-60% according to the Sony TV meter, However like i mentioned if u watch the meter it just jumps from 0%- 50 or 60% (depends on station) and then back to 0%. Everything else is working fine.

Fyi wbbz/metv

For anyone interested in Hogans Hero's and also Gilligan's Island (so far the earlier monochrome episodes), both are in HD. Apparently some time ago HD Net (for those who remember that) was running Hogans Hero's in HD from an apparently re-mastering and xfer of the films from the 70's. METV must of gotten their hands on these along with (as of now) B&W episodes of Gilligan's Island that were re-mastered.

They are not full width, but enough that it's easy to tell (other than the boost in quality). If nothing else, none of those annoying WBBZ side bars. The previous episodes of HH's had very good SD quality, especially color quality. This started around the middle of August.

I wouldn't exactly put GI in the same category as HH's as far as production quality of the series, but it is welcome change. Too bad more of the programming from the 60's & 70's isn't re-mastered.
