Just wondering what your setup is if so. I'm in Hopkins Co. and plan to pick up the Evansville channels. KET is already broadcasting Hi-Def on their channel -4. Evansville should have their second channel online soon (ch.14 wfie).

Actually, that -04 channel on KET is not HD. The demo loop is 16:9 but the bitrate is lowered quite a bit since they multi-cast. And, I remember a posting by Woowoo or William Smith, WKPC-DT in Louisville is the only one at the moment capable of broadcasting HD. Although, they are down waiting on a replacement receiver to replace one that went bad. Hopefully that will be back up this week if not already.

Nightowl is right
the -04 channel is 16 x 9 standard def.
Our statewide distribution system cannot handle the bitrate for HD just yet.
But we are on the air with digital television...

Louisville should be fixed now.......
(Thanks to our transmitter engineers)
