That is too funny. I can't get my wife to care about HD.

You know what I find hilarious, even abit disturbing? Now that KOAA is the last of the big four to broadcast in HD, they continue to advertise themselves as the Technology Leader for Southern Colorado. What a joke, we need to somehow let them know that they are in fact the technology laggards...

Well, having an electrical engineering degree might help. But my husband has two EE degrees and doesn't share my enthusiasm, so who knows....

Looks very good here. Oddness on my HdTiVo. I am getting signal strength of 71 on one OTA tuner but only around 35 on the second tuner. I am getting lots of breakup with occational stretches of a beautiful picture.

George Lopez, and Freddie on Wednesdays is pretty good. I will have to surf now for more HD.

Here is a list of abc shows and specials (not necessarily in HD): http://abc.go.com/allshows.html

and hoping for KOAA to go high def I don't see anything great in their tv line up besides Jay Leno, future NFL games, and maybe movies if they show any.

KOAA and HDTV - Updated 11-14-05
On November 12 th 2004, the FCC granted KOAA their Construction Permit (CP) for Digital Television (DTV) KOAA-DT. KOAA has purchased the associated digital transmitter equipment from the manufacturer, the installation of some of the equipment is in progress. The construction process of the transmitter building has begun as well. The estimated time of building completion is December 2005, after which the installation of the previously purchased equipment can be installed weather permitting. The on air date of KOAA-DT is tentatively scheduled for February 1, 2006. Programming will be all standard definition digital and will have 4 hours of High Definition in prime time hours, as well as a few programs during the daytime schedule when it is available. The format (4X3 vs. 16X9) will depend on the supplier of the programs, our NBC HDTV should always be in 1080i. For more information on HDTV in general go to the Advanced Television web site.

I'm sure they'll fall behind this a little, but it still sounds like not too long.

My favorites would be Leno, Olympics, ER. Come to think of it, I only stopped watching ER when I got HDTV and Colorado Springs didn't.

Awesome...I really hope they can make the switch before the Olympics. Analog channels look so poor on my TV (partially due to the poor job the MOXI DVR does) that I can't (and don't) even watch them anymore.

Hope you'll enjoy them in SD. Their TV broadcast said this morning that they will be broadcasting "some/most live events in HD" but will not be broadcasting any delayed programming at this time. Gotta love 'em.

Hello! That's a significant announcement as all our prime-time shows would be considered delayed 1 hour from the East Coast feeds. Oh well, we'd better keep the NY feeds.

I remember that one of their few e-mail responses posted earlier in this thread said that they would start out with live events. Delaying HD material requires a server that is the commercial equivalent of a TIVO but much more sophisticated and expensive.

I don't know if anyone remembers where in this thread that post is.

When and how did they make the announcement?

Good morning america is not in HD on KRDO this morning.

%&$# dammit. I remember now Joe Reed stating something to that effect in his e-mail reply late last fall. Grr... Sigh... Hopefully it will be sooner rather than later.
