The Colorado Springs locals showed up on my 3 receivers automatically. By the way, ABC (KRDO) is on now too. I would say the picture quality on 5, 8, 11, 13 is really good and 2, 21, 57 are not as good. Since 2 and 57 are smaller stations, the source may be the reason. I've seen a few pixellations on different channels so far but need to keep watching for it.
Also interesting that there is no program guide information at the moment for 2 and 57, but for WB and UPN, who cares? I agree with royrose, I only watched KWGN/2 for Rockies games, never for WB. I guess we will never get Denver's UPN/20 for Rockies/Avalanche since Colorado Springs has a UPN on 57. Guess I'll cut my cable service down to just the "Lifeline" (cheap, unadvertised) package of analog channels 2-13, in order to get the UPN/20 weekend Rockies games on cable channel 6.
ChanceG, I know what you mean about Tivos. It's inconceivable to leave them, once you've stopped watching commercials and stopped caring what time a show is on. I have 2 DirecTivos, one in the home theater room with the DirecTV HD box. That's either overkill or the best of both worlds, depending on your perspective. But those 2 boxes will be sold on eBay as soon as the HD-DirecTivo comes out at the end of the year.
I knew that the titantv.com dates for FOX and PBS going digital on May 1 in Colorado Springs wouldn't come to pass.
Hopefully the rumors about D*'s upcoming HD package are true, adding ESPN-HD and Discovery-HD, etc. Especially since E* announced yesterday they are going to unveil a new a new "SuperDish Technology" capable of providing consumers "up to" 50 HDTV channels. Hopefully D* won't get left in the dust since I'm under contract!
