Alright good news DD5.1 fans. I just talked with the engineer over at WSAV. The guy over there was VERY helpful!
Here is what I found out:
They are in between companies for their data services. Media General has been a little fickle as to which company they want to use to send the channel remaps, time, programming info, etc. They are still working on that, and expect to have it back sometime soon.
Second: They are currently working on DD5.1 sound for the DTV. He said it could be online as early as 2-3 weeks from now but definately by the end of the year. He also believes WTOC is working on this.
Third: Look for WSAV to become a full power DTV blow torch summer 2005. They will be moving the signal out to their big tower and increasing the power.
Finally: Media General plans to begin local HD in 2006, however, the engineer is doubtful that they will make that target date due to the high cost.
I will let yall know if I find out any more information.
