Does WMYA have anything in HD? If not, Charter's analog version will suffice.

Yes, they show a few shows in HD but not many at all. Frankly, I don't think I have ever recorded/watched anything on the channel. But I do see a few things in the guide that are HD.

[quote=cruxer;11775917]A couple of folks in other markets have complained on DBSTalk about the same popping, so I think it's probably a national NBC issue. I hope they get it fixed soon, because it's very annoying.


The Atlanta NBC outlet does not have the pop. ??? I have been watching the NBC evening news on both WXIA and WYFF, I only get the popping on ch 4. Some body somewhere has a problem.

Yea, this popping during BIONIC WOMAN sucked. Seemed to be most noticable while music was played in background during show.

Anyway, does anyone have TV GUIDE's TVGOS / Gemstar programming built into their TV or DVD/VCR, etc? The programming in my LG sets with built in DVRs have been ending recordings too short recently..... see post at:

Well I hopped on here to complain about the popping on WYFF but I see the ball is already rolling ... does anyone have a contact at the station that we can get in touch with regarding this annoyance?

I sent an email from their website to engineering over a week ago with no response. Maybe we could get "7 On Your Side" to investigate for us?

They only have plans to add A&E, History, and Golf/Versus. Which is a shame since those seem like they would be the least requested of all the channels they can add. TBS HD should at least be high up on their priority but I get the feeling they don't even know the channel exists. So I wouldn't count on seeing any new HD channels this year besides those.

well correct me if I'm wrong but I believe the playoffs are the only thing TBS is actually showing in HD right now. That being the case I am willing to wait on that one if it means we actually get channels that show HD content.

Well, I sent my email to WYFF via this page (along with a link back to this page, so they could see I'm not alone---Hello, WYFF, if you're watching!):
http://www.wyff4.com/contactus/index.html

I sent it to "Engineering" but if someone else wants to try some different departments as well, go ahead. I am beyond fed up with this popping crap. You would hope it wouldn't take over 2 weeks to correct...

Their original shows will also be shown in HD. Based on the press release, some of the syndicated shows will apparently be shown in HD (non-stretched) as well.

I sent messages to both (Engineering and Management) ... surely after multiple weeks, though, they are aware of this problem ... right?

just a follow-up on the WHNS issues with the Panthers game last Sunday, did anyone ever get in contact with them and find out why the ball was dropped on that one? With the World Series on the horizon I would hate to see the same thing happen there!

I sent them an email and they asked for more details about the problem. I never heard anything back from them after that though.

Here's hoping for HD for the Panthers/Saints game tomorrow. I really don't want to have to call them again.


But I have their number just in case.

I was just on TitanTV and they've added the new Charter HD channels to the lineup.

They list the following as new additions:

794 Golf/Versus
795 A&E HD
796 History Channel HD

so it looks like those are going to pop up shortly for sure.

I just added Spartanburg, SC to my TitanTV Account and they've added FSN HD (798) and MoJo (799) to its Charter Listing, as well (unless they've always been part of the lineup). None of these have been added to Charter's Asheville listing, yet....

Both have been there for a long time... FSN is only part time of course when an event is on, and MoJo has been listed as the PPV channel ever since they added it a long time ago. I wish they would actually add MoJo though.

anyone have any reccomendations on a good indoor antenna? I've got some amplified RCA junk I bought last month when I got my new TV and thus far am still picking up WLOS(13.1), and WYCW(62.1) with good signal all the time, WEMT(39.1) most of the time, and the occasional 33.x unc tv stations. I have been keeping it turned up all the way thus far. Unfortunately I'm in an apartment complex that does not allow me to put up a dish for directv or dish netowork, and am waiting on charter to let me know (i have to wait a week or more )if they can service my location or not (my address doesn't exist according to them).

Where's the general area that you're trying to get Charter Service? I'm just outside the city limits of Weaverville and can get the same stations that you've mentioned with the Radio Shack VHF/UHF/HD/FM Indoor TV Antenna (22dB amplifier with gain control). Unfortunately, we're at the mercy of the mountains and signals bounce like crazy in the valleys, so even these signals are very sketchy from where I'm at (wished CW were clearer since we don't get that in HD on Charter). My apartment is on a lower level (a.k.a. basement level) with trees obstructing the southern view, so I can't get any dish service with D* or E*.

BTW, your apartment complex can't prohibit you from having a satellite dish unless there's a legitimate safety or historic preservation purpose for doing so. There is an FCC Directive Online that outlines the rules, contains links to the laws established and a Toll-Free Number which you can report your apartment complex for the violation: http://www.fcc.gov/mb/facts/otard.html .

Good luck with the Antenna Search!

I just did a Live Chat with a Charter Cable CSR to inquire once again whether AVL/Buncombe customers would be getting any new HD chanenls in the near future. While there wasn't any indication of channels being added here , I mentioned that TitanTV.com had added A&E HD, History Channel HD and Versus/Golf Channel HD to their listings for GSP Charter Cable. The CSR's response was "Yes, those are the new HD channels that Charter is going to launch." I didn't ask when they'd launch, but it looks like at least you guys in GSP will see those pretty soon.

According to the CSR, AVL/Buncombe is a different system from GSP, so it isn't a hook-line-sinker deal that what you folks get in GSP will be added at the same time here in AVL/Buncombe (this would explain the discrepancy between TitanTV's listings for AVL and GSP Charter Cable Customers). I figured you'd want to know this information.

There's a Mojo logo that periodically shows up on my Moxi for 799, but it's always been their HD PPV channel...or what they call HD PPV, at least.

I'm in North Asheville and I'm in a 2nd floor apt. and my apt. has no balcony with windows looking out to the southeast. There are 2 things that may allow them to find a loophole in the fcc directive though. One is that I have no place to be able to put a dish that is "exclusive" to my apt. They would have to put it in the flower bed at ground level, or attach it to the outside of the building. The other thing is that we have a boxless crappy custom channel lineup sd directv feed included in our rent. Charter is coming out to see if I can get service from them but it's going to take them a week or longer (blah) to let me know whether or not I can use them.

I just read some more of that FCC document and it looks like it doesn't apply to my complex. Because they have a common use dish/antenna they don't have to allow me to put my own dish up. This blows...I shouldn't be disallowed from spending my money on hd from directv or dish network just because we already have an SD dish feed coming in here.

Ouch.....Well, at least you now know the complex isn't pulling a fast one on you. Hopefully, Verizon and AT&T will come in and make the market more competitive here...
