So basically the big announcement from the CW is that they now broadcast in widescreen? Welcome to 2002. I guess the folks over there need to lookup the definition of high definition.

I emailed the GM, Engineer, and Programming Manager using the contact info here, http://khon2.com/contact-us/ asking for clarification about the article you linked to. Have not gotten a response.

I want Ed on DVD/Blu-ray!

I got a question for Roku owners. If I use the Time warner app, can I access it on more than one roku at the same time? Also is it tagged to the service address or can I take a roku with me to a friend's house and watch there too?

I got a very prompt and helpful reply from the folks at KHON2. Apparently they had some equipment problems. Replacements are on their way, and once testing is done they should be able to get the HD feed going again.

The HD feed to their transmitter, to cable, to Dish, to DirecTV?

They weren't specific. Given that I didn't specify when I sent the email how I was viewing the signal, my bet is the issue is either with their receiving equipment or whatever converts it before it is sent to the various providers. I'm viewing via clear QAM on Oceanic. Is anyone on another provider or OTA seeing an actual HD signal?

Tonight I noticed the CW was in 720p HD over-the-air. Just a couple days ago it was 480i.

I'll have to check tomorrow during prime time. I'm looking at a Friends rerun right now that's showing 544x480 (so 480p in 4:3), but it could be that they don't up convert things and only broadcast in 720p when they actually have an HD signal.

Aloha,
I live on Kaua'i so u Hi people know our broadcast all come from Honolulu.
I live about 5 miles from the broadcast antennas(I live near Kapa'a). Broadcast towers in Lihue.
I am so fed up with oceanic and rising rates etc etc. Just noticed my rate went up. I am on the low rung for tv programming but I would get along fine with HD OTA and my pc for streaming the rest. I don't care about sports, the only thing I would miss is CNN since I can't stream that because they are not on the list of tv streamng available. I come here periodically when ready for a new update to my tv watching(great help with Panny problems and HT,mahalo a couple of years ago). So, after spending a lot of time to retrieve my password and get logged in I am finally reaady to ask my question.

Can anyone give me Hi related help with what works best for them in the way of an antenna, what I can receive(TVFool waiting to post my questions of reception there). People on the mainland have no idea what itis like to get certain things shipped here in the way of allowed,cost and availability. That was a rude awakening for me going through the HT process. I bought my 3K set up with out ever hearing any of it first. Just sayin.
I am technically challenged so as simple of terms as possible,please
Mahalo

I use antennaweb.org to try and figure out what I an get in a given place. I haven't done any OTA here in Hawaii, as both the place I'm in now and the one to which we are moving don't allow anything outside, and both include basic cable in the rent. I've always had good luck with ChannelMaster antennas, although all I've ever used are the larger outdoor ones.

After doing a little research and help from TV Fool it appears I am just out of luck and resign to getting scwd every tme the rates go up. I'm a news junkie and just don't want to have to break another habit. I can find the few bucks out of my shrinking purse elsewhere. Welcome to the New World.
>>> Thanks, I have used that site. I am about ready to see if there are any antennas(where have all the antennas gone? Graveyards, I guess) in my hood and go knock on the door. Talk about old school.

I'm on the east coast of Oahu, and after working with antennaweb and tvfool a few years ago, I decided I was also out of luck for over-the-air TV signals. Except a tall antenna might get me something from Maui, about 100 miles away, but at that time there were no digital transmitters on Maui. So I gave up.

If anyone feels like venting an opinion to our local TV stations KGMB-KHNL or Raycom, on the current DirecTV blackout, here is a Facebook statement from Hawaiinewsnow on the dispute, https://www.facebook.com/HawaiiNewsN...755479/?type=1, and this has phone numbers, too, including (808) 847-9395 for Hawaiinewsnow.

After reading some of the replies it seems it is happening with Raycom and some saying not Time Warner. Doesn't seem right they can hold local news hostage. Of course that is a silly notion. They have us by the cable cord with no OTA availability,especially here in Hawaii and definetly Kauai.
Boy, the future is now folks. Either pay their price or go to Roku or whatever. Then the rates on internet will go up. This was all set up by the BIG BOYS about 10 years ago(FCC and bureaucrats paid by telecommunication lobbyist)or so. Just like our banking fees,telephone rates and any modern convenience,not too mention gas prices,food. I guess the only people winning are the dividend holders and CEOs.
