Whoa, Guffy, I understand that you have a problem with multi-casting from your previous posts, but save your sarcasm. We are on the same team here. Your ire would better be directed at the two stations in the market (ABC and FOX) that make no attempt whatsoever at broadcasting HD, than for picking on NBC who does it with subchannels. You have some sort of problem with your receiver or your television or Charter. I watch over the air HD TV nearly every single night, and do not have any problems with pixellation or motion artifacts on either CBS or NBC. I will grant you, a SECOND SD subchannel could indeed cause a problem on certain types of broadcasts, i.e. sports with quick camera movements and picture changes. Perhaps they may want to shut down one of the their subchannels when they begin Sunday Night Football. However, for the majority of the prime time programming that 7 & 4 broadcasts, there are no issues with my television, and I am picking the signal up a long ways from the transmit site. I give them credit, as they invested A LOT of money in putting a digital signal on the air, and I don't blame them for trying to recoup some of that money with additional channels. Again, if you are going to get upset, get upset with Fox 33, who will again be broadcasting the lions in SD this fall, with no real plans to upgrade. Or 29 & 8, who can't ante up the money to put a few microwave hops between TC and Kalkaska.
