I think what's most frustrating about WDSI is that the FOX HD channel was working fine 2 weeks ago and they screwed it up! It seems pretty obvious that they have changed something while trying to bring that silly MyNetwork subchannel online.
Maybe I'm just stupid, but it seems that it'd be better to have actually have the FOX HD channel working before worrying about getting MyNetwork subchannel up. WDSI is only about 3 years behind the other stations in the area regarding HD, and when they finally get it working, they break it.
Apparently they are just too dumb to just revert back to however they had it set up two weeks ago. I understand that you can have hardware/software issues that cause the OTA signal to go down from time to time, but that is not the case here. The signal is going out, it's just set up incorrectly so that most set top boxes and MCE boxes can't understand it.
I mean, the people at WDSI make it sound like they are reinventing the wheel. All of these issues have happened in other markets, and have been sorted out and corrected. Hell, they've been stalling HD for three years in Chattanooga. Any problem they may have has already been encountered and been fixed somewhere, probably several years ago!!! You'd think that station engineers would talk to each other????
Oh wait, Mr. Motley is obviously too busy screwing up the HD channel and ignoring e-mails to actually talk to some other station engineer who might be able to help him sort things out.
