Either way I don't like letterboxing either. I want my screen to be filled. IF that makes me a hedonist , then call me one. The only time I let my picture stay with black bars is if it improves my picture quality on older sd shows.

Speaking of KAOB , I am watching RETRO channel 27-6 . The picture is having digital blurring in certain scenes and it is random. I am also getting signal drop outs on the channel too. I get about 62 strength on my receiver. Might be related , but I wish that they would increase the strength on the signal and correct the blurring of the scenes.

Hope to increase power soon....As to the blurring, I am working on the ATSC encoder to try to fix that....hope to have it corrected it in the near future....

A poll for all, which channel is your favorite on KAOB?

Good news. So far RETRO is my favorite. I love all the old tv shows and classics like Mystery Science Theater.

While I am asking for more power and better picture quality for the KAOB channels , how come we can't get PSIP data so we can at least know what we are watching? What's more , where can we get guide data for the schedule of shows online. IS there a website with that information ? Metv has guide information online for all it's channels if you plug in the zipcode. Would really like to know what is coming on and when.

EPG (not PSIP) or Electronic Program Guide, is an independently provided system for LPs...they usually get it from a third party over the internet..and that cost $$...to see what is on the different channels, you can go to the providers web sites..

Hearthland 27.1
FamilyTV 27.3
Revn 27.5
Retro 27.6

I wouldn't look for it on any LP in the area soon..

So I know the difference between Electronic Guide and PSIP. Almost all ota channels give you PSIP data so you know what program you are watching when you tune to it. As for the guide data , I mean is there a website for KOAB that provides you the extended guide for the week you are on like Metv does , for each of the sub channels ? Otherwise I have no way of knowing what is on unless I sit there at the beginning of the show like the old days. So is there a website for KOAB or do you have to look at the website for each channel itself?
