This has been this way for some time. KFSF and KDTV are paired up like KUVS and KTFK over here, showing Univision and UniMas in HD on both stations. I did notice something very strange. Although the same program was on UniMas on both KDTV and KUVS, they had completely different commercials.

In the Salinas market KSBW is showing NBC and ABC in HD and KION has CBS and Telemundo in HD. This may become the norm if channel sharing becomes a reality.

They likely did not get it set up completely and correctly. When the 5 PM news approached they put it back so that the station would not lose any money during the big $$$ 5 PM news.

One or two commercials missed during the 5 PM news would be more that 2.4 would earn in many months. And what 2.4 will earn in many months would not equal the overtime for an engineer to come in at 2 AM.

Ever read the ATSC spec? I just skimmed it and was astounded by what I learned. Tune your HDTV to a different station, that's in it.

KTVU 2.4 Buzzr seems to be fixed. I'm now receiving it on all of my receivers. They've got some really old game shows. "To Tell The Truth" is on now and Johnny Carson and a very young Betty White are on the panel.
