Watching NBC nightly news that I recorded earlier today now. It's clear. Same good quality as it was before the remapping.

Ch. 10 news is in HD. The studio looks great. All of the field reports are in HD, which also look great.

They showed HD sports highlights from ESPNHD but were not able to show an NBC Golf highlight in HD. I wonder why?

Miami now has three news stations in HD. Come on CBS, get your studio ready.

Ch. 10 News looks simply awesome! Field stuff is just fabulous in HD - Ch. 7 folks especially will be drooling when they see that. Studio, graphics, and sound are near perfect IMO. It was almost worth the wait.

Ch. 4 needs to get it together quickly, as they look just horrible compared to everyone else, especially Ch. 10.

BTW, Ch.35 (Ion) is still 480i. Anyone know when they'll flip to HD?

And what in the world has Ch. 6 done to their sound?!?!? For some reason, most of their stuff sounds like it's out of phase or pseudo-stereo or something bizarre. Nothing comes out the center channel; what should be in the center comes from all around. Very annoying to say the least. It's not NBC, as Ch. 5's sound is "normal". Only NBC6's sound is strange.

I totally agree about Ch. 10. The field reports in HD are awesome. I used to never watch Ch. 10 news but I think I am going start watching a lot more now.

NBC (Ch. 6) is suddenly very loud. I don't know what happened but it started a few days ago.

I started getting random intermittent signal drops from a few seconds to what seemed like 10 seconds. I noticed it Sunday watching the motocross races and basketball game on channel 4.1 then on 51.2 in the evening. It looks just like when you loose the signal because its weak and it goes black I guess thats the best way I can explain it but it did not give the weak or no signal dialog it just went black then came back. I also noticed sometimes it would come back but without audio for a few more seconds.

Its a new lcd tv with OTA antenna

Anyone watching the races or game Sun experience it?

Their newscast also has a new graphics package which in my opinion doesn't look as good as their previous one.

Who dropped the ball at NBC6?

No one dropped the ball - it is all planned!

According to a poster on the below link, CBS (Ch. 4) news will be going HD before July.

Look for posts from a poster called "Graham" http://www.sfltv.com/2009/03/28/vide...dios/#comments

I just LOVE Channel 10 in HD. A far cry from Stretch-O-Vision.

I wrote to Channel 6 about their audio last Friday. So far, no response. Their local news has very low volume and their network shows are very loud. It's very annoying. I'll be watching Channel 10 news and switching to Channel 6 for network shows only.

Thank goodness the days of Stretch-O-Vision appear to be over. Ch. 10 is just wonderful now, especially with HD field reports. Nobody comes close.

I also wrote to Ch. 6 last week, and like you, I received no response as of yet. The audio issue is certainly noticeable enough that someone technical should've picked up on it; I can't believe that it hasn't been resolved.

For Advanced Cable customers: They are adding WSFL CW (39) HD on April 15th.

It's about time.

Advanced cable is removing channel 98 (G4 TV channel) as of May 4. What a shame. It is one of my favorite channels. The only way to get it is to subscribe their Digital Plus package for $25 a month. What a ripoff. They rewmove the channel and give no channels in return.

ION is now broadcasting 720p HD on 35-1. Interestingly, they're also broadcasting 3 SD sub-channels.

I just became a new dish subscriber after a long time with DTV. I wanted to ask about the RSN's in HD for those who have Dish. Is it just one channel for both HD & SD broadcast on SUN & FSNFL? Or do they have separate channels for HD?

If you figure out what's on 64, please let me know. I asked about that one a while ago and nobody knew.

What programming is on W57DU-D?

Trip, It was some paid program about some hair ironing device ans was in Spanish. I believe eventually one of the programs will be with a comic named Eddie Calderon who does imitations.

BTW I can only pick this channel through a digital converter box connected to a tube. My top of the line hd digial television using ota antenna will not pick it up neither will it pick up several other channels the converter picks up.

64.64 was too blocky not sure how you call it or broken up to make out

I follow.

Well, if you happen to figure out if 57-1 has a programming source of some kind aside from infomercials, let me know.
