I also saw that message this morning.
Only a couple weeks ago did I remove the line saying NO LISTINGS from my Tivo grid I left it up so I'd know right away when they added listings.....didn't think about the message that Tivo sends out. Oh well, don't really plan on watching it anyway, the only reason I kept it up was to see when the Mexican DWTS came back on, but the picture quality is so atrocious I don't know if I could stomach watching it anyway, that and the fact that I wouldn't have a clue what they were saying Nope, WUMN is just another one of the multitude of LPSs I can receive but never watch.....

It doesnt make sense as to why the picture looks like hell. The master feed from C-Band looks fine and when WUMN went digital it was **fine**....well better than it is now.

KSTP ABC 13.21GB (the 3:45 length game was 14.05)
WCCO CBS 24.37GB
KARE NBC 21.61GB (recorded 3 hours 25 minutes)
WUCW CW 20.72GB (recorded 3 hours 35 minutes)...a 3 hour recording was 17.72GB
KMSP FOX 20.27GB (recorded 3 hours 25 minutes from 9-9)
a couple more from the weekend
WFTC FOX 15.4 (this was from 9-1 this week)
KSTC IND 14.3 (this was a 3 hour recording from the prep bowl)

So the 9-9 version does take more bandwidth than 9-1 does

Well northpine.com explained why Telemundo went to 25 and not 43

Spanish-language network Telemundo is now available on Minneapolis broadcast TV for the first time: Former TBN affiliate KJNK-LD is now carrying Telemundo on channel 25.1, along with DrTV on 25.2. The sale follows King Forward, Inc.'s purchase of the station from Regal Media, which had purchased it from longtime operator TBN a few years ago. King Forward is a sister company to DTV America, which recently bought former Home Shopping Network station K43HB-D from Ventana Television. A website set up at telemundomn.com indicates "Telemundo Minnesota" is being operated by Santamaria Broadcasting, which also runs "La Raza" KMNV/1400 (St. Paul) and KMNQ/1470 (Brooklyn Park). Meanwhile, DTV America said in an FCC filing that channel 43, which has changed its callsign to KMBD-LD, is off the air while it prepares to construct a new facility.

I'm glad they explained that
So now we have both UNI and Telemundo in digital in MSP, wonder how long it will take Tivo(Tribune) to get Telemundo in it's guide......as we all know it over a month to get UNI added
