At midnight last night the subchannel came on line. I have literally no idea what programming they are currently running. For most of the night, it appeared to be a father/son Canadian detective team. The programming guide on the WTOV website is bork'd right now.

The picture looks clean and crisp, as opposed to the hazy Youngstown FOX station. It is currently coming in 720p.

So what happened on WTRF 7 then? Did they add anything or just have CBS & ABC now?

WTOV FOX 9 is broadcasting in HD on Directv. WTRF has removed FOX and has now CBS HD and MyTV and ABC 480i.

Trip,
I just checked but they are not on the air or I could not receive them.
They were at one time broadcasting FOX in HD.

I just spoke to someone at WTOV and she already had an email from above her to read to me and others with the same issue.
She said that they are broadcasting an HD signal to directv but that directv is sending it out in standard.
She told me we would have to contact directv. 1-800-531-5000 or email local-business directv.com. add the @. Cant post emails yet
Hope this helps, thanks for the quick reply.
I'll be calling them when I get off work.

They told me they were sending it over to engineering to take as look at, and might be a few days.
I'm going to give them that and then email and or call back for an update.
