Cool. I watched some Letterman as well, for the first time in ages. The picture looked pretty good. His show was rather fuzzy looking, though. Commercials were razor sharp.
I also got about the first 2/3rds of the newscast in as well. Man, what a difference. It looks like a real modern TV newscast now! The colors and whiteness were balanced and the graphics looked sharper. Nice.
There's been some hope expressed about WABG hopefully modernizing with the buildout of the WNBD facility, maybe this will put some pressure on them. When they added the Fox subchannel, I understand they had to build a small control room at the tower (instead of in-studio) so I don't know why the Fox feed managed to look as bad as the ABC feed. Local content and all Fox content has audio problems, as well. It's very very watery and sparkly sounding, like very low bitrate internet audio.
My next task will be trying to get Tribune to show the HD tag correctly. They show all the Fox content as HD and all the ABC content as SD. It's actually the other way around.
