Recorded Killers of Kilimanjaro from 30-2 last night and edited out the commercials with VideoReDo. Pleasantly surprised at the 4.74mbps bitrate (though I still don't like that much bandwidth siphoned off from 30-1). That's nearly double the bitrate from 11-2 ThisTV. But I gotta hope they'll actually broadcast some 16:9 movies if they're gonna broadcast a 16:9 signal. Seems kind of pointless if they're just going to play the same old 4:3 pan and scan movies with black bars on the sides.
BUT while editing the commercials, VideoReDo saw the file as 16:9. And while playing back the edited file, VLC saw it as 16:9.
By the way, KDNL is on Facebook at "KDNL ABC St. Louis." There's no provision for posting a message to their page, other than replying to posts they've already made themselves. I did that recently to ask when we're going to see Grit TV on 30-3, which was announced several weeks ago. They had no idea.
