Yes, very crap-tastic dropouts on analog cable in EL right now... but it could be just my place.

I doubt it's just you, since digital is bad in Meridian at the moment.

I've got the DVR set for plenty of HD recording while I'm gone and a day of recovery to watch before going back to the office

since yesterday I lost my extra digi channels that I was recieving over basic comcast. I'm not in lansing, more south, but its dissapointing. I was recieving many channels through qam on 21-x,x,x,x and 22-x,x,x(up to 10 channels at times). They were strange though as they would randomly pause, ffwd, rwd, ect like it was someone else's dvr?? weird because they also were different stations all the time.

The channels that would randomly rewind and such were others on demand streams. You may want to rescan as things most likely got shuffled around with the channel additions and changes taking place. However, only the basic channels should be in the clear, everything else is a bonus and may be taken away without notice.

The four new Comcast HD channels showed up today despite their not being able to move the analog public access channels into the digital realm.

Yeah, still no change in Meridian.

Update: Spoke to Comcast rep on the phone. The HD channels are still listed as "Coming Soon", but there's no more specific details available.

I wonder whether Comcast is holding off our upgrade because of Meridian's role in the PEG lawsuit...

is up with comcast - There's super pixelation going on, especially for sports. Most of it is unwatchable. Its even going on in the non digital channels. Anybody else getting this?

I've had sound drop out for a few seconds every few minutes as well as frequent image disruptions in Meridian for about a week now.

Comcast was unwatchable last night - video/sound drop outs constantly. This has been going on and getting increasingly worse all week in Grand Ledge, at least at my home.

Tech comes today, which scared the **** out of my cable, so it straightened up before he arrived, naturally. He could find nothing wrong and said there was no common problem like mine being reported. Just to give him a good demo, I dvr'd my attempt at watching the Office last night - looked like a jig saw puzzle.

my on demand streams are officially gone since the 15th. Its dissapointing even though they were free and random for the 1st couple weeks of my qam TV arriving, I autoscaned and nothing, and do regular scans on those channels where they once were and no hits at all, Oh well.

btw does anyone else w/ comcast have random probs w/ cbs hdtv? I get some lines across the screen(which I would call noise not sure if thats the correct term?) and sometimes the audio is slightly garbled for a couple seconds at a time randomly.

Anyone having problems with accessing OnDemand on Comcast in Lansing? We picked up a digital box last weekend, and it's very hit or miss.

We press the button to go to OnDemand, the screen says "Welcome to OnDemand", then inevitably we get an error and a message to call tech support if it continues.

*sigh*

Our cable and modem has been in and out during the day all week while I assume they work on it. It might be related to your on-demand (which I haven't used in a while) problems. We still have no new channels in east lansing, but they did say the upgrade would go from Dec. to June.

Racing season is underway. The green flag is out at the Rolex 24 at Daytona. Fox even carried the first hour. Speed Channel has several hours of coverage yet to come, and ol' Speedyvision finally turned on the HD for us.

Does WLNS support Gemstar-TV guide data yet? Heard the new Sling TR-50 would use it when it gets released this summer.

Anyone else in East Lansing or Meridian getting NBATV for free right now? Auto-search on my QAM tuner picked it up last night, and when I checked my cable box, I found it's on there, too. Not getting the rest of the sports tier (NFL, etc.), just NBATV. QAM has been getting the Travel Channel all month as well, and I don't think that's even supposed to be offered around here.

Ahh, the comforts of home...

Got back in at 1am on Thursday, but haven't been to the PC much. Had a death in the family that had to be dealt with when I got home, then spent the weekend getting the house and life back in order. Now back to the office grind...

Glad to hear that the Comcast subs finally got some more HD channels and that Comcast didn't wait for the PEG move (cept EL/Merdian).

Didn't notice anything new on D* for HDs from when I was gone. Still awaiting the Outdoor channel and Travel channel to pop up in HD.

It was weird, but I didn't miss HDTV at all while I was gone. I know, shocking

Not many changes from the last almost two weeks, had some D* reception issues last night...

TP 1-2 on 103b/c were about 20pts lower than the rest of the TPs and TP2 would drop to 0 many times. It appears that my box went back to a national release rather than the CE that I was on. I didn't realize this until Sunday night and I was too tired Friday or Saturday to worry about downloading the new releases.

Its nice to be home, but I miss the beach and ocean.

It's time to give props to WLNS for the HD crawl generator!!!

Now we need WHTV to go HD and Lansing's CW to get a separate transmitter so it isn't a digital sub.

It's about time you showed back up, Jeff. I was beginning to think we needed to send a search party out.

See #923, wonderful vacation, followed by family issues

Its all good now, just awaiting the birth of my first nephew in the next week or so.

Before Comcast carried WLAJ in HD, I had to hang my antenna out my front window during bad weather. I would bring it in after the Saturday evening game, then take it apart and dry it out. Worked great all along and i recently gave it to a co-worker to try out on a new HDTV.

I would think with EL adding more HD channels, that WSYM would be one of the first to go live. Its one of the Big 4 and carries the NFL, what more could you ask for?

Spent more than a few hours at the swin up bar, my wife is pictured center

My TV's QAM tuner just started picking up FOX in HD on channel 12-5 here in Meridian. Interestingly, I'm not getting it through my cable box, even after power cycling.
