Hey all, sorry for being gone so long. However, I am swamped with doing a server install. Nontheless, I read the complaints about the NFL game on WLTX and our switching on HD. Let me address those issues.
1. Switching HD....... Our switching is now controlled by our automation and should switch every time provided our people who put our log together indicates the show in HD properly. It will not be perfect however.
2. HD NFL on CBS.....CBS produces 1 HD NFL game every Sunday. If that is the game we are scheduled to carry on our analog channel, then we can show the HD version. If the HD production is of another game, the NFL will NOT allow us to broadcast it. Since the NFL controls the broadcast of all NFL games we cannot simply punch it up on air. With regard to the website showing the HD game as the one we are to carry, CBS will switch which game we are going to air depending on different factors all of which I am not sure of. This causes the TV guide to be incorrect at times. Just remember, If the game we have on our analog channel is produced in HD we will carry it. If not, then we will carry an upconverted signal of the analog game on the HD channel.
I hope this makes sense to everyone.
