I noticed recently that 17.5 and 17.6 are broadcasting black screens. Not sure how long that's been going on.

I've seen a bunch of black and white content (i.e. not color bars), not that I've watched any of it.

I noticed recently that after many years, KLRU's 18.2 Create and 18.3 Q are now full width and height widescreen (480i), rather than being double-letterboxed. Not a huge deal, but nice I thought.

Channel 62 (13 physical) is in a different direction from most of the Austin towers. Unless you're very close to it, you'll probably need to re-angle your antenna to catch both, or use a...

I requested guide data be added via my Schedules Direct account shortly after they went live, and obviously that hasn't happened yet. They're usually pretty good about adding it quickly (KBVO-CD),...

A yearly reminder for football fans: If you can get it, Fox 44 (KWKT) will sometimes have a 3rd choice of games, or a game when there is none on Fox 7, such as GB-CHI at noon today.

That link shows MST3K tonight being from 8-10 eastern, and my SD-powered DVR shows it as 7-9 central. I'll set up a recording for their 9 PM movie to verify, but it seems right to me.
