For some reason TiVo continues to use data from 2009/10 along with current data. Whichever one that works, use it. If the WGHPDT and WGHPDT2 works, have that as your primary. The data labeled WGHPSTA...

The splicer does its own stat muxing so we are not using the stat mux in the encoder to keep the two from fighting each other and accidentally shutting down a stream! That is static and there is...

You will play hell on getting the local stations to give up the time. They are probably making more money with syndication at 6:30 than giving up the time to a network. This is one of the main...
