Definitely a bad luck streak for them here lately. Within the past month (or maybe two) storms have knocked them off the air twice before tonight too.

mdavej, if you still have the same setup could you post an updated version of the Greenville Charter channel map from your hdhomerun box? My TiVo doesn't give any way to see the map.

I can easily see some room for consolidation in both Charlotte & the GSP market as a result. I think the big losers in this auction will be the subchannels. There simply won't be any space for them...

Just curious if anyone has any updated information on the HD Availability at Disney World's resorts in Florida? Based on what I've read online it appears that HD is limited to local channels only?

I noticed last night while flipping channels that the 62.2 feed of WSPA is now in 16:9 widescreen (still SD of course). When did that happen?
