I seldom receive Omaha television as I live in Sioux Falls. 14.2 is the only channel broadcasting 4:3 I receive. It's a 4:3 aspect ratio so I have vertical black bars on each side, but things look...

Perhaps they want the 4:3 look to duplicate how the programs originally aired? It gives it more of a nostalgic feel. I don't know that, it's Just a theory.

I've watched Decades and it seems to...

Thank you. I first thought it meant "low definition" but that made no sense without a noun. I thought all digital stations were of the same ilk, allowing one high definition channel. But does a...

Also, with Gray buying an LD in Sioux Falls, do you think they'll go after KTTW's non-license assets and put them on the LD with a simulcast on KSFY/KABY/KPRY-DT2 in HD? Where would The CW go? Would...

KCPO is supposedly converting to digital. However, it has gone dark to my knowledge. I scan in neither an analog nor digital signal.

I'm confused, does "won't add anything" mean 9.2 will continue as LiveWell? I very seldom get 9.[1-2] and the schedule at kcau.com indicates 9.2 is still broadcasting NBC. Is that correct?

Yes, I noticed 14.2 yesterday. Lots and lots of westerns. I also noticed KTIV is again available on 4.[1-3]. KTIV states they're not yet at full power but I can get the channels in Sioux Falls.

I assume they are off the air. They no longer lock my scan as they're apparently no longer broadcasting my signal. They've broadcast an improperly-formatted signal for over a year.
