Thanks.. however I meant FM. I can't find FM on the rabbitears site to look at coverage maps (or anything) except for when Trip directly links to it. Sorry I wasn't clear.

Thanks for the info. So it is possible, just expensive. I fully understand why you, and few (if any), wouldn't.

As a broadcaster, do you have the ability to broadcast it "zoomed" to maintain a 16:9 image? If so, do they allow it? It would probably make it worse than it already does though...

What did they change to? When I lived in NC, QVC on WGPX was always "smushed" - a 16:9 picture squeezed into a 4:3 broadcast frame. Did they finally start sending it 16:9?

It appeared that way on the Directv AM21 tuner when I lived there. WGHPSTA would disappear after a few days and only WGHPDT would appear. Both worked when they both appeared.

Horrible. Little piece of electrical tape will fix the camera - but I hadn't seen the part about mics before.

I think the X1 will output 1080p, but it really doesn't matter. Most, if not all, cable and broadcast networks are 720p and 1080i.

You can see it after shows - NBC/CBS/Fox/Paramount/Fremantle logo, etc. It caused me to investigate this further the first time I saw it years ago.

Nope.

The signal is at an angle so the rain doesn't need to be directly above you. Clouds shouldn't knock it out, ever.

Nice try! You're lucky to get ANY HD without a box. You will either need to deal with the 480 or get a box. It sucks, I know, and those fees add up fast!

"s
WVNY is a VHF RF signal (ch 13) so an indoor antenna would not do well with it. Perhaps a new antenna is in order.
