New graphics on WUSA 9 News -- the exciting thing is that they're not 4:3 safe. It's strange; I think this is the first channel I've seen to really break out of that box. They don't seem to be...

I'm noticing what looks, just visually, like an insanely reduced bitrate on WPXW-DT 2 and 3, via Fios (491 and 492). It looks like it's the same way on broadcast 66-2 and 66-3, although it's a...

I've decided that we already have the Atrocity Channel, as long as web sites with videos count. A site I got inflicted with today, in particular. (No, I won't say its name.)

I think it might be relevant who your provider is. I see no reason to think it's a problem on your end.

And it sounds more like "Copy Once" than "Copy Never". (Recording it to the computer's hard...

AFAIK, MASN2 is a part-time channel; Verizon airs it on Fios 1 (501 HD), which until recently it shared with CSN+, as well as original programming.

Smaller, better-looking... maybe, but I consider this form factor a negative. My Blu-Ray player stacks neatly on my TiVo, and I could reverse that stack order if I had to. But if I had this, it...

I'm excited to see that 4-2 is now airing in 16:9, widescreen SD. First time I've seen that since Fox went HD. They haven't got it completely worked out yet -- I saw Cash Cab in postage stamp format.

Verizon Fios* does not use the CCI flag at all (that is to say, all channels are set to Copy Freely), except, oddly, for their barker channels. Occasionally a new channel will show up flagged, which...

CSI Miami's colors aren't true to reality, but it looks great. I used to regard it as kind of a reference source for broadcast HD. The only problem is the show is so dumb.
