If your receiver gets QAM, then theoretically, you will be able to get the HD signals on Comcast. I know WAPT is on 83 when tuned this way but I have not always been able to get the other stations in this manner. Good luck.
Tell me about it but the decision was made by senior management. Some people will never get on with getting the right equipment until it goes away! Congress should have used their time to fix the country's problems and not on extending our deadline. Don't get me started on that soapbox.
clarkbr, I surely hope WAPT does not make a habit of running SD for ABC shows. Wheel and Jeopardy are local syndicated shows and not ABC and we are very lucky to be able to run those shows in HD at the moment. have experienced lots of technical issues lately with them. Still record them on Tape, no less. Hopefully in the next month, will have them on a video server (computer) and get a spare HD receiver from another source. I will re-enforce to my evening ops about HD....
I know. They got to start from scratch which makes it a little easier to go HD locally and it can be done cheaper but when we do it, we will do it with the best quality equipment which is still pricy. Believe me, I am still jealous. At least we do some syndicated shows in HD & hopefully more to come.
I received a complaint that Despirate Housewives was not switched to HD last night. Can anyone confirm? The person complaining says it happens "all the time". First I have heard that! Better not be happening all the time. Let me know.
