Just wanted to touch base with y'all, and give you an update. I guess y'all figured out that we worked it out with Dish. We sent the Dolby cards back to the manufacturer and they did software upgrades and we changed the setup. We are currently testing one of them on air on the Fox side. We are testing for lip synch error, and are not currently broadcasting in 5.1. No, it's just stereo for now. We had a problem with one of our DA cards, (on Fox) and it was causing video clipping. We noticed it while monitoring for LS error. It is now corrected, and we are testing again. So far it has been on for two days, with no complaint. I welcome any comments and problem reports. We are not doing anything on the ABC side, but if the Fox side makes it to 5.1 successfully, the ABC side will soon follow. We also have a new live truck and once again, we have begun to do live reports from the field during newscasts. The truck is HD ready, and when production control is upgraded to HD, the truck will be in HD. But right now, I have my hands full making sure these football games get on the air. Some of them are on satellites we have never used before. It's been a busy time, and it will get busier. That's all for now.
