I don't have a stucco house, but my bowtie antenna is indoors.
Bad news- just spoke with Tim T. again at KKTV, he said that he's shooting for March 1 as a full-time rollout date. He said that their HD server is still FUBAR and that it's been sent to Denver for a second time for repairs. Basically, the server won't allow them to pause network feeds so that they can insert their local spots. Nevertheless, he expects the server back in on Monday. He said that if the server works ok, plan on them being up and running by Tuesday.
I asked him about what channel the HD version of 11 should be on, and he said that it's technically Ch. 10, but at the studio they plan on sending a signal to our tuners to make it appear as Ch. 11.1 in order to make it easy for J6P's to understand that it is still Ch. 11, just the HD version.
Btw, I was right when I thought I saw The Young and the Restless in HD yesterday, Tim said he was just playing with the signal directly off the network feed.
As far as having 4x3 material stretched to 16x9, Tim said that he always plans on doing that to keep burn-in to a minimum.
As far as the Grammy's, it looks like were SOL for the HD version. Oh well.
