Since Feb. 22, according to the N&O.

There was an announcement about an agreement between Bounce and Univision back in December.

Can anyone who receives both WRAL and WNCT compare their digital 5.1 sound and see if they sound identical. Some of us on WNCT are not getting the surrounds when we think we should be.

I've recently been thinking about finally cutting the cord on TWC. I've heard about the TV Fool site so I thought I would check it out to see what stations I can receive with an antenna and the results I got are pretty disappointing. I live in Durham, right inside of RTP and according to TV fool the only stations in the green are PBS, Univision and W24CP(have no idea what channel that is). My question is are these results pretty accurate? Is there anything I can do to receive better stations or is there an antenna people recommend? Or am I screwed because of my location?

according to Rabbit Ears W24CP is 3ABN (3 angels network) based in Durham

Anything in Green and yellow should be easily receivable - but you may need more antenna that you were counting on, and it really should be placed outside above the roof. Most of our local stations are just east of Garner (you can see them easily driving down I-40 down to Smithfield / Benson)

It appears that Time Warner has switched several HD channels from Switched Video to Linear feeds. What this means in access to these channels with a one way Cable Card or Digital Tuning Adapter.

Which channels are you referring to?
post #15072 of 15283
DISNEY, NICK, ABCFAM, CARTOON, TBS, USA, TNT, FX, BRAVO, LIFETIME, DISCOVERY, ESPN, ESPN2, AMC, TCM, NEWS 14, FOXNEWS (HBO, SHO) are all coming through in HD on my Digital Tuner adapter on ALL channels they are on. Example, USA is in HD on channel 25, 300 & 1300. The locals however are only in HD in the 1000's.

What do you guys think of Centurylink Prism HD? I think it looks incredible. The system certainly blows away cable IMO. Anyone have it?

They are running GPON FTTH with Microsoft Middleware which is very nice. I seen Northstate's set up with this middleware and it very expensive and blows aware Minerva which I using in my system with Calix.

I honestly thought Prism was a VDSL solution like U-Verse. Learn something new every day.

I guess the Prism name lends to fiber though, duh

Don't see anything here
post #15078 of 15283
Is TWC offerring any DVRs better than the SA8300HD yet? My SA8300HD is acting flaky and I want to swap it for a working DVR. Should I ask for another SA8300HD, or is there a better model out now?

By "flaky", I mean it forgets what it has recorded, everyday, until I re-boot it. Then it remembers for a few hours. Very wierd.

Thanks.

They've done the same thing in my area. The HD quality to me isn't very good during fast motion and does not hold a candle to OTA reception, or to Centurylinks HD

Is that the RF? If so, there is nothing here in Burlington, but I will check at night.
post #15081 of 15283
Yes, RF56.

Quick question...

I have a friend moving to Stem, NC. Near Butner. He is looking at getting only the HD locals. I was thinking of telling him to get the Terk HDTVa Antenna.

Do you all think this antenna will be powerful enough at that location to pull in the big 4?

Thanks
post #15083 of 15283
From Butner ?

That's not enough antenna for either Raleigh OR Greensboro stations.. Most of the Raleigh stations are just east of Garner.. he can probably get WUNC 4 from Chapel Hill ok with that... but probably not too much else..

Anyone that can get WITN 7 from Greenville NC, they launched there new HD studios today.

North Carolina's first television station built from the ground up for HD began broadcasting local newscasts today.

Dave Jordan and Lynnette Taylor anchored WITN's News at Noon from our new broadcast facility on Arlington Boulevard in Greenville.

Plans for the new building began several years ago after a commitment from WITN's owner, Gray Television, Inc., to move the station's studios to Greenville. Construction on the state-of-the-art facility began last summer, while WITN's master control began using it the first of the year to broadcast the three WITN digital channels.

For the past month, anchors and newscast directors have been splitting their time between the existing Washington studios and the new facility for training. Everything in the building is new, which means news and production employees had to learn several new systems before the HD facility could start broadcasting locally originated programming.

WITN continues to have local offices in Washington, New Bern and Jacksonville.

For behind-the-scene photos and video tours of the new HD studio, visit WITN on Facebook.

WITN looks really good. They should be proud of what they have accomplished. I guess WNCT is in a race to be the last in the state to go HD news.

Along with WCNC in Charlotte. But I keep hoping they are about to get there.

When you easterners mention WNCT (your CBS affiliate), it confuses me.

You see, 'round these parts we have a station called WNCN, and it's an NBC affiliate.

It used to call itself NBC-17, but lately it has been prominently featuring the WNCN call letters.

post #15088 of 15283
WNCT and WNCN are both owned by Media General which is based in Richmond.

WCNC is at least 16:9 SD. WNCT is still 4:3 with a poor quality picture at that.

I honestly can't think of anyone else doing 4:3 news in this state. That LP up in Boone does, if you want to count them. No full power that I know of does.
