The worst thing is when you invite a friend over to watch in HD who's an avid fan of one the teams playing on Monday night... and no HD... That's a real bummer.
Previously in the early days of WKYT-DT they forgot to "flip the switch" I found out that a call into their newsroom desk with a request to check their HD switch would usually get an HD signal in a few minutes (have done this many times). However, I've never had an issue with WTVQ-DT yet... until last night as well... But I was more interested in baseball than football so I didn't grab the phone book and look up the WTVQ-DT news room number...
The nicer I was, the faster the switch got flipped... and be prepared for the newsroom people to be clueless, just don't get too technical with them when the fog sets in... just tell them to pass the info on to an engineer to check the "HD" switch.
WKYT-DT news tip hotline is 299-2727
WTVQ-DT 294-3636 (or 1-800-475-36TV)
(I've not tried the WTVQ numbers yet)
HDC - is WDKY-DT FOX doing baseball in their widescreen mode? If so, how does it look?
