Moral of the story, don't watch WMC. I'm surprised your tv doesn't have motion blocking burn in either.

That's funny

The said thing is as we now watch the other locals, they have the same issues.
Big solid bugs, just different placement.

I guess I shouldn't be surprised that the local station engineers haven't joined the conversation

I wouldn't be surprised. The answer is to not watch a station that could possibly leave burn in on your tv, and I doubt you would see someone say that about their station.

This an a few other problems have prompted me to examine other Internet Options. COMCAST Business has a 16/2 service available. Does anyone have any experience they can share ?

I am in Bartlett, and understand that if you have good Comcast it's pretty good, but if you have old cable, the results are really bad....

I watched about 10 minutes of The Saint problem free. Our Wii is wireless.

Good - I watched some last night with very minor trouble, only a pause at the front end, then flawless streaming. With some of the other problems creeping up with the DSL, it is looking more like a change in in the very near future.

Thanks for the feedback!

If you look at the Fox 13 bug, you'll find that the one that runs during programming at the lower right is transparent, to minimize burn-in.

The full-color one that is used on the lower left during newscasts is constantly moving, spinning at the top and bottom, and with the "searchlights" moving in the middle. Same reason.

Dave,

Thanks for caring and attempting to minimize the issue. Now can you impact your fellow engineers?!?

I guess I'll have to give 13 a longer trial. When I was channel flipping, the bug looked as intense as the other channels so I moved past. I did notice the rotation, but it appeared the center of the bug was fixed and would cause the same problems. I'll take another look.

Everyone knows there is some bad weather outside of your viewing area. Thanks for running smallville in sd with mono audio. Could you maybe only do it during commercial breaks?

I'm at my parents last night and they turned on the news since we were out of town this weekend and we were looking at some of the water damage. They had it on WMC for the 10 pm news and I saw something that was cheap on their part. WMC threw up a snipe about another story later in the newscast.

Low.

Where the hell is the Jimmy Kimmel: Aloha To Lost? It was supposed to air right after the local news and now it's just freakin' Two And A Half Men reruns! It was in the DirecTV guide last week and I even scheduled it to record. I also checked the local cable feed to see if it was a DirecTV screw-up and it isn't playing there either. So disappointed.
post #5743 of 6016
For some reason they moved it to next Saturday. Ch. 24 cant be bothered to show Jimmy Kimmel Live, live why would they show the special live.

They are in stone age compared to the other stations around here.

Has anyone looked into DirecTV mult-room service? I used the beta (that was discontinued last week) and it seemed to work just fine. I just called trying to get the $3.00 service - and they are trying to tell me I don't have the necessary equipment. I must purchase a $99 connection kit and commit to another 24 months service if I want the multi-room service.

Anyone have a similar experience? I know that I have the needed connectivity already.
post #5746 of 6016
If you were using Beta MRV and want to continue using ethernet then you can activate MRV and it will be unsupported by D* because you will be using your own network instead of DECA. It will only cost $3 per month. The process for enabling MRV using your own hardware can be found here:

Thanks so much - followed instructions in 2nd post and it worked like a champ

As a plus - got 3 months of Showtime free

Glad to help.

Surpr*briiiiiiiipppppp"ise! The dreaded briiippp is back on the Fox feed. Sat down to watch the 24 Series Finale tonight and gave up after 10min of bad audio. The last time I posted about this issue it was 12/19/09. And when I posted then, I was complaining that it three months before that. Why in the F can't Fox figure this problem out! How in the hell is this acceptable? I haven't even tried the season finale of Fringe yet.... lets see if they got that one right.
post #5750 of 6016
Actually the brrriipppp was in the last 20 min or so of the Fringe finale too.

Well it's a good thing I have my Mac Mini hooked up to my HDTV. I'll watch it online. Thanks for letting me know!
post #5753 of 6016
Just an fyi...I've watched 24, Fringe, and Bones from the past few weeks the last couple of days and I haven't noticed any audio dropouts. I'm using OTA so if there are any dropouts from the D* feed during those programs it has been on the D* side.

Has anybody here tried AT&T's Uverse service? I read some stuff a few months ago that suggested the quality wasn't very good (compression on HD channels, reliability issues). They're offering it in our area now and it would be a decent cost savings over Comcast and regular phone service, but I don't know that I want to mess with it.
post #5755 of 6016
A friend of mine at work got the AT&T service when it was first available in the Raleigh area. He said it took about four hours for three techs to install it. He has had one outage and when one thing is out, everything is out. He did get credit from AT&T for the entire month. He seems happy, but they don't have as much HD as of now. It's not available in Bartlett yet, but when it is I plan to compare it to DirecTV.

I got my introductory marketing junk in the mail last week, I am in Bartlett. I've been watching them slowly bring fiber up Altruria Road from Stage over the past several months. I just can't get excited about Uverse, I know they are wanting to push copper to the limits, but I'd much rather see fiber-to-the-house.
post #5757 of 6016
I figured that's what they were doing. I live off of Deermont. If it was FTTH, I would be out there helping them dig!

WMC is running (and presumably producing some of them) local ads in HD! Bill Haslam's political ads, LeBonheur ads, one of those trial lawyers (Daryl Castle?), and some others. I just noticed this the other day, so have no idea how long it's been going on. Still cool, though.
post #5759 of 6016
I've also seen at least one on WHBQ. It was for Mednikow jewelry or something like that.
post #5760 of 6016
Looks like WREG news is now in HD. Haven't seen the other graphics but for a start I already don't like the row of WREG's that are below the story caption that highlight from beginning to end. Why?
