If you showed some sub-channels appear, they may be upgrading....sounds promising.
KATU has had periodic equipment problems that have necessitated ATSC transmission shutdown for extended periods. No offense but what good do you see coming from having sub channels? Multicasting, reduced bandwidth and PQ? Although since KATU is 720p I would imagine it would probably be less of an issue than on the 1080i stations. Even so, sub channels are evil
. Hey, maybe if we're lucky they'll put up a traffic cam. Which leads me to.....
.... Anybody check out the Florida/Maryland BB game on KOIN Sat afternoon? It looked great.... when they were standing still
. Lee I hate to be a continual griper but I noticed the traffic cam was up during the game. I figure you guys have your reasons for even having it at all but could you at least have them shut it down during sports presentations? I believe you have done that in the past if I'm not mistaken. That little extra slice of bandwidth makes a considerable
improvement in the HD feed. I was even getting some macro blocking during the game which I don't recall ever seeing from KOIN previously. Anything you could do would be appreciated. Thanks.
I tried to watch some of the R&B retrospective/tribute thing on OPB this weekend too and the lip sync was so bad I just couldn't stay with it. All in I'd have to say some what less than a stellar weekend for PDX DTV I guess.
