Thanks, that's good news, long over due. It's about time FOX gave us regular season baseball in HD.

Speaking of FOX, off topic question, did anyone catch the NASCAR coverage this past weekend? I caught a few minutes here and there and man-oh-man-- the HD was glorious. They had HD cameras everywhere. It was like a video game.

Also, if you haven't watched it yet, the Planet Earth documentary on Discovery HD is awesome.

The delay was probably because the Fox tv deal with MLB was expriing at the end of last season, and FOX dind't want to make the investment in weekly HD if baseball was going to stay with them.

I don't enter channels on the TWC STB.
I enter Frequency #'s and program #'s when I put the STB in Diagnostic mode.

I believe S.I. has a enormous amount of bandwidth.

we all have both Basic & Standard cable in analog which adds up to 80 analog channels.

S.I. recently eliminated their Standard analog channels leaving just Basic cable and that adds up to roughly 40 analog channels.

I think they have enough space to add 120 Hd channels and arrange their frequencies any way they want.

anyway..is any1 able to get wwor hd today?
post #10331 of 26427
it's up on 709, but my box reads it as 720p.

I thought wwor-hd was 1080i.
might be another sd feed that my STB upconverted.
post #10332 of 26427
ok did a quick scan on my samsung 260 hd tuner box..for std, hrc, iirc...and still can't get wworhd...wtf?

Did anyone in Staten Island get MHD?? I noticed that TWCNYC changed their website's new channel announcement for SI to getting only wwor HD like everyone else. I also noticed that TWC no longer wants to make it easy for us to access channel listings to other areas without having the zip code. It use to be you just clicked on whatever county or borough you wanted to compare yours with and it would come up and now it requires you to know the zip code.

It was working for me in diagnostic mode last night, I won't be able to check it today until I get home from work.

I noticed MHD this morning, along with WWORHD when i went looking for Action Sports. I got into such a rut watching the same old channels, i never realized there were other HD channels past 725, or at least I didn't know they were being added.

A&E is new to me also... its nice to see additions ever since INHD2 was taken away.

I am in SI btw..

Congrats to all in SI.... Hopefully, we too will get to see those two new HD channels added to our system soon although there's probably a few other channels that many others would prefer to see before them, like NGC HD, TMC HD & ESPN2 HD but then again "beggars can't be choosy".
post #10338 of 26427
I've been getting nothing but 480i out of WWOR HD. MHD Looked great with the 2006 VMA's this morning. AE Works well too, CSI Was in HD, 720P. Haven't checked out FSNY Too much yet though.
post #10339 of 26427
Didn't I read here that 2 analog channels in NYC were recently shut down? Doesn't that mean bandwidth for 4+ HD channels?

Just checked, looked at my first series recording for UnHD... HA! It had been set for UnHD 709 and now I see it says "UnHD 740." Thank goodness it seems to work. STILL, I'd advise everyone to check their future recordings...

BTW, we might have gotten some channel called WWOR HD, and it did take the UnHD channel number over relegating a very good HD channel to the ghetto (in among a bunch of totally worthless SD channels), but we got another 480 station. It's only putting out 720 x 480 according to my TV. AND I swear it looks like bad SD, I've got tons of other SD channels that seem to have much better quality pictures.

So in NO WAY have we gotten another HD channel, all we got was a SD channel duplicated on a real HD channel's former channel number. It's all a deception. I wish I could go to Lincoln and testify about how TWC treats it's customers in other areas...

I noticed the same issue this morning -- an SD only signal on WWOR-HD (709). Does that channel even have HD programming? And can we test it during programming that's actually supposed to be HD?

I'm looking in today's NY Times television listings right now and they indicate whether or not a show is in HD and there is nothing listed tonight in prime time on WWOR as being in HD.

Ugh. What a waste of a (an alleged, anyway) HD channel slot. :-(
post #10343 of 26427
I've noticed that WWOR no longer advertises "In HD only on Optimum TV."

Now it says "The best HD in Primetime on Optimum TV" or something to that effect.

WWOR HD also has the UPN9 logo from way back (with the circle, triangle, square UPN logo.)

Agreed. UGH, what a disappointment! I'm currently "watching" (but not for long, believe me) The King of Queens. Just AWFUL, typical SD-quality crap goin' on here. Lovely. What ELSE is new?? ED for the Yankee games?? That's =my= prediction. Watch, just wait and see.

And i still don't believe even FOR A MOMENT that all Yankee road games will be on in widescreen true HD this season. I mean, doesn't that depend on what the HOME teams are showing, too?? I hope i'm WRONG about that, but i don't think i WILL be.
post #10345 of 26427
obviously the only HD content on WWOR-HD will be during the 8-10pm slot (just like most of the OTA networks most days... that haven't recently added local news in HD)

The important part of WWOR-HD will be the weekly Yankee game.

Unfortunately.... it seems TWCNYC (At least in manhattan) is only sending the regular channel 9 480p SD feed. (which has already been available for a few days, as mentioned on the board earlier)


Tonight - The Negotiator is supposed ot be available in HD.... I wonder when TWC realizes its sending the wrong signal....
post #10346 of 26427
For anyone here who has a 50 inch or so RPTV, or DLP, or just any set really, what kind of quality are you getting? For me on INHD and HDNET, even HBO and Showtime a lot of times, I'm getting all kinds of artifacts on my picture. At first I thought it might be screen door or silk screen effect, and maybe it is, but it seems worse. Those effects are usually relatively minor and only on backgrounds, it's all over the screen for me. Really bad and I don't think it's my set, it's 2 months old and I just had it professionally calibrated. And I don't get this on all channes, usually it's movies.

I wonder if getting a new box might help, I'm going to do that anyway tomorrow at 23rd St, do they still have firewire boxes, or anything newer than the SA8300 I have now?

So UNIHD got banished to bogeyland-- the high 7 hundreds, like it did something wrong.
That's illogical. The only other HD channel in the neighborhood is the Mets HD channel SNY. Go figure. More TW smart planning.

While I do feel lucky to be getting some extra HD channels here on SI, they put A&E-HD and FSNY-HD on 746 and 748. I would love to know how they pick these numbers.

It would almost make sense if they were taking the SD channels and adding a 7 in front... FSN-NY is 48.... USA is 40 (and Universal-HD supposidly may become USA-HD eventually)

A&E is 16 though.... and MTV is 20.....

They should move things around and match the HD channels with the SD ones....

My guess is that they might already have the channels inbetween slotted for channels that they're expecting to put in place?
