I noticed it on TW. Not sure if it affects all their feeds or not.

the article specfically mentioned TWC and DirecTV, so I would have thought that it would affect Dish as well and I watched the game last night and It looked like a regular HD feed to me. I was looking at it closely and unless my eyes were playing tricks on me it looked fine. so maybe Dish is somehow not affected, but if it's a camera issue like the article suggests that can't be the case. oh well.

Interesting, just seems odd all together.

One thing I noticed is most of Fox's HD shows you don't get the full picture. Everything in HD (at least for me) I only get about half of the Fox logo in the corner. Like when an SD feed is "upconverted" and it's like that on my Dish and Over-the-air so not sure if it's just our local Fox here of if all Fox stations are like that.

TWC NEO pushed new software to our boxes last night. Besides fixing some glitches in operating the DVR and guide improvements, new features are now available in the search function. Check them out.

DirecTV was of no help when I inquired about this except that DTV asked if I wanted to apply for a waiver to get the distant CBS and NBC affiliates.

All i can suggest is to contact Lilly Broadcasting Co. and let them know how you feel about this.

There are still problems with Fox's baseball coverage:

Wow - can it be that we'll get all the Red Sox and Yankee games? Now I won't need the $300 Extra Innings package to watch the Sox?

I can't imagine that you will be able to watch Boston and Yankees games..since we are in the Pittsburgh/Indians Market.

Now the replay of them different story but not live..

if that was the case you are right there would be no reason for Yankees or Boston fans in this area to spend $300 on the Extra Inning package

I have no idea what other stuff they have on those 2 channels that wouldn't be blacked out...

I'm fairly sure you'll get all the NESN programming but the games will be blacked out. That's how it is on my parents DirecTV You get all those stations, their programming, pregame and post game but the actual game is blacked out.

Great, oh well.... Are you speaking of NESN in particular, or all the regional baseball networks?

all regional networks. it's the same for Basketball and hockey as well. Usually there is a note saying that black out rules apply and unless you get the channel but unless it is one of your designated regional sports networks, then the games will be blacked out.

My TWC 8300 HD DVR just died. It was the only one that worked with my 1 TB eSATA external HD. (I tried teh 8300 HD-C and the eSATA port is disabled.). Anyone know if TWC NEO has gotten any newer DVRs? I heard at one time they were getting the Samsung.

I heard that the external drives will now work with the HDC boxes, but I still use the 8300HD. I would think TW would still give you an HD box if you ask them.

I can no longer get QAM channel for WJET-TV. Used to be 104.1. Is it still available on direct cable connection with TWC?

Thank you Lilly Broadcasting and/or DTV. What a pain in the ass. After five years of dealing with rabbit ears, I finally thought I'd be able to throw them away and as a result get rid of two more wires behind the entertainment center, but no. We only get half the locals.

I watched ten straight minutes of the Auburn/Alabama game last Friday in SD OTA. I thought we were past the "forgot to push the HD" button issue 16 months ago. I guess not.

There is just no winning in this city. If it's not TWC screwing us over, it's DTV, or Lilly or take your pick.
post #3360 of 3499
and i wonder if D know would happen if we they would still add our locals? i cant Imagine too many people paying for locals without CBS OR NBC
