The second thing was just to mention that I saw some digital breakup during the brief period that I tuned in -- but I'm not sure when I implied that this might have something to do with any particular transmission format. What I *was* suggesting is that it's possible the breakup was INCOMING to KMAX -- that is, if they took this off a digital satellite feed, this kind of problem is not uncommon.
Bob Hess is the chief engineer at KMAX, and he checks this forum every so often. He can confirm whether the telecast was in HD.
As far as digital breakup is concerned, there are a number of possibilities:
incoming to KMAX, problems with their digital STL feed or propagation anomalies between their transmitter and you. I watch lots of CBS HD on D*, and there are usually one or two breakups of their digital feed per program. No telling where it comes from. S**t happens!
