Missing AFC cities:
Anyone in these cities know if FOX is 720p yet?
Don't have much news concerning Fox Cincinnati -- but here goes:
I'm pretty sure WXIX-DT Fox Cincinnati is still upconverting Fox WS/etc. to 1080i(I have no way to tell for sure with my equipment, though -- other than with my eyes) -- haven't heard anyone else from the area mention a change, though. So, don't think they've had the splicer upgrade yet -- I could be wrong though. Wouldn't think they'd go back to 1080i afterwards, but thats just a guess.
The Engineer I spoke to at WRGT-DT Dayton when the folks from Fox were there doing the splicer upgrade DID say that he had talked to WXIX's CE concerning the splicer upgrade and letting him know what they(WRGT) had needed to do to get ready for the upgrade, as he had called them at WXIX to ask what they were doing concerning a aspect ratio issue involving Fox widescreen programing, as WRGT-DT at the time had also just started passing through Fox WS for the first time.
Also, AVSforum member DrDon, who has talked to the WXIX folks recently had informed us on the Cincinnati thread (here: http://www.avsforum.com/avs-vb/showt...73#post3862973
) that WXIX has recently been working on doing some upgrades to their Master Control room.
Probably not very helpful info at this point, but there you go.
Update: I forgot to mention earlier --- It was pretty cool, when I was talking to the guy at WRGT-DT, you could tell he was genuinely excited about the goings on with the upgrade, as well as the work he had been doing on the DT station. I really enjoyed hearing that, and I'd bet Foxeng is enjoying himself presently as well :cool:
