Glad to know I wasn't alone doubting my eyes when noticing a difference last night. Picture quality remains much more improved today.
There are other factors that make me hope an overall upgrade is beginning to take effect, at least starting with the Bronx/Brooklyn feed. Improved picture quality was not noticed on Long Island. Also, volume suddenly gets louder and then back to normal on many stations. And did anyone notice this morning's program information was messed up? Not only was the title incorrect but the particular movie supposed to be airing on Starz HD was one that would never be seen on that station (i.e, a 1940's black and white Tim Holt western).
Again, something seems to be brewing. Maybe the problems encountered with the addition of the 15 VOOM HD stations caught CV off-guard and it's taken them time to root out the causes and resolve them. That's just a guess but might explain why they as so far behind schedule adding additional ones since then.
