For that matter when is 17.1 going to transmit HD? I talked to the engineer last week and he said by the end of the week it would be on, I could be wrong but I don't think it is yet.
To be honest, they have problems there and they can't solve them. I suspect and the engineer told me as much, until 17.1 is up and running right then the others are on the back burner. 17.1 is not running right all the time and they're still working on it so I don't think you'll see the others progressing for a time. 2 weeks ago I think it was they decided to do work on the DTV side during the Lost program and totally screwed things up. They flipped a switch and stretched things out on everything and didn't even notice it until I called them the next morning and asked them about it, then they admitted to the gaff. That's when they explained they were trying to get up on HD on 17.1 and having problems doing so and expected it to happen within a couple weeks.
I can't wait for all of our local stations to get things debugged because when they have it working it's very nice, but often you'll find they just aren't quite there yet. For example changing audio levels, audio drops, picture quirks of all sorts, strange things. It's good it doesn't happen all the time, but it happens and they all admit to having problems. I think PBS is doing pretty good however, but then all I see there is Clifford.
