I have already sent KCTS an email once encouraging them to do just that. I never did receive a reply.
Does anyone on here have any information for KCTS like the program director's number or email address?
Perhaps we can start a letter writing campaign to sway KCTS to be more of a pioneer than a looper.
And while I'm on my soap box. When is KING 5 going to get off of this "The future of television" loop. Don't they realize they are quickly becoming the faded past of television? Don't get me wrong, I do love the material they show, specially their Evening Magazine goes to Ireland piece. But enough is enough.

I spoke with Dave at KING today. After conversing with him, I now conclude that the problem is Sony's. KING was doing some testing over the last couple of weeks and were on 48.1
Now they are back to 5.3 He convinced me that they carefully check their transmission two different ways. He is convinced that they are to spec. He did find my theory about tne dot1 and dot2 or dot3 differences interesting and he was going to discuss it with his "guru" who was in later today. He told me that he has had no contact with Sony on this and says they are not calling him about any of these issues. He mentioned that KING is a complete station Sony user! Amazing.
I called Sony since I had not spoken to them in a couple of weeks and there is no news except there are issues with the HD-100 that are being "worked on". Unfortunately he admitted that I probably know more about the issues than he does. He did go "off line" for about 10 minutes and came back with the usual "line" about they are working on it.
Patience is a virtue I guess. I cannot get to excited about these things because I realize I am an Beta tester!
PS There is a thread about Houston which I see has similar problems. http://www.avsforum.com/ubb/Forum11/HTML/012589.html

Here in Portland, Mr Lee wood works for KOIN TV (CBS). He is one that makes the changes on the HDTV channel. I'll write him an email to write here to answer your questions.
