I just checked and 19.1 UPN is broadcasting.


I just left a message with Charles in engineering asking if Enterprise and Buffy along with their other primetime shows are also going to be broadcast, and if so, if UPN was going to broadcast those standard res shows in doubled 480p and in what screen format? I also asked about any AC-3 sound formats what might be used, if different from what is available on standard cable.


As soon as I hear back, I'll post it here.

UPN has been up for a week or so. I watched Enterprise a week ago and it was windowboxed, but still looked very good, a little bit better than the 480p on FOX in my estimation. It's a nice clean signal.

Hookum: I just got off the phone with Charles at UPN and he said that eventually UPN is gonna supply them with new broadcast and reception gear and that should coincide with UPN national starting to send some of their shows in HD. Now, he said that they are sending it out upconverted to 1080i and NOT the 480p Fox stuff. That may be why it looks better than Fox. STill, I can't believe that they are sending Enterprise, which is shot in Widescreen, in windowboxed and not 16:9 fullscreen mode???

Could someone tell me when 'Enterprise' is on?

I've never seen it.
