Yes, NYPD Blue was in HD for about half of last season if I recall correctly. This week's show is looking pretty good - not quite as sharp as CSI on CBS. That may just be local since the Cinti ABC affiliate runs a semi static weather radar SD as as secondary service. NYPD Blue left behind the grainy effect that they employed earlier.
As Vic said, all of last years episodes were HD. And I also agree with Kipp. Last nights premiere definitely looked good. Better than I remember last years shows bein. Part of it might have been because it just seems there were alot of outdor scenes in sunlight. Regardless, it just appeared to have more punch overall.
I hate to say "Me, Too!!" but essentially I agree. Great picture. Frank hasn't weighed in with his opinion yet, though. Did anyone else get a weird period of time, thankfully during commercials when all I got was a black screen but could still hear the audio?
How would I go about getting 5.1 sound on this? I do not currently get 5.1 sound on ABC Do any of you think It would be a good idea to call up my local ABC and ask them to start 5.1 broadcasts, or is getting this a really BIG deal, and not worth my time.
The picture was very good in Chicago, although continued to have problems with Audio Sync. Even noticed some (slight) sync problems when we switched to the DirecTV feed near the end of the show (because the sync issue had become so annoying over-the-air). There was no apparent problem with the Analog over-the-air signal. Did anyone else experience the Audio Sync issue? Kal Hassan (WLS's engineer) contends it's a result of my Sony Recievers.
I contacted WEWS back in March about this issue. Here is a link to the thread that discussed their reply: http://www.avsforum.com/avs-vb/showt...threadid=40304 I was thinking about sending them another email asking for an update. If you decide to contact them, please post your results here. I'll do the same.
I think we corrected the Sony HD-100 audio sync problem months ago in Dallas. It has to do with "B" frames in the HD encoder at the station. I am not sure what WLS uses but at least two stations in Dallas had the problem and after this update the complaints went away. We use the Harris FlexiCoder.
