I also noticed that I was recieving a signal, but no picture. Then at about 7pm, I have been getting nothing, signal strength of 0. I sure hope they get this back up b/c I like to have digital stations over fuzzy analog. And HDTV_Moron, some people actually do care about digital TV because without that, no HDTV will ever come. WGN will carry those WB shows in HD in the fall.
what concerns me is that I was recieving a signal, but it was only a black screen. That just seems too weird...I can understand the dead signal right now, but sending a blank signal when programming is occuring on analog is puzzling. I don't think they simply turned off the antenna b/c of the fact they were broadcasting, but there was nothing to see in the broadcast.
I think the FCC regulations are simply for stations to broadcast a digital signal. I dont think there are any specific timing mandates. It is assumed that eventually stations will switch over to total digital broadcasting and it will be 24/7, the date being set at 2006. I don't have a copy of the FCC mandate so this isn't certain.
