Quote from: John L;47982I wonder if TWC finally changed the way it broadcasts channel 18/24 and 30? They used to always received them OTA while all other stations were received directly from studio via Fiber Optic.I'd laugh if I watch those channels on TWC and it tells I am "not DTV ready".I would certainly hope TWC made those changes.-John L.
Quote from: Jimboy;47984You need to re-read the article.
Quote from: Jimboy;47990In the article there are two different paragraphs relating to the type of information being presented on the air. One mentions a test of static and the other mentions that information will be provided.This is being done to prevent any confusion to cable viewers and subsequent laughing. :rof:
Quote from: John L;47991Well if Time-Warner is getting channels 18, 24, 30, etc over the air from their analog, eventually they will have to make some changes to their system before Feb. 17th.
Quote from: John L;47992Certainly if I have my analog TV with the Rabbit ears set up and next to it is my other TV with either cable or the DTV converter box, during the time of these announcements I would expect to see 2 differect pictures from one station. The analog with rabbit ears to do the static with info telling me I need to convert, while the TV hooked up to cable or the DTV box will tell me I am "DTV Ready".
Quote from: WITI6fan;48214Looks like this test failed. By the sounds of it some Satellite customers are reporting some stations had the "pass" programming when others had "fail". WTMJ had a remote at someone's home with a Dish TV and a OTA TV, and both failed :eek: .
Quote from: RonH;48223Does anyone know what DirecTV or Dish plan to do with 16:9 broadcasts for the locals after feb 19th? For now, I suspect the prefer to use the analog feeds, because they don't have to crop or stretch it out. After the transition, they will have to put black bars on the top and bottom or crop it down to 4:3.I suppose same question goes for TWC and AT&T. Although I think I heard AT&T has always gone with the digital feed, and just crops the sides off that feed.
Quote from: Jimboy;48222DirectTV & Dish both use the same receive site in Milwaukee and they have the capability of switching between receiving analog or the digital signals for their SD tier (until Feb 17th 2009). For some reason they were receiving the analog version of WTMJ when the test took place. The same issue happened on DirectTV as well. Irregardless....if you get your locals via DirectTV or Dish you're good to go.
