    Liar. ;) CIHD is now live (might require refreshing of your HD receiver, and/or subscription to HD Extra package).

    Same results with WHIO. Does anyone know if the secondary digital stations are going to be offered via satellite (like 7.2, etc).

    Tim Larson is the guy I contacted and referenced in e-mail response above. Essentially, he said, "It's not our fault." I'd suggest calling and politely asking them to get on board. I plan to.

    All the other channels are up and running this morning. So far "Today" is the only one in HD but it looks great.

    It looks like DISH also fired up COS HD locals recently. Their website guide for today shows "NEW" in red letters for all COS locals. They also indicate they are carrying both ABC 13, and CW 57 in the COS market. Come on DTV lets keep up with the competition!!!

    For me DTN, KEF, and RGT are up and fine. I'm getting intermitant audio but no video on HIO on my H23-600.

    I pity the people that have not seen this announcement thread. When they got up this morning and turned on their set and then went to the channel guide, the local channels were not listed (unless they had previously selected "Show SD Duplicates" for the channel guide - i suspect that most have it set to "Hide") what they saw is the local channels were not listed. Oh, and since the HD feeds are new and they weren't in their favorites list, so they weren't there either. :eek2:

    I had to scurry around and fix things by adjusting the Favorites list and changing "Hide SD Duplicates" to "Show SD Duplicates" in the guide so my wife was able to have things work for her (she hates the Blue side-panels KOAA uses for SD shows on the HD channel). She's already pretty $%^& at D* over the Mid-day downloads and lockups. This would not have helped.

    D*'s customer attention is suffering from ADD.:nono2:

    The Dayton locals, with the exception of WHIO, look terrific. I get excellent reception ota from both Dayton & Cincy & I honestly cannot see any difference. I'm impressed. I'm certain the WHIO problem will be taken care of soon. It's nice to be able to point the antenna southeast for Cincy & get the Dayton locals from D.

    Looks like the WHIO sound problem may have been taken care of. The sound is now synced with the picture.

    Is there a way to easily/automatically convert all my DVR recordings from the OTA channels to their corresponding HD channels now??

    Now that WHIO in Dayton is fixed all 4 HD channels look amazing.


    Thank You DirecTV

    In Colorado Springs CBS is still not broadcasting Jeopardy in HD and ABC is offering nothing in HD (other than OTA).
    I'm still better off with my antenna and AM21's.

    For me this was a gigantic non-event.
