    I'm beginning to get upset about the quality of my locals..... The CBS channel was fine for awhile but now it has way too much color..... I was watching the Final Four and the Illini looked like they were wearing red uniforms..... The UPN channel is horrible and the WB has always been bad.... The FOX network has terrible sound and when football is on, the picture compresses so much you can't watch the game..... The NBC has very dark colors as well......

    Any ideas what I can do.... I have called directv and emailed all the local stations with no luck...... This is annoying because I hate Time Warner Cable.....

    I think were just stuck with those problems, crappy local stations and a crappy alternative to Directv. Maybe it's a conspiracy thought up by Time Warner Cable to get back all the customers it lost? lol

    When is UPN 47 ever gonna have a web site? They've had website coming soon on UPN47tv.com since January 1st, I know it doesn't take that long to make your own web site.

    If you go to the website for Roberts Broadcasting flagship station, WRBU in St. Louis, you will notice a lot of broken images. Maybe they had to fire their web designer.

    http://www.upn46stl.com/

    I am wondering what will happen when our new Roberts Broadcasting UPN station, WRBJ 34 Magee/Jackson, MS comes online in June. I hope they deliver a good signal.

    Just out of curiosity, can anyone there in Columbia verify that UPN47 is sending an MTS stereo signal? I figure that if they do it for your station, they'll add it for our new station.

    The picture quality and sound for UPN 47 in Columbia is very bad, maybe you'll get lucky and they'll have a good signal for your UPN in MS.

    I would have to agree, I wouldn't want that big ole dish on my house..... I guess I'm stuck with sorry locals or switch to sorry cable.... If I do switch to cable, I will get C-SET.... They seem to show a few Gamecock sporting events from time to time.... I don't see directv adding C-SET anytime.... If they would add the CSSE, that would be great but I don't see it happening either..... Heck, they want add the Tennis Channel, so why would they add a regional sports channel...

    That channel will probably go bust just like the channel the Minnesota Twins had Victory Sports One, about the only good RSN I think is the YES Network, because I like the Yankees and Mike and The Mad Dog is a great show, so is Yankeeography. If C-SET does stay on the air, I sure hope the Carolina Hurricanes don't start showing their games on there when the NHL comes back!!! Plus I think C-SET is a cable only network so Directv can't add them. http://www.c-set.com/faqs.asp
