    not really a tech issue but I'm sure you've all noticed the overly bright and annoying KATV logo on SD programs on their "HD" channel
    honestly is KATV trying to drive away all of their viewers (all 12 of them) ? :rolleyes:

    I gave up on KATV a long time ago. Its bittorrent for Lost and .... oh wait there isn't anything else on ABC worth watching.

    It would appear that way.

    You don't need a stupid LOGO to tell it's KATV. The blurry, washed out 4:3 video gives it away.

    Those banners are enough to make me not want to watch their programming. I am sure that the others will now follow suit, because all of the LR broadcasters seem bent on lowering the bar as much as possible.

    And as a status report from earlier, still no response from KARK on the skipping issue at x:56. You would think that a simple acknowledgment would be in order.

    If they don't respond soon, I am going to send them the same thing and seem worried that I might miss out on a thunderstorm watch if this continues.

    Sat SD channel 49 - "No need to call us" screen for weeks. Actual channel is analog 20, and guide data is correct. Can someone tune the receiver?

    OTA digital 18 (4 subchannels) KTWN Searcy, Ar missing from database. Please add even though they dont send guide data to zap2it. Local weather radar, PBS, and other subchannels need to be able to be tuned on AM21.

    OTA digital 26 (26.1) KTVH Hot Springs, Ar. missing from database. Same guide data as KTVN channel 25.1 Little Rock.

    OTA KARZ digital channel 44.2 (virtual 42.2) no longer exists. KARZ has only 44.1 (42.1). Has guide data for analog channel 20 KKYK.

    John, I opened a thread on the HDDVR forum about this same issue. I noticed the problem on Fox & whatever station broadcasts CSI. When it happens, my picture pixelates the same as it does during rain fade, & the audio sometimes also drops out. I thought I had also seen the problem on Discovery channel but I must be mistaken. Doug has said that he's asked D* to look into the locals in our area for any problems & hopefully they will find something.

    If that's the channel CSI is on, then I have the same issue. Last night we watched last week's episode & twice during the show the audio dropped for about a minute.

    Anyone know why the Cardinals opening day game was blacked out on ESPN and EI yesterday. If it were available on a local channel I would understand. Does MLB consider Little Rock to be in the Cardinals local broadcast area, even though our RSN is FSSW.
    Does this mean all Cardinal games are blacked out here?

    To find the answer to that question, you need to go here: I live in Miami OK and they claim us. To get the Cardinals or the Royals games i have to sub to the Sports pack to watch their games. They are not included in EI. The Cardinals game was not on ESPN yesterday it would not have been blacked out. It stinks that there are extra sports stations that fall in the sports pack only but at least we didnt get an upcharge for having multiple RSN's in the base package.
