    This channel is broadcast in HD OTA and on Cable ONe in HD. I am wondering why Directv haasn't picked it up yet.

    There are still lots of channels that broadcast in HD that aren't carried by DirecTV in HD. Satellite capacity isn't sufficient to carry them all. Be sure to contact DirecTV directly to let them know of your interest in these channels.

    Apparently D* is limiting our market to 4 HD LiLs. Before KNIN got Fox, D* showed KNIN in SD and KTRV in HD despite the fact the KNIN was broadcasting a HD signal at the time.. That changed when the affiliate change happened. BTW, on what channel are people getting the CW in HD OTA? I really wish D* would add this and I cannot seem to tune this channel in on my MythTV computer, although I saw it at a friend's house once so I know it exists. Or does anyone know a secondary market to use to get this channel via D* on a HR20?

    The HD feed of the CW in Boise is on a low powered station KYUU-LD 28.1, it's simulcasted in SD on KBOI's 2.2 subchannel.
