    Is the LLWS in HD on the D* HD feed of your local ABC station?

    It is in HD on my DirecTV MPEG4 HD feed here in Baltimore (ABC WMAR).

    Thanks. Not sure what is going on at my affiliate. Last night Boston Legal also not in HD, but the local news was in HD. The just started local HD news on Thursday. The SD picture is better than the SD picture on the HD feed. Looks like KMBC KC is having retransmission problems.

    lwilli201, I also noticed that KMBC didn't have the Little League World Series on in HD the other day. Last night's news broadcast in HD was much better than the night before. Those cloud and lightning shots from the severe weather at the beginning of the news were awesome. They passed right over our house.

    I've also noticed that there are sounds issues and other issues with pictures breaking up here. I do'nt know if that's an ABC thing or the fact that they're switching over.

    How are you recieving KMBC, through D* or OTA. I am watching the LLWS Final on D*. Still SD on the HD feed. There are also breakups on the SD feed. I am trying to determine if this is a D* problem or a Channel 9 problem. The 9 news just came on in HD so this is not a D* problem.

    Received this Email from KMBC Channel 9 Kansas city regarding the lack of national HD programming.

    Thank you for writing. We just moved to a new facility and had to
    transport some of the equipment from our previous location to the new
    location. During the transition, HD was/is not available; however, we're
    hoping to having it back early this week.

    I've received KMBC through both, D* and OTA. It should be back soon.
