    Over the past couple weeks CBS has not been in HD. All the other locals are in HD and over the air is in HD. Anyone know why cbs is not in HD?

    Have you tried changing Guide to All Channels and changing guide display options to Show All Channels (Settings> Display> Preferences> Guide HD Channels> Show All Channels) to see if for some reason maybe the HD is being hid?

    Looking at your market it appears you do have separate SD and HD CBS feeds so your not in an MPEG-4 only market.

    Also if you arrow over < to the call sign in the Guide does it display A3 in front of the name and information at the top middle of the guide?

    Then its most likely an issue with your specific local CBS feed (KDLH-TV). Do you know if D* receives there signal via Fiber or OTA to the LRF?

    We also haven't had any reports of any issues so far in the HD Locals Broadcast Issues thread for your specific DMA.

    I do see one tweet to D* suggesting KDLH has been having HD problems for a week ...
    https://twitter.com/TBo45/status/427176835403628544


    Also -- KDLH-TV back on the air on its regular channels
    "KDLH had a major transmitter failure on Jan. 12, cutting off its signal for about half of the viewers in the region. The outage affected TV watchers who use an antenna to receive channels, as well as Dish Network and DirecTV subscribers."

    So it does look like D* (and Dish) receive the feed via OTA at the LRF. The article indicates Charter uses another method to receive the feed at there headend (most likely fiber).
