    Thanks for the info, it's set to record now.

    As for the music, we turn off the volume then put our own mix through our Christmas collection anyway.

    Channel 307 (SD) WGN will show Yule Log from 9 PM Xmas Eve..Don't know if on HD version

    "With new Yule Log footage (shot in HD) using the fireplace in Col. McCormick's (former Tribune president and editor and publisher of the Chicago Tribune) office at Tribune Tower in Chicago, WGN America claims it will offer an alternative to the traditional Yule Log. While the flames burn, viewers will be hear timeless shows from the Golden Age of Radio..."

    They had a story about this on CBS Morning on Sunday. More of a spoof story than anything else.

    The new yule log is a gas fireplace. No kidding.

    Only if you have an older-generation plasma.

    Newer plasmas and all LCD's are pretty much immune to screen fire burn in.


    Jeff the answer man :)

    Oh. My. God.

    When I saw the topic pop up again, I thought "I'll bet someone will want a Yule Log in 3D."

    For those who have absolutely nothing to do. Sit and stare at a 3D Yule Log. At least with the standard Yule Log, you just have it playing while you are doing things like wrapping or exchanging presents. We really have become a nation of couch potatoes. Hmm, Potatoes. Wonder how they will do on the Yule Log.
