We live in the eastern most part of Sandusky county (44811) and when we upgraded to HD service in 2009 our locals switched to Toledo from Cleveland. I've talked to customer service numerous times to no avail. They're contending that Sandusky county is Toledo locals. The kicker is that our parents live right next door, a mere 100 yards away, in the same county and they get Cleveland locals and have HD service. We both work in the Cleveland area and that's home to us so we're disparate to get CLE locals back. Anyone have any thoughts?

Yep according to your zip D* does consider your area to have Toledo locals. Not sure if there is anything you can do.http://www.directv.c...?assetId=900018

If you put your zip there that will tell you the same unfortunately.

I hope soon that Mynetwork TV WUAB channel 43 will be added in HD on Directv soon.


We all hope that. Appears to be a pipedream.

Looks like we will have a carriage dispute with Fox 8. Hope they get this resolved, OTA for Fox 8 is terrible.

Anybody know why WEAO PBS 49 continues to have problems with its feed to DirecTV? Seems like they've had problems since day 1 of their HD feed to DirecTV.

Last I looked (this morning) WEAO HD was up and running.
It does seem like WEAO & WVIZ both have more than their share of glitches.
Especially on Sunday nights. Sound drop issues with me.
And it has been an issue for a long time.
Of course, no one knows why, so I quit calling on it.

WUAB 43 & WMFD 68 both became available on 11-7.

I only noticed it because I saw WUAB was missing from my Favorites program guide.
For whatever reason, when the HD comes available, the SD version disappears from the guide, but is not replaced automatically replaced with the HD version. No big deal, if I hadn`t noticed the missing channels, I would have not known.

If you're referring to the Lake Erie Monsters game that's on right now, it sure as heck isn't HD. Looks like they've got a broadcast framed for 16:9, with graphics outside the 4:3 safe area, then center-cut the 16:9, and stretched that center cut the width of the screen. Looks like a 480i composite video feed upconverted. There's nasty artifacts, graphics chopped off, a total disaster.

I've yet to see anything in HD on that channel, most times I tune in its that way though.

I thought something was wrong with my eyes or TV watching WOIO News at 10 ON WUAB.

Thanks DBS`ers for confirming I don`t have vision or TV problems.

Yep, I agree, it's very annoying.  I usually tune in for the PBS NewsHour at 7:00 pm and many times they have the problem screen up.   There's been a fundamental problem with the broadcast chain since 45/49 started feeding HD to D*.  Strange that they haven't been able to resolve it after all these years.  WVIZ, OTOH never has these problems on D*
