Well we still have two listings in our guide for KWKB. The guide for one of the channels shows some shows listed as HD but they aren't in HD. I know I have the hide sd duplicates on, so I'm still not sure why that channel is still showing up. Anybody else seeing this?
I haven't checked this page in awhile but yes, I too have 2 listings in my guide. I emailed KWKB several months ago about going HD but never received a response. When I did it a time before that, I got a reply the same day. I've heard rumors that they are barely staying afloat over there. Maybe I'll fire off another email since it's a slow work day. I'll report back with any news.

Anyone having issue with the local for Cedar Rapids right now? 2, 7, and 28 keep cutting out for me and didn't know if others had the issue.
Yup, same thing for me as well. Ended up switching over to the cable locals to finish watching football. They're either having transponder or local receive facility problems by the way it looks.
