Thanks for looking into this! I always wondered why they didn't have FOX in HD too but since I have an OTA and pick up FOX in HD I didn't give it a lot of thought.

Now hopefully they add PBS and CW to the HD lineup but I don't watch them as much as the other channels. I watch FOX mostly for football, Simpsons, Family Guy, American Dad, and hopefully the new Dollhouse with Eliza Dushku will be good (I'm an Eliza fan).

BTW, I was also annoyed that they had the SDSU game on that night. I'm a USD graduate. But I'm not a big college football fan so it didn't matter that much to be but I know of others that didn't like it. I'm sure the local network received a few calls about it.

Having issues with FOX, the sound is cutting out and pixelation problems during Nascar races and also on American Idol.
No issues on any other channels just channel 17 (KTTW). Are others experiencing this also?
I have an HR-22 100 DVR and slimline3 dish.

With the Sioux Falls locals being HD now can I get rid of the second satellite dish? Or will I lose some of my channels if I do that?

I could be wrong but I believe we will only lose 36 which is still on 72.5.

I tested it tonight and you don't lose any channels. Directv is actually rebroadcasting the HD version of 36 CW now too. It even lists a couple of programs in the guide as being HD, though I haven't tried watching one yet to see if it actually is. So the good news is we can get rid of the extra dish. I just finished taking mine down.

Have not been on here for some time since nothing new ever seems to happen. I noticed that 23 KCSD is showing up as 1080i on my set. Has it been this way for a while or is this new? No HD logos in the guide.

Can we take down 72.5 even if we have older non-HD equipment, too?

Audio drop-outs on Fox Chanel 17 during House on 04-26-10. They replaced the Bbbbbbbrrrrrrrrrrpppppppppppppppppp with dead air. Missed a great deal of the dialog.

I have also noticed during House and Fringe this past week where the screen goes black for minutes... not sure if it's a DirecTV issue or a KTTW issue.

KTTW FOX17 is really breaking up bad during the CWS / CHC game tonight. Anyone else having the same issue? Just had my dish tweaked a couple of weeks ago and have signal strengths in the 90s.
The weather is clear at the moment.

Gonna go WAY out on a limb and say that the issues are being caused by the severe weather occuring in Sioux Falls.

Day 3 of no local FOX channel. Called last night to see if they would activate the DNS channel but not go.

So when exactly are they going HD... I thought KELO was suppose to in June, but still SD.

I would have to call KSFY pseudo HD. It appears all of the studio cameras have a pretty heavy filter on them. Very few out of studio shots are in HD and even some stories from ABC are SD. The weather graphics look great though.
I have a feeling KELO is going to blow them out of the water when they launch.

KELO is set to go ALL HD News today @5:00 PM. Looking forward to the change. I have been told that the upgrade will also include DD 5.1 audio.


EDIT: And it looks quite good IMO.

Just got an email that KDLT and KTTM may be dropped on Jan. 1 from Midcontinent over a retrans dispute.
I have not heard if D* will also be having an issue.

Could someone please tell me if KELO is now broadcasting in DD 5.1. According to the chief engineer they are on cable and OTA in the Sioux Falls area. Thanks

Would anyone be upset if I bumped this? Still looking for an answer.
