Only zip I was referring to is the one you posted which is for Mammoth Lakes.




The OP posted he is from Trona, CA.


You are correct. I did not mean to post that zip, I meant to post 93562, which is Trona's zip.

According to Direct's website, the zip code 93562 (Trona, CA) should be getting KCET in HD.

On a related note, does anyone know if D* intends to add the other Los Angeles PBS stations in HD anytime soon. Of the four PBS stations I get through them, KCET is by far the worst! I'm worried that they'll consider KCET HD enough for us. They don't even air This Old House!! What kind of PBS station is this?! Shameful...


And their pledge weeks are actually pledge months which occur every other month.

For some reason KCET channel 28 from D* locals is coming in at 1080i on my system. If I tune to 28-1 OTA, it comes in at 720p. Anyone else showing the same problem; 720p is correct per KCET's website. My box is set to Native On.

It is the same on my HR20-700 here in Barstow. When I set Native On, it switches to 1080i. Apparently DirecTV is converting it to 1080i. However, not to worry, KCET does not have many sports events, on which 720p does a better job of smoothing out fast movement.

I see the same anomaly, but it's not really a problem. On my 40-inch set I can't notice any difference in picture quality.

Channel 2 and 2-1 are both 1080i; Channel 11 and 11-1 are both 720p, as expected.
