This Standard def channel now has a bad line across the top.
Why is Directv sending this SD channel in HD format. Does nothing to help picture quality.

WNCT DT2 was just changed to 720p HD. Hopefully Directv will change it to HD also.
Now WNCT carries 2 hd channels.
WNCT DT1 CBS HD 1080i
WNCT DT2 CW HD 720p

What is is going to take for this station to correct that unpleasant mess? Does anybody care about Home Theater viewers?

Directv changed ch 15 The CW to 720p HD a few weeks ago. Directv also added Ch 38 ION HD to the local channel range.

Directv has not added the HD tags to the program guide for WNCT DT2 (ch 15) CW HD. The station went HD couple of months ago but Directv is not using HD tags in the guide. They also still list as SD on the local channel look up page.

I noticed that our local channels, except for UNC and UNC-EX, which are on another transponder, suffered from rain fade yesterday.
I checked my signal levels compared to a year ago, and 103S(s) transponder 4, which carries all the local stations, has dropped signal strength from 95 to 88 over the past year, probably due to changes in spot beam configuration. All other transponders 0n 101, 109 and 103 that provide channels for our market remain in the 95 to 100 range on a clear day. The weaker signal on transponder 4 gives less margin for rain or other signal attenuation.
I am in River Bend, on the south side of New Bern.
