This is great news. Any idea what satalite these will be going on?

I'm assuming it will be MPEG4 off D10 or D11.

It will definitely be MPEG4. It may be on D10, D11, SW1 or SW2. Johnstown-Altoona, PA's HD locals were just added in August 2008, but they are broadcast from SW1.

A note of caution. Fox 55 is off the air(analog) right now. Apparently they are having problems with all of their signals, including the direct feed to cable and the satellite companies, according to their website. They might not be back on the air before tomorrow morning.

WFXS is experiencing a technical difficulty and is not broadcasting properly at this time.. The outage affects smaller cable system homes, off-air viewers and both satellite dish subscribers.

Engineers are on the tower trying to find the cause of this problem and it will be corrected as soon as possible.

We apologize for the inconvenience." :nono2:

Oops, They are in HD. I was looking for 7.1, 9.1, 12.1 and 55.1. They are there but no ".1" after them. Fox 55 is broadcasting at this time.

Actually, on your headline you should change it to Wausau-Rhinelander WI not MI. The "u"per is just across the border. :lol:

I am getting a signal on 55. I am not sure if it is NY 5. Channel 9 audio is way off the video and very "jerky"

lol mike...I moved down under. Well gee if 9 has issues that sucks, Ch 12 has never been right on the 72*. Was so hoping for perfection from Directv...It's just a dream! So they are on I take it. I await.

The above comments are my own because I don't know if anyone would care about my opinions anymore.

Great news. I could not get Fox in HD until today. All channels look good. I guess I won't need a bigger antenna on my roof. All audio and video is fine on my end. They must have taken care of any issues.

7, 9, 12, 20, & 55 are all working fine here. Nice improvement over the abysmal quality that some of the SD LILs had...channel 12 ;). I'm still going to miss Supernatural in HD on the CW though.

I went home for lunch and checked them out. The digital all looks very good for me too. Nothing was in HD though while I was home.

I have to admit that I was really surprised that we got our locals now when they weren't even on the list just a month ago. Great going DirecTV™!!:lol::lol:

I too was surprised to see this happen, after not seeing
any indication that these locals would be available from Directv
in HD. I have kept just the HD tier with Charter, just so I could get the locals in HD. Thank you Directv.....
