Not real ones. Those were mirrors which were apparently never used.

The real channels are still there (and the locals deleted have been upgraded to HD). Just a house cleaning.

Any idea when the Cape Girardeau - Paducah market channels get uplinked? December's Charlie Chat had these listed as early '09.


Same thing was said about Davenport, IA/Quad Cities. I'm dying to be able to record more than 1 local in HD!

More than one? We ain't got any yet.

Oh, we can get them OTA, but signal strength is spotty at best. Sometimes we can get around 60-75% signal strength, but then at other times, it's 0. Not sure why. Don't know if it's a receiver issue or just simply an antennae issue.

I was hoping we'd get them before the NASCAR season started, but alas we did not.

Good to see ch 2,7,22,and 45, the major networks, finally in HD for Dayton, but no 26 (CW) or 16 (PBS), so I still can't take down my OTA.

It is good to keep OTA up anyway. You never know when there may be a GEM on a SubChannel.

I have a OTA for all my HD local channels and sub-channels here in Midland - Odessa, Tx. I noticed not too long ago that my HD locals were uplinked but not available yet. Overall, when they do become available. I'll still be using my OTA cause I get great reception from all my major networks. :)

You watch 26? :eek2:

Keep your antenna anyway so you can record 3 channels at once, you never know when you might want that.

I went the CEO email route.. something I save for dire situations, as not to abuse it, they waived the $60 fee they were going to charge to exchange out my Dish (61.5) for a 1000+ so I can get 129. 10 years of loyalty should be worth something...they agreed. HDLocals on Tuesday..barring any unforseen events... ;)

In the uplink a few weeks ago KCRG was listed as 5250. Maybe they haven't gotten an agreement yet with them. I know that KFXA and KGAN are owned by the same company and have the same news anchors for their nightly news.

Here's a repeat of my posting on AVS Forum regarding KCRG-HD and Dish.
KCRG is trying to get Dish to retransmit their HD feed. Here's the response I got from John Phalen, KCRG Station Manager.

About a month ago I had heard that Dish Network was telling people that they would launch local HD service here on 2/18. I have left several messages for David Moskowitz, Senior Vice President and General Counsel, who’s signature is on our current analog retransmission agreement. He has never returned an of my calls.

Earlier this week we received a copy of an email from a Dish Network employee sent to their local distributors indicating that they were launching HD here and it included KCRG. I responded to the person who had issued the email and asked how they were able to do that without our consent. She admitted that they had misinformed their distributors and that KCRG should not have been included. When I asked her why I had not heard from anyone regarding our digital signal she referred me to another person. This individual stated that they were launching only with the stations with whom they had already negotiated digital retransmission agreements (KGAN, KFXA) and that they would wait to negotiate with the rest of us until our current analog agreements expire. In our case that is December 31, 2009. When I asked if they would be interested in negotiating with us now, they said no.

I also plan on continuing the dialog with Dish Network regarding not waiting till December. I am ready and willing to negotiate now.

Regards,
John Phelan

That sucks, I hope Dish gets them going. Thanks for that info. At least I now know what's going on. What about KWWL?

WSYR Syracuse show'd up yesterday.

Good thing too, at 50 miles away, OTA signal is real weak. Normally only aobut 55%. It wasn't in time for the Oscars, but in plenty of time for this week's Lost.
