Why does Ch 23 and 45 have a black border on each side, while 17, 29 and 58 has the full HD screen? Anyone? Anyone? Bueller......Bueller?

Just my thoughts. I think the broadcasts that have the bars have been recorded in SD and the channel is up converting to HD. If someone has a better explanation hopefully they'll let us know.

It looks like WBIN 50 HD in Boston/NH is being turned on Friday at 6:00 a.m. That leaves only 38 and 68 (which is available on Ion 305) that are HD OTA, but not on Directv AFAIK.

Now that Santa Cruz locals are live, I have three (3) AM21 receivers available for someone who needs them to receive over the air locals. I'm only interested in covering the cost of shipping so if you are interested, let me know via private message.

I have an unneeded AM21, and a rooftop antenna now - hmmm what to do with them.

Thinking it might be a nice project for my 3 year old on our "take apart Sundays"

I plan to preserve my Antenna for use to pull in the many channels available over the air which DTV doesn't include in the locals in HD lineup. There are several subchannels which are actually pretty good, such as THIS.
