Hi,
Anyone in Austin,TX? On the local NBC station, KXAN, I see the side bars this morning. It was fine last night, but this morning, when we actually have something LIVE on NBC, I only see SD coverage (I see the black bars)

all my other HD channels are fine.

Anyone else have the same issue?

Sounds like it may be a local or an uplink issue, can you check with OTA feed or contact with the channel?

I dont have access to the OTA feed. The channel's phone line says they work Mon-Fri. LOL. But, I think it is a local uplink issue. Because I asked a friend who has cable and he also said that he is only getting the Olumpics in SD.

First day I get to be at home to watch live Olympics and it is on SD!!!!

:D
It's totally unbelievable to me how good HD looks (especially compared to what I grew up with-3 channels-4 on a really good day, B&W, and pops would make me go outside & turn the antenna mast with a pipe wrench to try to get a 'less fuzzy' picture)

Yea, it was a local problem at the affiliate. That happens to them sometimes, but they're generally good at catching it.
