Doctor J Comments for the 10/15/2014 Domestic Data:

Anyone know why this local CW channel is not broadcasting any programming in HD?  Channel says HD but all of the programming is in SD.

SD Content Delivered by MPEG4

 

The post below, from another thread, triggered the thought that we should identify Standard Definition (SD) content which is delivered via MPEG4 compression as a part of the weekly TPN Map.  This information is not available in our TPN Map data itself, but must be manually determined using  ‘Native’ mode and the display on your receiver.

 

Beginning with this week’s data, Green shading will identify Standard Definition (SD) channel content transmitted using MPEG4 compression.  Since this is a manual process, only MPEG4/SD CONUS channels will be shown at this time.  Puerto Rico, for example, receives most of their SD content via MPEG4; the ‘Native’ mode procedure would need to be run where those channels can be received.  There may also be domestic LIL channels where MPEG4 is used to deliver SD content.

 

It remains to be seen where the WTLF issue above, "says-it-is-HD-but-provides-only-SD" will be resolved.
