The "HD" version looks waaaay better than the SD version
At least this version fills the whole screen during prime time and only has back bars on the sides instead of all around ;)

From a message from Doctor J, posted with his concurrence, of course:

No I saw those.
They are in the download data.
I did not comment as that is Usually SIXTO's domain.
It was a Spanish 400 channel and not usually something he reports automatically but was not going to comment until after I'd seen his updates this week.

Glad you are keeping me honest, but with CONUS, Spanish, International & LILs sometimes I lose focus! :)

I think we have graduated to using the "Comments from Doctor J" postings as kind of activity tracking system, and that is great! I'll go back and add those two 'new-in-test' channels to this morning's recap post!

Also its OK to remind Doctor J, its safe to not wait on Sixto regarding any SD channel changes, since he doesn't report on those. Only HD ones. ;)

Nice catch, Jamie. I would not have noticed. They are putting out a 720p signal both OTA and on DirecTV. One of the "features" of "MPEG4 only" markets, is that a switch from SD to HD doesn't get detected by analyzing the data, only by looking at the actual video stream.

When most of the content is SD, it is hard to tell that the signal has changed.

Yeah ...

Been mentioned that way by various posters at times ever since its transition to the MPEG-4/Ka band early last year;

http://www.dbstalk.c... SD#post2943941

In fact outside of anamorphic squeeze which DIRECTV hasn't used in many years, this is the only way an SD channel can be in a 16:9 format since DIRECTV always uses 4:3 for SD programs in MPEG-2 on Ku band.

While I don't think that I have ever watched the Baby First channel, that is interesting. It is a regular 720x480i signal, but it displays as widescreen. It is an MPEG4 signal, so most SD only customers can't get it.

My 4 month old watches it from time to time and now that you say something, it does look a little "squished" on our one last remaining 4:3 TV.
Our 2 HDTV's it looks ok but still pretty blurry (used to HD here).

We also watch Disney JR and she loves the colors and sound on those shows. It really grabs her attention. I hope in the future more children's programming goes HD. Cartoon type content with solid colors should compress rather well when compared to filmed content.

You have to keep in mind that aspect ratio and pixel resolution are actually unrelated unless "square" (1:1) pixels are used.

Though by keeping the horizontal pixels at only 720 while stretching them out to cover a 16:9 image will naturally cause a proportional reduction in the horizontal resolution PQ.

Since Jamie has not yet replied, I will answer. The guide data still shows it as "CW".

No all info still is the same, just now being delivered in 720p HD.

This station is in a MPEG4 only market, so the info shows

A3 Greenville, NC 15 CW



CW
Current Format: HD

This channel was just changed over the air also from SD to HD.
