WXMI-HD added to the Grand Rapids, MI DMA. Only thing missing now is WOOD-HD (NBC)


SWEEEEET! Glad I stopped by here. I just reset all my season passes for the MPEG4 versions.

Now if we can just get WWMT's guide data fixed. Now it says "To be announced"

When I get switched over to the new HR20-700, I want to keep my old H10-250,, and I want them in the same room etc - Do they use different remote control codes?

I am hoping they are diffeerent so one wont interfere with the other

Thx

Pat

I should have given that caveat. I do that on Sundays during the day already. But since my Cowboys are the hottest team in the league right now ;) they are getting moved around on the flex schedule. I couldn't record the Thanksgiving day game in HD. I can't record the Sunday Night game against NO in HD, etc.

I can't live without NFLST! I've had it for years now. Oh, and FWIW at first I thought you were talking about 1310 The Ticket out of DFW. How sad is it that I'm that tuned in to the Dallas market when I live in WI? Don't answer that, it was rhetorical.

FYI,

Installer here today to fix dish problem (more on that in a second.) He told me that Harrisburg is now being quoted as February 1, for what it's worth.



D* told me the same thing on the phone last night - the date for the Harrisburg market had been pushed back to February 2007, however they did submit a waiver for "from a distance" hd locals in the mean time. I'd suggest that anyone looking for hd locals without OTA (like myself) do the same thing.

Waiver status-

CBS - was active within a day! (thank gosh I'll have the super bowl in HD)
NBC - denied the waiver
ABC - waiver still pending
FOX - waiver still pending
