    2/9/09 @ 6:31 CST. Anyone else having trouble with the Chicago HD locals on 129? I'm not getting them fr the most part. When I have gotten them tonight my signal is around 25, which is about half it's normal signal strength.

    Sometimes when I try to change to one of the channels it just keeps looking for a signal. Other times after looking for signal for a few seconds I get a "we know about the problem, don't call" screen that tells me they are working on it and that I can watch non-local programming on other channels.

    Anyone else getting this for Chicago HD locals in the 6312-6316 channel range?

    Chicago HD locals moved to a spotbeam early this morning.

    If you live within the Chicago DMA you shouldn't see any difference (perhaps a stronger signal). If you don't live in the Chicago DMA then don't expect to get Chicago HD locals.
