    WBBM 11 artifacting and sound is always out of sync.

    Any hope that we will get WCIU 26 in HD once D12 is live? I dream about a 100% HD via D* Cubs season.

    Is anyone experiencing a low volume on WCIU-HD? It was very low on Saturday night and Sunday morning. I called DTV to let them know and they forwarded to engineering to look into it.

    Just wondering if any one else had the same issue or if they might have adjusted already.

    Based on the test channel data, WYIN -56 could be the next HD local that is lit up for us.

    I live in Northern Illinois and was wondering if I should be able to get WYCC 20. It would be nice to get PBS in HD.

    WYIN 56-2 SD (Ka) is lit up.
    The prog guide on it is identical to the main ch, but it actually appears to be PBS Kids, so obviously they are having a prog guide issue on it.
    And, it appears that WYIN makes nary a mention of this subchannel on their own website... :rolleyes:

    PBS/Lakeshore Kids is actually 56-3 OTA. 56-1 and 56-2 are HD channels showing the same program. One would think that would have been the choice to broadcast. Somehting is strange.

    WCIU-26 and WPWR-50 are in HD. Just noticed after watching a recording of Sox game, took me 4 innings to realize it was recorded on WCIU. How long has it been in HD?

    The sound is all off on CBS lately. The best example was David Letterman on Friday night was all Bass. How I met your mother is turned up pretty far tonight. Anyone else nothing issues?

    Many OTA channels are not appearing in the guide properly. Please fix! Zap2it/tribune Media has WPVN and WOCK listed properly but not WCIU, despite my efforts to inform them of the recent change.

    WCIU-DT RF27 now has 5 subchannels as of 12/15/10:
    26-1 WCIU
    26-2 U2
    26-3 METV
    25-4 METoo
    26-5 This

    need to remove 26-6 and insert 26-5 into the guide lineup since it is not showing up.

    Also, WPVN-LD RF 20 has 4 channels not listed in the guide:
    24-1 RTV
    24-2
    24-3 Community Access
    24-4 Polvision

    WOCK-LD RF 4 is not showing up:
    13-1 MEGA
    13-2 Airang
    13-3 LATV
    13-4 MCTV

    All the HD Locals are coming just fine here

    Are you getting a search-signal error? You may have some snow pileup on your dish from the heavy snow last night.
