    We live in the eastern most part of Sandusky county (44811) and when we upgraded to HD service in 2009 our locals switched to Toledo from Cleveland. I've talked to customer service numerous times to no avail. They're contending that Sandusky county is Toledo locals. The kicker is that our parents live right next door, a mere 100 yards away, in the same county and they get Cleveland locals and have HD service. We both work in the Cleveland area and that's home to us so we're disparate to get CLE locals back. Anyone have any thoughts?

    We all hope that. Appears to be a pipedream.

    Appreciate the info. Any idea how our parents are able to still get those CLE locals?

    Anybody know why WEAO PBS 49 continues to have problems with its feed to DirecTV? Seems like they've had problems since day 1 of their HD feed to DirecTV.

    Last I looked (this morning) WEAO HD was up and running.
    It does seem like WEAO & WVIZ both have more than their share of glitches.
    Especially on Sunday nights. Sound drop issues with me.
    And it has been an issue for a long time.
    Of course, no one knows why, so I quit calling on it.

    WUAB 43 & WMFD 68 both became available on 11-7.

    I only noticed it because I saw WUAB was missing from my Favorites program guide.
    For whatever reason, when the HD comes available, the SD version disappears from the guide, but is not replaced automatically replaced with the HD version. No big deal, if I hadn`t noticed the missing channels, I would have not known.

    If you're referring to the Lake Erie Monsters game that's on right now, it sure as heck isn't HD. Looks like they've got a broadcast framed for 16:9, with graphics outside the 4:3 safe area, then center-cut the 16:9, and stretched that center cut the width of the screen. Looks like a 480i composite video feed upconverted. There's nasty artifacts, graphics chopped off, a total disaster.

    I thought something was wrong with my eyes or TV watching WOIO News at 10 ON WUAB.

    Thanks DBS`ers for confirming I don`t have vision or TV problems.

    Has there been problems with 45/49 recently? Seems like more often then not there is a "Please dont call" screen up

    Yep, I agree, it's very annoying. I usually tune in for the PBS NewsHour at 7:00 pm and many times they have the problem screen up. There's been a fundamental problem with the broadcast chain since 45/49 started feeding HD to D*. Strange that they haven't been able to resolve it after all these years. WVIZ, OTOH never has these problems on D*

    Was the ACC game on 43 an upconvert? If not that was the worst HD picture Ive ever seen
