    I know! I took matters into my own hands and put up an OTA tower and now I not only get CW in HD, but also WNEP, Baltimore & Philly markets... All in HD!!!

    Channel 33 WITF is completely unwatchable today, from at least 10 am on. It has been very spotty for at least a month.
    I have never had an issue using my own antenna to this station.

    What happened to Fox 43 WPMT HD? Trying to watch the Arizona Cardinals game.

    Although the guide lists the shows as HD, I have yet see anything actually in HD. I just started looking tonight though. Have you seen anything actually in HD?

    Only CW programming is in HD. The shows on tonight were not from the CW network and as a result no HD. Note that they are operated by WHP-21. Because WHP has no HD recorders syndicated shows like "Wheel of Fortune" and "Jeopardy" show in their guide as HD but are not shown that way. I would guess that if they don't have the recorders for WHP that they also do not have them for WLYH. As a result although those syndicated shows are available in HD, WLYH does not have the equipment to show them that way. I did see one of the CW shows was in HD on Thursday evening.

    That's a pretty good explanation, I always did wonder why jeopardy was never HD on 21. That really stinks though for 15 because other than the Phillies, I don't watch anything on that channel but I would start watching Big Bang re-runs there if they were HD and they aren't. I assume Phillies will be HD since 21 has CBS sports in HD.

    Any idea why these 2 channels are only in 2.0 audio? Is it a bandwidth thing? This company really needs to improve to catch up. WGAL, WPMT and WHTM are all far superior with both HD news and HD syndication. (granted WGAL is just widescreen news)

    I don't know about the audio. I did hear somewhere that an HD recorder had been in the WHP budget for 2011 but then was postponed because of the economy. WHP and WLYH certainly do have a lot of catching up to do to compete with the rest of the market. I would think you are right about the Phillies games because it would be a live feed like that coming from the CW network.

    Lancaster,...
    Especially with WHTM news going HD, WHP is really left in the dust. That may just get them ramping up a little faster are they are the only area newscast now still in all lowly SD.

    Last I heard when I talked to WHP, as noted above, they had HD recording equipment in their budget for 2011 but who knows when they will actually happen.

    Well. The phillies are not in HD on channel 15 today. Not encouraging at all. What a joke the company that owns 15 and 21 is.

    Unbelievable. I just turned back to it and it's in HD now. What a tight ship they run

    Due to the telethon on channel 8, the french open finals on sunday morning are on channel 49. According to the guide, it is in HD. That surprises me, I didn't think that D* carried the channel in HD. Has anyone ever actually seen HD on this channel? I guess we'll find out Sunday morning.

    Direct is now carrying the digital signal for channel 49. If you don't have HD duplicates hidden both the analog and digital will show in the guide. HOWEVER, I have yet to see any HD on Channel 49.
