    These two stations, and DirecTV, needs to get off of their collective a***s and get these channels turned on NOW!

    I wrote e-mail to each of the stations not carried in HD by D*. The only response do far is from 25 CWW, here it is....

    They have told us that they do not have the channel space at this time. We know they are working on it and hope they will carry our HD signal in the future. You can find it on Comcast channel 192 and over the air on channel 25.1

    Sincerely,
    WCWW-TV, CW25, MICHIANA'S CW


    Comcast! Ouch!

    Questions / Comments:
    DirecTV has started to provide HD programming from
    16 and 28 so the spot beam is working for our area. Why no HD from 25?
    Any information would be appreciated.

    I don't believe that crap about not enough channel space!

    WSBT is owned by Schurz who owns about 6 TV stations throughout the country. I believe 4 or 5 of those markets have their HD locals on Directv. The last time I checked, the only station of theirs on Directv, in HD, is the station in Anchorage.
    WBND is, or was, owned by Weigel who owns the CBS station in Milwaukee. They've never been able to reach an agreement with Directv over their HD channel. Now that Schurs is buying the station, nothing will probably change.
    The SD Local Receive Facility has been at WSBT, but the HD LRF is at WNDU.

    Anyone else having pixelation issues on Channel 57.1? I've noticed issues for a few days now when I've watched Grey's Anatomy, Desperate Housewives and Private Practice.

    WSJV 28 (Fox)
    Friday, February 27th
    At least the first five minutes of Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles (gave up after that and watched online)

    Frequent audio dropouts/stuttering (each time, the receiver re-displays the dialog normalization, so I think it's hiccups in the audio stream). No visible video issues, but the intermittent audio problems have driven me to watch the online stream of the episode.

    Only reported now because I DVRed it and just got around to watching.
