    Although they never answered my emails, CW 46 Reno appears to now be in HD. As for the AM21, the Guide seems to indicate it has been mapped to 27-2.

    If your boxes are networked, be nice to see the text string return from an IP query for data on that channel (KRNS-46 HD isn't it?), since its not indicated in the latest TPN map release.

    Some stations still don't have the ability to air syndicated programming in HD, which isn't reflected by the guide, try checking during prime time. And also check DirecTV's feed, many stations that originate on SD subchannels over the air provide an HD feed to cable and satellite providers via fiber.

    Until a few months ago (when I reported it), our DirecTV provided PBS didn't have HD tags even though it was in HD. Our local ABC via DirecTV has had HD tags on it for months even though DirecTV only started offering it in HD this past Wednesday (it's SD OTA).

    The program you're referring to is available in HD, but as stated below:

    Yeah, I contacted Tribune about how my local FOX affiliate only provides network programming in HD, and not their syndicated programming. Tribune just goes by whether or not the content is available in HD for stations to send... not whether or not the stations provide it as such unless the stations actually make an effort to provide accurate data to Tribune.

    OK, "Schneid" earlier (post #41) must have been referring to OTA, not the DIRECTV supplied feed.

    Didn't think the TPN maps would have missed a new local HD channel launch. Unless of course RENO were an MPEG-4 only locals market so the SD to HD channel transition would not be reflected in the maps since both versions are MPEG-4.

    Once the master CW feed was broadcast in 1080i this past June, the network is requiring their affiliates to also broadcast in HD.

    See this section in Wikipedia.

    My local affiliate is in 720p on a subchannel with our CBS station.
    DircTV does have it in their data base for the AM21.

    It doesn't say "requiring"... just "requesting."



    When I contacted my local affiliate a few months ago, I was told they'd be offering HD in 2013. I intend on contacting them in a few weeks to see if I can get a better timeframe...

    I cannot receive their signal OTA, so I'm totally dependent on DirecTV adding them in HD. With DirecTV FINALLY getting around to adding my local ABC in HD recently, my hope is that the local equipment has been upgraded to allow them to offer it as soon as it's available. :)


    I will also continue to hold out hope that DirecTV will follow Comcast and offer CW HD VOD. :sure:
