The data being read does not differentiate between SD and HD... only MPEG2 and MPEG4. WHAM-DT2 is now being simulcast in MPEG4, but there is no reason to believe it will be available in HD anytime soon. Perhaps you'll see the channel in HD a few months after DirecTV and Sinclair renegotiate. I feel your pain. My local affiliate of The CW (WSWG-DT3) started broadcasting HD OTA in October of 2013, but it's still SD on DirecTV.
