What does everyone think? Will any HD LILs be turned on this week?

Hoping for Mobile/Pensacola.

didn't see any trace of HD.

Now I was told that the projected date for us is 9/17. The exact wording used was 'tentative date is 9/17.'

I have seen numerous posts on here and other sites that show that Toledo will be included in the rollouts this month. I also called a csr and she said it is sometime in Sept. so I am keeping my fingers crossed.

Got home last night and was watching channel 3 WEAR. They are now broadcasting in HD...so hopefully DTV will flip the switch soon...

I switched to my antenna to see what it looked like, wasn't that impressed with their local news broadcast in HD. Some stories were in SD and had HD bars on both sides. I guess they still need to upgrade their field cameras yet...

WEAR started broadcasting in HD on Monday. Contrast is slightly washed, but otherwise looks pretty good. Will probably be awhile before they upgrade the field cameras, but there are 4:3 HD cameras for field use. Not as bulky/heavy as the 16:9 and use less storage/bandwidth so are more practical in certain circumstances. We should have HD from D* within 2 weeks.

As discussed elsewhere, Thursday this week is the anniversary of 9/11... most companies in the USA are still exercising a kind of "nothing major should happen" on the anniversary of this event. The consensus seems to be that our next expectations are for next week. It could be wrong consensus, but there hasn't been even a mention of anything new for Thursday and even Satelliteracer has been quiet...
