Well, i'm glad i get FOX 61 OTA on my two HR20's because FOX 6 is absolutely horrible...It will have to do on my HR21 in the bedroom.
It's a sub channel of ABC 40. It's not HD as compared to FOX 61 which i get OTA in HD. So compared to that, yes, it's horrible.bigsnack said:What exactly do you mean by horrible? Do you mean that the video quality isn't good, or that it doesn't look like it's HD? FOX in Springfield is currently only an SD channel.
edit: whoops, I replied to a post that was deleted...sorry!
Gotcha. Typically when DTV launches a new DMA but with certain channels still missing/SD, it's because a legal agreement has not yet been made with said channel to carry the HD signal. Rest assured, when the paperwork goes through I'm sure those channels will be made available to the customer. This pertains to major networks, as well as PBS.bootsy said:It's a sub channel of ABC 40.

It's worse than that, it's dropping frames. Something is wrong.fingerstyle said:Channel 40 has a sync issue between picture and sound.
I'm not sure if this is sarcasm or not.shovelhd said:Agreed. CBS 3 looks great with no issues.
OK, i was just curious. I will admit, the picture was pretty good for WSHM, but i use my surround sound for the shows on CBS and it only comes through at 2.0 and not 5.1.shovelhd said:No sarcasm. I wasn't referring to the sound. HD sound level issues are all over D*. I also had it with Charter cable. It's not unique to WSHM.
Get used to Fox 6. It's not going away, and it's not going to be it's own channel. If they do the statmuxing right it shouldn't be bad.
OK, but that's not D*'s fault.Dhouse900 said:The issue I have is that FOX 6 is now in the line up as the HD FOX.. It has to be as it does not show up on my standard box guides. And on directv.com in the lookup local section it states 6 is the HD FOX. But it is still 480I. Comcrap has FOX 6 in hd
Bones and 'Till Death were in 480i on FOX 6 on D* side but if I switched to cable it was 720pshovelhd said:OK, but that's not D*'s fault.
The listings for Fox 6 show HD programs. I haven't had the chance to catch any yet. Have you, and were they in 480i?
Yes it does (however I am grateful for at least having HD LiL)shovelhd said:Well then, that sucks.
