Are you saying that you switched from the OTA digital channel to the Dish analog channel of the same station? If that's the case my guess is that the station did not want to interrupt the HD signal and switch to SD to show the banner. Many stations still have older equipment that requires turning off the HD to show the weather info.Calvin Carrigan said:Today we have tropical storm warnings and I was watching the Olympica via OTA in HD. When I switched to the local Dish feed the warning banner shows. I thought I should still get it OTA?
My local NBC OTA station has the "ticker" working in HD now, but the rest still "throw the Swith" when they need the "tiker"jkane said:Many stations are still trying to get all the bells and whistles working on their digital feeds. In most cases, they have the national feed going through, but have not installed or setup the equipment that adds banners and bugs to the screen.
This is also why many don't have local programming like news in HD yet.
