    Seems to be back down. I was receieving a signal strength of 94 before but now the dreaded weak signal. It looked good while it was up, hopefully they are close to going truely live with the channel.

    Just locked it in!
    Already found two issues.
    1. The sound is low. It seems to match the HDTV showtime/HBO volume, which is ok but when I switch to Fox 35 OTA I get blasted.
    2. In SD mode the screen doesn't fill like with FOX, I still have black borders and there is a small interference line across the top. HD mode looks great, even at 4/3. Hopefully NYPD tonight will be 16x9.

    Nope they are down. I was hoping that they would stay on and give nypd a test run in high def but alas we will have to wait until next week. Anyone have a personal contact over at abc let us know what their plans are.

    39 is back up. I'm watching NYPD Blue. Is it supposed to be in 4:3?

    Not from my understanding. I was watching it also. I noticed twice when they tried to throw the switch that it failed. Looked like they had some equipment problems. Thats okay, they are on the right track. Hopefully they will have this all resolved by this weekend.

    Same here, I got the feeling when the screen went nuts a couple of time with pink noise, they were trying the 16x9 switch. Oh well, baby steps are better than nothing.. Thanks for the effort so far WFTV.
