Yeah, but there could be some catches there. A condition of their HDTV license from the CRTC is that all programming *available* in high definition be shown in high definition. Now I don't think the kind of movies they're currently showing are actually available HD, but I do know some "movie packs" that stations can buy from the studios *are* provided with an HD option. City tends to get those (you know, that month where they suddenly have HD movies three times a week?)

all movies should be broadcast in High Defintion. They are captured on Film. Thats HD so there is no reason why it can't be shown in high def. SUNTV knows that extra money it costs to purchase a HD copy of a movie doesn't pay off yet, their HD audience is probably 5% and SD/analogue audience is 95%

OK here's something I want to know:

On Monday WNLO is becoming the CW. Will they then go to HD on 23.1 for the CW. Or will it remain WIVB on 23.1, and CW on 23.3?

I'd really like to see WNLO HD by the start of the program season. Or else it'll be a disadvantage for me, as I got the formerly WB shows in HD up until this point.

Nothing will change come the launch of CW. You will just notice that well watching WNLO SD on its two frequencies, the graphics won't be UPN anymore.

supposely, WIVB has getting an HD encoder for the CW network a 'priority' and in best case scenario, will have WNLO is HD in 2 to 3 weeks.

my guess is that it will be towards the end of this year, start of next year before we see Smallville, Supernatural, Everybody Loves Chris, Veronica Mars (or actually SUNTV may be showing that in HD this year) ...etc in HD.

Darn. I really wanted them to be live by the start of this season. 2-3 weeks would be fine...but wasn't it supposed to be live last winter? So who knows if it's really going to be that soon.

for a short time, probably a year or more ago, WNLO was in HD, I remember watching enterprise on that channel in HD.

I notice CFTO are showing jeopardy in HD now, yet WKBW are still showing the down converted SD version....strange.

Is there a date set when myTV will start broadcasting on 34-1 instead of on 49-1?

I have heard that at the moment 49-1 is actually broadcasting myTV (with the very weak signal formerly of the WB) while 34-1 (at a much stronger signal) is broadcasting a Japanese Soap during the daytime as a test signal. At some point the testing will be over and myTV will be broadcast with the 34-1 stronger signal. I am asking if anyone knows when they will stop the testing and actually start showing myTV programing with the stronger signal.

This is what I know:

This was the response I received from WUTV/WNYO when I asked if the transmitter move would be done by MyTV Buffalo launch:

First, thank you for your email. The answer is no. I cannot complete
this until later in the month of September due to regulations that exist
between the US and Canada regarding television signals.

Sorry for any inconvenience.

it doesn't work like that. They only have one frequency to transmit on, and therefore only one transmitter can be on at a time.

currently,
175kW transmitter broadcasts test signal during day on 34-1 (no remapping)
0.65kW transmitter broadcasts MYTV at night on 34-1 remapped to 49-1

Newbie here from North York, near York University if anyone is familiar with it. I am just wondering, as I am about to purchase the MyHD MD-130 card from my computer. I was just wondering which indoor antenna would be best suited. I guess I live about 20km north of CN Tower, if anyone has a good idea which antenna (indoor) I could use, and that I could receive the US HDTV channels as well.

Thanks

Hi all,

I just got my ATI HDTV wonder card and I got no HDTV signal at all when I checked the signal strength in the DTV application.

I live at North York ( Finch / Yonge, in the middle of Finch and Sheppard). On the 3rd floor of a condo and my window is facing exactly east. I'm still using ATI supplied antenna.

Anyone lives close by? Is there anything I can do to improve the HDTV signal and receive some channels?

Thanks!!
