The technical side of broadcasting. Think IBOC is a sham? Talk about it here! How about HDTV? Post DX reports here as well.
One of Big Cable's selling points has been that, unlike Satellite TV (Dish/Direct, etc.), weather-related outages due to rain, snow, ice and wind were just not ever an issue with cable. During our recent bits of nasty weather (snow, ice, wind) I've seen a few program services and networks (delivered to the cable co. by satellite) themselves suffer loss of signal or frequent breakups, at least until the downlink dishes got de-iced or the snow shoveled out of them.
Here in Fairbanks Alaska we consistently lose our locals on DIRECT even thought the over the air signals are fine...Pisses wife off when her soaps don't record...for some reason the former FOX station that has went MY and ME TV is not HD and wrong resolution on DIRECT..blown up..stretched...too wide
