WWJ DT3

Post by Splouge » Wed Sep 04, 2019 5:41 pm

62.3 is now on the air, but just a test pattern with scrolling pixel text saying "WWJ-TV DT3 DET" and it doesn't really scroll, it's more like the letters change positions really awkwardly. And sometimes the letters change, here are some examples

"WWWJ-TV DT3 DET"
"WWS-TV DT3 DET"
"WWJ-TV DJ3 DET"
"WWJ-TV DT3 EET"
"W3J-TV DT3 DET"

And this isn't an occassional screw-up, this is in the actual moving text loop!


The only time when it would ever be necessary to be political is if our right to pursue our happiness is taken away. Otherwise, leave politics to politicians!

The actual moving text now only says, repeatedly, WWJ-TV DT3 DET.
The scrambly text earlier was due to steps needed to program the scrolling message in the test generator.

It isn't fixed, still doing weird typos

But, with the added attraction of infomercials and Martha Stewart

I just saw what you're talking about with the cryptic characters. Perhaps someone was a bit sloppy with their typing and doesn't realize how to fix it. Whatever they're using to generate those graphics is a piece of crap though, as the crawl reminds me of when we tried to use a Commodore 64 for something similar back in the 80's!!

It's so simple, I have no idea how they screwed it up. The right side is fine but it messes with characters on the left. How do you even make a bad character generator? It's such a simple thing, you would think that they wouldn't make it a sloppy mess. It generates TEXT. How can it not even handle that?! It's almost as if it IS being operated by a C64!
