Weather Channel HD

First off for any weather geeks like me the local on the 8's looks awesome in particular the radar in HD. But is anyone else getting the regular programming in 4:3 or is it just me?

Yeah. TWC appears to be 4:3 SD, except for the 'On the 8's' Forecast...which are HD. Strange.

I agree, "Locals on the 8's" looks great. And yes, other than that TWC is broadcasting in 4:3, just like NFL Network, even when they show replays of HD games. The weird thing is I saw a map of the U.S. on Weather Channel that looked pinched, as if expanding the picture to 16:9 would have shown it correctly. Which leads me to believe these could be glitches right now.

The weather channel in HD is a really big waste of bandwidth.

You think? I had the Weather Channel on half the day (of course, I wasn't sitting right in front of it and watching). Had it on while I was working in my home office.

As in the Dallas Cowboys? You have got to be joking.

As for the Steelers, let me know when they play somebody.
All
tomlin is doing is running cowhers schemes with cowhers players.

Lets see what Tomlin does when all that is gone.

From what I have heard, TWC won't have their studio ready for HD until after the first of the year so it will be mostly SD until then.

TWC is in the process of building a new $50 million HD studio, so the regular programming will be in standard def until sometime next year. The locals and two new long-form prime time programs will be in HD until that time.

The Patriots are playing on a different level than everyone else. The Steelers? C'mon. Not even close. If they were in the NFC, they would have a chance. Not in the AFC.

Why would Tomlin make any changes when you got most of the players from SB 2 yrs ago...Obviously it worked 2 yrs ago and seems to be working (3-0) this year...And what exactly should we do about schedule??? We just spank em as they come..

Isn't the point of this forum to enlighten? No he is not kidding! Why don't you tell him (and me). lol I assume it means every 10 minutes on the 8 i.e.. :08 minutes after the hour, 18 min after the hour etc. :busy:

Thanks for the info. btw, FINALLY saw an HD signal on CNN at 6 p.m. A few other stations that looked like crap, I caught an HD presentation on them and they looked great.

I do, but telling a joke while flipping people off can be distracting ;)

What!? Seriously, what man can't stare at the weather channel for hours, particularly in the midst of a natural disaster?
