KSBI-TV Expanding HD Offerings

I noticed today that KSBI-TV is carrying the SEC Network game of the week in HD, which likely means as part of their recent move the station has upgraded its equipment. They’ve also put out a press release saying the entire season of Oklahoma City Thunder NBA games will be in HD.

Inside Sooner Football Letterboxed

Does anyone else find it silly that Inside Sooner Football is shown in glorious letterboxed standard definition on KWTV? Clearly, the show is shot using HD cameras for the show, but apparently the producers aren’t intelligent enough to either zoom in on the frame when encoding for broadcast or to actually show it in high […]

Cox OKC Scrambles QAM Channels

John W. writes: I spoke to a cox rep earlier, and they have shuffled their lineup here in OKC (moving WGN to ch 19 and such). Apparently, when they did this, they also quit sending the clear QAM channels. I used to watch the HD locals through the cable on channels like 69.25 for FOX, […]

I hate AugustFest on OETA

During most of the year, OETA carries great national programming from PBS and even produces some very good local programming. They carry as much or more high definition programming than the other major networks. Except once a year when they go on the air to raise money. I understand that they need funding to make […]

OETA Added to Suddenlink in Stillwater

I’m not sure about the rest of the state, but KETA-DT has recently been added to Suddenlink’s HD offerings in Stillwater. I noticed it at a friend’s house on Saturday. Then Monday, I help a friend rescan his channel lineup and found the channel is being send via clear QAM so it can be added […]

KOCO-DT Update

I switched all my recording of KOCO-DT from the Mac over to my Dish 211K receiver and it failed to record “This Week…” this morning so both of my receivers are getting a very poor signal. I guess there won’t be any NBA Finals for me this year… On the EyeTV tuner for the Mac, […]

Problems with KOCO-DT

The last three times I’ve tried recording something off of KOCO-DT with my EyeTV and my Mac it’s failed. So, now I’ve missed the last two episodes of Lost and my whole season of recordings is messed up. Is anyone else having more problems with KOCO than usual?
