HD Feature films

Why do the networks still show some movies in SD? Isn’t is relatively easy to convert 35mm film to an HD image? Is there something here I don’t understand?

The Good New Days

I was recently in Omaha, home of thr College World Series and superinvestor Warren Buffett. Directly behind Rosenblatt Stadium, where the series has been played since 1950, sits the zoo and the IMAX. I had the good fortune to see Wild Safari 3-D there, the most spectacular movie I have ever seen. That movie puts […]

Mandate, Shmandate!

Somewhere I heard or read that the FCC has mandated that all DTV stations must go to full licensed ERP (effective radiated power) in 2005. First, is that true? Second, when must they comply? Third, which BB should I be reading so as to know stuff like this?

What is it with program guides?

According to this thread, which I presume is from 2004 (there are no years on any of the dates), OETA is supposed to be broadcasting digitally at least 12 hours per day, KWTV-DT is supposed to be on from 6:00 AM until 11:38 PM (post-Letterman), and other stuff. Now, clearly some of this is not […]

Interesting read… Apparently Berlin adopted DTV without holding onto the old analog signals and has been loving it. Their required set top box is only $100. We need to do this here in the US of A.

ERP for Fox 24 and WB 33

When you update the DTV Station Matrix, be sure to list the Effective Radiated Power (ERP) for KOKH and KOCB, instead of the transmitter power. The transmitter power for both stations is 1 kw. But the ERP will be much higher due to antenna gain. The power figures as listed are incorrect for both stations.

DTV Coverage Area

I would like to see a map of the projected coverage area of each OKC DTV signal. As a cable operator in northwest Oklahoma I am concerned that my system will be unable to receive any of these signals since the information I have gathered so far indicates that most will be operating at a […]
