    I wasn’t sure I’d live to see the day.

    Tonight, April 23, 2009, after transmitting HD broadcasts for about five years, KFOR-DT showed a weather map and weather crawl over the NBC high-definition picture.

    No dropping to their incredibly horrid washed-out SD picture.

    There are still some kinks to work out (like KOKH, the new system alternates between a county map of warnings and a small radar map, but one of them has an opaque black background that blocks too much of the picture, and the whole thing should be further up and to the right), but KFOR didn’t drop out of HD to show a map of severe weather.

    Although in the past week or two, I’ve noted KOKH-DT and KOCB-DT briefly dropping out of HD to show severe weather warnings and crawls, and then bumping back up to HD when the crawl is over. I appreciate that, but would still prefer not losing HD at all. Please please please please don’t tell me KOKH/KOCB is falling behind KFOR in HD transmission. I’m not sure I could handle a world that upside-down.

    But we’ve been waiting so long for KFOR to stop pooping all over HD that it deserves mention and, if not praise, at least relief.

    I was impressed by that as well. Plus, they have rock solid signal. I struggled through CSI on KWTV-DT last night. It broke up badly until about the last 10 minutes. I might have to start watching it on TV.com if their signal continues to be unreliable.
