    Buffalo HD Locals

    I had the Slimline and a second h20 installed yesterday and the installer told me that yesterday morning they were told that Buffalo locals would launch mid Feb.

    DIRECTV to Deliver Local HD Programming in 67 Markets by Year End

    There is no way they are reaching that 12 markets goal either. A CSR told me that Buffalo will not go up unit mid January. I believe I have seen other people being told by CSRs that there markets, that were listed as next 12, are being pushed back as well.

    Slimline in buffalo,ny

    It appears that according to D*'s third qtr conference call that they have reduced the number of local launches by 10. There has been no word on which 10 DMA's got pushed back. So that will leave 12 new markets by year end. If we don't have them by early December it looks like we will have to...

    HD Locals in Buffalo?

    Didn't mean to imply you had any insider info. Sorry if it sounded that way. It just sounded logical combined with what I was told by the local dealer.

    HD Locals in Buffalo?

    On my thread in the HD section Charper1 said that with Buffalo being a 2 major sport city that he would expect us to be in the last group for 2006. So it seems to be realistic.

    HD Locals In Buffalo

    I live in Buffalo and I talked to a local dealer last night at the fair. He told me we should be getting our HD locals at the end of December or early January. He also told me the new Slim Line dish should be out in September or October. I just hope he knows what he is talking about.

    Picture in Picture Question

    Never tried it, but I don't think it will work because there is only one feed coming out of the box even though there are two internal tuners. Could be wrong though.

    Picture in Picture Question

    You need two separate video feeds for PIP. That is why it is only working when you DVD or VCR are in operation. If you want to watch two separate channels you would need to separate D* receivers.

    World Cup HD

    Has anyone else been having sound sink problems an ABC? It was happening frequently during both games on Saturday. More so during the first game. It was like 10-15 sec behind the video and it even carried over into commercials. I was watching it via OTA in Buffalo.
