It's on 101w right now replacing TouchVision. See the usual forum for the specs. FatAir posted it, and I'm watching it now. Use WDJT-DT4 on TitanTV, as it's the guide and programming showing now.

KPIX in San Francisco added 5-2 today, with the channel identified as Decades, but so far there's been no picture or sound, just a black screen.

KOVR 13.2 Sacramento has "Decades" up and running and it looks good. KPIX 5.2 San Francisco is labeled as "Decades" in the PSIP info, but they haven't added the feed yet. We're still seeing black screen.

Last night on NCIS I noticed digital break up on 11-1 I don't know if it was because of 11-2 "Decades" but strongly suspect it
