I just noted that KNME-DT upgraded PBS kids to 1080i on remapped ch. 5.2 rf 35.2.:)

The PBS kids channel looks little bitstarved at this time.

That's about it from Albuquerque!:hatsoff

They went back to 480i 16:9 so I guess they were testing to see if they can cram in 1080i mode.

I would not be surprised if they try 720p mode next time around. :)

The kids won't know the difference. KNME 5 and the 5.x channels look horrific in my opinion. I'd much rather watch the E or W feeds on 125W. I have a fixed dish on that bird here in Abq. for that very purpose.

Aggravates me to no end that my local PBS (WTVS) runs the kids channel in 1080i. Kids would be just fine with a 480i channel. Use the extra bandwidth to run FNX and NHK World.
