UPN53 bites the dust

After watching a large number of bad recordings of stuff from NBC-HD, I decided, last night, that I really should check the aim of my antennas.

After going through the channels and tweaking the antenna around trying to see if I can find a sweet spot that can receive all the stations, which exist in 3 different directions from my QTH.

Basically, I found a spot where I could get everything except PBS...or UPN. PBS is a problem because it is much further off from the other two directions, while UPN is much further away than the other stations.

Last night, I opted to leave out PBS, because I so rarely record anything from it.

This morning I changed my mind, as I found the desire to record something from PBS.

I decided that it was time to remove UPN from my OTA HDTV recordings. Of course, it is WWHO/UPN53's fault. For unknown reasons, they have decided to not air anything in HD this season....at first I thought because they were under new UPN slanted ownership that they were refusing to air WB programming in HD, but I haven't seen them air any UPN programming in HD either. Namely the many shows which I enjoyed last year in HD from them...was there anything new that I was trying to follow this season?

So, since they aren't transmitting HD, there's no reason to waste my time recording the OTA DTV signal. Sure it is a bit clearer than analog SD by cable. But, I can record cable source from any of my ReplayTVs. But, only two of them can record from OTA HDTV...and I'd rather get content that is in HD.

Now instead of subjecting some poor random forum to a long rambling thought, I will try to consolidate those things into this blog where they can be more easily ignored profess to be collected thoughts from my mind.
