This is not good.. I can't pick up UPN. Bye bye Smallville... /cry.
In a month, no one will be able to pick up UPN.
CW is the network we care about now,
Veronica Mars, Supernatural, Smallville, etc.
Yes, however, in my area it appears CW will be broadcasting from the old UPN Towers.
Lucked out here, they got the old WB station, which had HD last year, and comes in great at my house.
Yeah they got our UPN towers here in Tampa. The signal quality has always been horrible for UPN so looks like I may be dropping the CW shows. The quality is equal to OTA reception with rabbit ears.
That technically shouldn't be possible with DTV.. IT's usually either a great picture or scrambled/freezing/nothing.
Well it depends on how interdependent the frame elements are; it's certianly possible to only have a few garbled blocks here and there without scrambling the whole thing. (OTOH, an error or two in just the wrong place can destabilize the whole picture.)
The other possibility, of course, is that the source material from the UPN station wasn't very good.
It can certainly happen if DirecTV's local uplink center isn't getting a good picture from the TV station in the first place. I've never seen DirecTV in Tampa, but Channel 44's picture isn't all that good on cable there, so I'm not particularly surprised to find out that it looks bad on DirecTV, too.
