Re: News 12 Traffic and Weather goes HD next week

I'd just like to know what week was supposed to be 'next week'? No upgrade seen, just like we haven't seen the STB update, either.

It was removed from my TiVo this morning, which is never a good sign.

Up in CT. Graphics are HD, CT DOT cameras are 4:3 with blue side bars.

while it would be "nice", i doubt we will see HD DOT cameras anytime in the future.

No sign of it in Dutchess.

Not sure why anyone even cares about traffic cameras and weather maps in HD so I dont think you are missing much if you arent getting it. Where are the rest of the Showtime and Starz movie channels in HD ? Content that actually looks GOOD in hd ?

You bring this up in every HD thread that pops up. No amount of complaining is going to get those channels any quicker.

You're not missing much. The weather graphics and traffic cameras only use the center part of the screen.

I'd like to know how this channel is now formatted on an SD box.
It's it letter box or 4:3 ?
There is no “dual" SD/HD QAM channel for this channel, so I'm going to assume it's letter box on an SD box.
Additionally, 4:3 "safe zones“ are being used so i see no point in this being in HD other than better picture quality.

It's 4:3, with just lower quality and the sides cut off compared with the HD. No bars.

The traffic maps and graphics for weather are full screen for me... the only thing that is not HD are the cameras and commercials.....

Many of the cameras are 16:9. But Cablevision puts an ad at the bottom of the screen, so they shrink the camera image and put bars on the sides.

You can say that about 85% of the content on television.
