NBC Is Not In HD

Olympics.  I spent an hour and a half on the phone last night with our TV provider, Dish Network, because the main NBC signal was not in HD.

For the opening ceremonies on Friday we were treated to a squarish, fuzzy, unfocused picture coming out of WDTN channel 2 in Dayton, Ohio.  When the same crappy picture appeared at 8 PM last night, I found that Dish has a chat feature.

Miraculously, around 9:30, a HD pic appeared.  And it stayed HD the rest of the evening.

This morning, we are back to the same squarish, fuzzy, unfocused picture.

The Dish chat facility does not open until 5 Mountain Time.  In about 6 minutes.

UPDATE:   After several minutes of a ‘black screen’, the NBC flagship channel on WDTN appeared in HD, about 7:02 this morning.  While, why what I recorded overnight is in “the squarish, fuzzy, unfocused picture” category will remain a mystery.
