First off, cut out the arrogance, that's why people respond the way to you
they do sometimes.

Also in the Hartford Market there are two stations on the air, WTNH-DT (The
FIRST DTV on the air in this area), and WFSB-DT. And in the Springfield
Market (Yes, they are SEPERATE markets), WGBY-DT.

OK Now about your accusation comparing the two .

TV (Analog):  NTSC Standard, 2 Channels Audio (3 if you count SAP), One
Video Channel per carrier, Analog encoded, Requires significant power to get
a decent signal, 1.33:1 Aspect Ratio.

DT (Digital): 8VSB standard, 6 Channels Audio, Datastreaming, Four Video
Channels per carrier, digital encoding, requires less power to get a decent
signal, can have an aspect ratio of 16:9.

Where I work we deal with two systems, completely DIFFERENT... Digital and
Analog. In order for one to work with the other, the router MUST route
THROUGH a Digital to Analog Converter... if they are the same thing, then
why don't we just plug our digital units into the analog ones? It sure would
save us a lot of money that way!
