it looks awkward and unmatched with the LDL on. Plus the LDA is only covering the cities for the entire country, not the area that the HD Star serves. In a sense, how will that be useful to viewers?
hai.

I personally like the LDA behind the local LDL. Although it does ruin the meaning of HD; the way I see it, it could be a resource for travel forecasts although the national radar will be blocked off by a local radar.
I've gone off on a journey to be a moderator at another forum, but this place will forever remain home for me~

The lda will remain even with the HD ldl

I thought this was eventually replacing it http://img64.imageshack.us/img64/7944/newbigldl1.jpg

Geesh, so many LDLs now it's confusing! Only two years ago, there were two main LDLs (XL and IntelliStar).  :lol:

Heck, I thought the goose laid the golden egg way back in the day when the WeatherStar 4000's LDL started showing the "Today's/Tomorrow's forecast" line! :)

The flashiness of it is really cool...but maybe a bit too much.  Flying suns and moons, spinning cubes and what have you are a little much.    Also, isn't it assumed that when the clock is displayed next to the temp that the temp is the current reading?  The flipping between NOW and the temp is not needed.  The whole thing looks good but I still prefer the old blue LDL.  Simple and not too distracting but still showing pertinent information.

Agreed with the blue LDL. But, I also love this LDL on the I2. ;)

On the new LDL the on temperature tab it has forecast for the high and low...there will no longer be the previous days high and low (yesterdays actual) like on the almanac?

Will there be ads on the HD LDLs? :dunno: Also, on the "Next 8 hours" part of this big LDL, the icons look too high. :blink:

Yes, the small LDL has ads, and the large one will soon have them too as Tyler stated.

There are currently no videos of the small LDL up yet and based on the concepts posted part of the LDL doesnt disappear like how the IS LDL does
