That is what this unit is, the IS2 Alpha. Isn't it basically the national feed?

First off, that is not the IS2.. second off, where on earth did you get the idea that this was an IS2 alpha? And finally, that is the feed any receiver without an IS2 would see.
I've gone off on a journey to be a moderator at another forum, but this place will forever remain home for me~

It isn't? Crap. I guess it is the Beta STAR in New York.

The pictures you showed are of the national HD feed without any local Star at all.  The LDL and the local forecast are generated at TWC in Atlanta and broadcast throughout the entire country, the same way programming and commercials are.  A Star will broadcast OVER the local forecast portion to air a locally-produced local forecast, and an Intellistar will broadcast its own LDL OVER the national LDL.

What you showed has no involvement of any Star at all.

As Eric stated in the previous post, you have the national HD forecast, just like all Comcast and Satellite subscribers. When Comcast gets the IS2, only Satellite customers will see the feed you have captured. I sent you a picture of what the IS2 will look like when you get it.

BTW - There is no such thing as a Beta STAR anymore. The Beta has been replaced by the IS2.

Hope this helps!

We still have an Alpha HD Star here on Time Warner in NYC.

WTF how's that possible? I thiught time Warner carried the satellite feed. We were at a family ocassion in Long Island last summer and when I saw twc HD on their TV, it was the satellite feed and they had Time Warner. I thought  cablevision only carried it weird
hai.
