DirecTV LF clips
« on: October 09, 2008, 07:44:31 AM »
Now that I'm back at home, I finally get to watch a somewhat real LF on my own TV. ^_^

Here's a clip of the two minute LF; I never realized that they had a Regional 3-day Forecast; that's a pretty neat feature.

Here's a 1:30 LF preceded by me messing with the interactive feature; notice how you can view regional radars from all across the U.S. by using the arrow buttons. I still don't get why they don't put the current sky conditions on the interactive feature, though.

Why do the LF songs sound so clear and not distorted on the HD LF?

The HD channel has stereo audio, as opposed to the mono that is broadcast over the SD channel.
My super-awesome website!

This is really cool! I wish I knew how DirecTV does this. My friend (also a TWC fan) showed me one day the local forecast on his DTV and we were both kinda stumped on how it happens.

The satellite receiver itself produces the local forecast based on the zip code you provide the receiver as your "home zip" using data that it apparently receives from TWC.
