Cox Kansas is all the same except local channels. If Topeka gets a channel, Wichita and the rest of KS get it. Our channel lineup is 99% the same as all of Cox KS. Just like TWC is channel 2 on all of Cox for Kansas, channel 2002 is TWC HD.

Quality is obviously very bad since I shot it with my iPhone, sorry about that, but here's the IS2 with the new ad crawl.

Interesting, but I'd rather see a current conditions LDL down there.  :)

I'd still like to see an LDL on the local forecast, though the upper-left corner does that already.  Still... it seems like an awful lot of wasted space.

Seems fair to me. You are watching a local forecast which already has the current conditions. The cable companies need some incentive to get the IS2 hardware and this certainly helps

You're right...it's almost like the IS2 was made for an LDL with all that blank space at the bottom, but maybe not. :unsure: I guess "LDA" is the new thing now. :thinking:

The LDA is where it's at.. I've noticed several stations putting data on the sides of the screen rather than the bottom lately.

An LDL would help with the waste of space, but it'll be even more info thrown at you. Think about it, you already have the actual LF and the sidebar/LDA. Some of the info that could be in the LDL is already in the sidebar, so it would be redundant.

I can see both sides of the argument here but the truth is that the majority of current information is shown within the first 15 seconds of the LOT8s...then hidden away until it comes around on the LDL.  I would prefer seeing rotating text at the bottom (in the wasted space between the radar and the TWC logo) with all of the data shown on the old blue LDL.  Wind direction speed/gusts, pressure, dew point, humidity, cloud ceiling, etc. since the current/forecast temps are shown in the LDL.  It doesn't have to be fancy, just text rotating much like the old 4000 or something.
