So sad to hear of Chazz's passing! :( I never knew him personally, but I do know he has left his mark in the TWC fan community, and of course those WxSTAR 4000 emulations he did were always fun to watch.

Condolences to his family and friends. R.I.P. Chazz.

For the SD and IS2 Jr viewers, the LDL is larger in size and what we get is essentially a letterboxed version of the HD feed. Honestly, I kinda like these updated graphics compared to the old ones.  :yes:

There appears to be a nationwide IS2 Jr outage going on right now, including the Jr in Astoria. The IS2 HDs and XDs are working normally according to comments I've received on YouTube.

I would wait a few more days if not longer before everything is back up and running. It's likely that TWC is working diligently to try and restore the locals ASAP following last week's cyberattack  :yes:  but as Zach said, it will take a while for software to recover from such attacks.

Checked this morning and the locals are out again, LDL and full-screen. It sounds like the ransomware attack really did damage to the software that produces the locals, given there's only been one LF that appeared since the hack. Hopefully this gets resolved soon if not later.

Spectrum did some upgrades in my area a while back, and this is honestly the fastest download speed I have seen thus far. :blink:

I heard what sounded like an acoustic guitar instrumental on the 12:18AM ET LF. Don't know the name or artist, but I can confirm that it was NOT a track from either of the Smooth Jazz CDs. Maybe TWC is airing new songs?

UPDATE: another new track at 1:18AM ET. This one is "Times Of Your Life" by Jeffrey Garber (ID'd via YouTube's content ID system):

! No longer available
