Looks like The Weather Channel will be returning to Verizon FiOS starting next week.  :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

Picked up these CDs this weekend:

Kaki King - Everybody Loves You
The Clash - Super Black Market Clash
La Bamba movie soundtrack

Honestly, I was expecting to see a lot more than some silly grayish LOT8s logo on the LDL (in place of the blue TWC logo) and leave almost everything else untouched, aside from the reduction of the number of LFs to just only two an hour. I guess TWC probably just needed the extra ad space.  :rolleyes:

My Windows 10 laptop's desktop as of this moment. I shot that glorious photo of tonight's sunset from outside my house. ;)
