When does TWC air full screen LOT8s during longform? It seems to be inconsistent; sometimes it's :08/:38 and others it's :18/:48.
I seriously think it's once a hour @:18

Is there even any significant difference between an IS and a IS2jr? Appearance-wise they all seem the same to me.

Although, it makes sense to replace the IS with the IS2jr since it's like an offspring of the IS2.
The I2jr has the Cantore Vocal Local, whereas the IS still uses Allen Jackson. And the graphics, in regards to the page transitions, on the i2jr are a little quicker and more abrupt, and the temperature on the CC screen rapidly counts up to the current temp, like the IS2.  I would notice the difference, but the average viewer probably wouldn't.

That animation was removed from the IS1 but it never was on the IS2 or IS2Jr, instead they had text only without the graphic. It seems that TWC added this to the IS2 and IS2jr very recently.
Right, the bulletin page (like in this video) had been text-based as far as I knew, up until this point

Does anyone know when the Weather bulletins graphic returned? I know it was like this originally, but thenit was changed to be text only.

The I2jr radar was updated, too. It's easier to see and it now has the time lapse bar at the top, which it did not have before, but I think the regular IS already had that, right?

The original two production songs are still in the rotation, they've just added like maybe (5?) new production songs into the rotation.

Have they always shown Special Weather Statements on the crawl? Perhaps I just never noticed before

Do you mean since the relaunch a year ago or in general? If you mean in general, they always showed SWS, but before the relaunch it was shown on an orange crawl. I *think* I've seen a SWS since the relaunch though.

"Special Weather Statement" "Weather Bulletin" and "Winter Weather Bulletin" were some of the few that were shown in orange on the XL

This looks to be the best background instead of using 130 repetitive ones.
I agree, it's much better looking!

Is that from the IS or IS2Jr.?
Looks like he used the graphics from a recorded clip of my areas I2jr

Yes! It's from the movie "The Island" it plays at the end before the credits.

I just noticed that the days of the week in the 7 Day Forecast are no longer capitalized in the IS2 and it's LDL.
Same with I2jr

And the narration problems continue :P I2 HD Local: 6/26/14

I2jr has been doing pretty much the same thing. It will get to the first local forecast screen and just say "Today" or "Tonight" with the music ducked down and then the following screen narrates fine

I was wondering if there are any noticeable differences between the IS2 and IS2Jr since the graphics update. From what I can see, I can no longer tell the two apart at all.
I think the only noticeable difference is the wasted space on the right during the LF on the IS2. As far as graphics alone, you wouldn't notice

Well, I can say that IT DOES have the ability to download/receive new graphics/updated graphics. Because they changed last week.
