Desktop (Gigabit Ethernet) → Secondary router running DD-WRT in 802.11n client mode → Main router, also running DD-WRT → Cable modem:

The download speed is slightly faster than the ISP-advertised 100 Mbps.

Any device connected to one of the secondary router's Ethernet ports gets slightly over Fast Ethernet (100BASE-TX) speeds to the main router according to iperf3.  (That means it would saturate a Fast Ethernet link.)

As of this evening, it seems to be appearing between the radar and text forecast products...but if the metro radar is active, it won't show (or it could be a combination of the metro radar and bulletin slides being active).

In the case of the I2xD in Redding, CA, both the local radar and bulletin products were active today.  Once those cleared, I saw it:

The non-forums section is gone:

Hi Folks - Been doing some house keeping on the forum as of late.
-Eliminated the old website which has not been touched ~10 years. Visiting will immediately redirect to the forum.

The IntelliStar 2 xD on Spectrum in Redding has been down for a while.

Is this a nationwide issue, or should I report it?

Maybe it is only on Fridays they play non-instrumental songs during the Local On The 8s.

Last Friday 1970's songs were played.

Today 1980's Songs were played:
3:18 PM Rick Astley - Never Gonna Give You Up
3:48 PM Culture Club - Karma Chameleon
4:18 PM Simple Minds - Don't You (Forget About Me)
4:48 PM a-ha - Take On Me
5:18 PM The Bangles - Walk Like an Egyptian
5:48 PM The Proclaimers - I'm Gonna Be (500 Miles)
6:18 PM Kenny Loggins - Footloose
6:48 PM Whitney Houston - I Wanna Dance With Somebody
7:18 PM Devo - Whip It
7:48 PM REO Speedwagon - Take It On The Run
(emphasis added)

They actually played that?  I was just joking...

I don't see any reason why you can't. How do you get Weather Nation without cable?
Also, some over-the-air stations carry WeatherNation on a digital subchannel.

I bet your climate would also not also be good for a common cold which I currently have imp. Turns out that my sore throat has developed into a common cold for which now I have chest congestion along with a runny nose and the occasional fever imp. I sure hope that I get well soon imp.
Sore throat is usually the first symptom of a cold for me in my pants.  :-/

... For example, they don't detail tomorrow's forecast... just today and tonight ...
