Here are my concepts of what the local weather ID on the LDL and the TWC station ID would look like with the current graphics if they were brought back today. All STAR ID numbers shown below are of course made up. :P

Station ID

IntelliSTAR 2 XD

IntelliSTAR 2 Jr

Local Weather ID

IntelliSTAR 2 XD

IntelliSTAR 2 Jr

Given luesjo12's assessments about the map product still using the old Akko font rather than the current Roboto font and also the maps being removed this morning, I guess TWC didn't intend on using said product and it was likely just glitching. Or, TWC could have been testing out the maps and they plan on updating it with Roboto in the future, perhaps even roll it out to the IS2 Jrs as well. Guess we'll just have to wait and see what happens next.  :dunno:

Checked the Astoria IS2 Jr again and we still do not have the map product as of this morning. I wonder if the map is exclusive to the IS2 HDs and XDs, or if any other Jrs out there have it as well.  :unsure:

Haven't seen the new map product on the Astoria IS2 Jr yet. I've looked all day and still no sign of it on my end. :dunno:

Brought my custom-made WxSTAR Jr emulator back from underneath the daisies and posted this emulation on my YT today.  :happy:

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.
