It was on eBay about six months ago or so.  So glad it's made it to a good home!  My YouTube channel has several videos of both the v2 and v3.  This unit also has the current version on it as well.

Fun fact: this unit was installed after DST Spring 2006 - the first that Indiana observed.  The XL it replaced couldn't do the new DST change apparently.

Figured it's worth mentioning, yesterday was the 10 year anniversary of the debut of the "v2 IntelliStar." Time sure does fly...
This is the first video of the v2 iStar, from when mine was a beta.  October 9, 2007.  Includes the last v1, Evening Edition (After Dark), and the first v2.

Do not be surprised if this leads TWC to go from a cable distribution to a digital subchannel.

FWIW I did hear Smooth Jazz one day this week in the morning, so it's not all lost.

Personally I think it now sounds out-of-place.

I can't believe that y'all jumped right over the fact they are playing smooth jazz with it.

Those with Comcast/Xfinity headends please post if you get the HD Local when your SD Star changes, please.
Heh, I now have the HD Local.  Looks even better in HD to be honest.

So I have an interesting conundrum.

IStar 26820 is gone.  The SD channel is now letterboxed widescreen with the L-bar (literally useless information) and the Locals with Jim C.'s voice.  Great!

The HD channel still has no local.  What gives (and please don't say IStar 2 Jr or whatever that is)?
This was talked about a few pages back, but your headend probably has an IntelliStar 2 XD hooked up. It's a newer-model IS2 that is capable of sending out both an HD and SD signal and aesthetically has subtle differences from the original IS2.
So....is it a flaw or a feature it's not doing locals in HD?  Maybe I need to post one floor down (if the STAR Team still floats around here).

Apologies in advance for asking questions...been a while since I've been around.

(So much wasted space on the widescreen Locals.)

Last I knew good ol' 26820 was still in service...with no IS2.
