My first XL sighting! :thrilled:
Greetings from Pipestem State Park in WV!

I'll make sure to upload a video later. I can't right now, cause the wifi here is too slow.

First time I've been getting the generic "This is your weather" on my IS.  Then again, we're in tornado watch and severe thunderstorm warning for the first time since WATT began.

Also, my basemaps are now the correct color.  Finally.  :P
Took long enough. :P Mine didn't convert until near the end of last month.

Something weird happened on the last LF on my IS2. At the end of the LF, after the summary page, it went right back to the first page of the 24-hour forecast. The rundown bar at the bottom of the screen has the summary icon, but no text next to it. After that, the graphics overlapped with the satellite LF for a split second, then rather than the "window" sliding up until it disappeared, it slid to the left and out of the screen.

Has anyone ever seen this happen?

EDIT: Here's a video of the error. It's not the exact same LF, but it does show what I'm talking about.

Looks like TWC finally got rid of the random jokes on the IS welcome screen as of today.

Anybody else seeing "This is your weather" on their IS?
Is there a weather alert in effect for your area? If so, that's what you'll see instead of a joke.

Edit: Now that I've taken another look at it, I don't remember that message having a period before.

Now they added an annoying countdown clock to the upper right of the screen.
They also keep complaining about DTV possibly dropping them going to every break.
I'm waiting for them to add it as a slide on the LOT8s.
Here's the graphic.

9:08 CT: OKC IS2 was overlaid on top of the satellite feed.  Will need to check again to see if this was a one-time thing or not.  Has anyone else been having this issue recently?
I've seen that a few times on my IS2.

I do not want to be out on Monday at all. The high that day is just -9░, and the low Sunday night and Monday night is predicted between -10░ and -15░. Wind chills will reach -50░!

Now that I think about it, this is the first time the IS LF has ever matched the current on-air look. I specifically say LF, since I'm aware the 2008 LDL matched the on-air look at the time.

Does anyone else think the emergency LF is kind of a downgrade? The transitions look really bare-bones. The look itself does too, but that part I don't mind, since it matches the current graphics, which I really like. It's just the transitions that make it look pretty basic.

Does anyone else's SD IS still have green basemaps and buzzing on the 7-day and summary screens?

On the Xfinity Chicago SD IntelliStar (21813), the basemap is still green, and there is still buzzing on the 7-day forecast.
