I also don't like the shields on the radar or state routes (white boxes). Looks too ugly. But the concept as a whole isn't half bad. The ad crawl works fine for me as well.

I think my SD IS is still installing.  It's coasting right past the hourly forecast, ending a few seconds early, getting a few seconds of the national LOT8s, and then a bit of blue or black screen before video comes back.

Hope that new map pack comes soon, using the old maps with that black font doesn't work at all.

when the local forecast first started local, the radar map was a dark puke green, with the black font, then on the next one it was the normal map with black font, im guessing it just takes a while to load. these maps they're using on weather center live are great, but you can't read the font at all on SD, i wish they would just letter box rather than zoom to SD.

the lot8s keep buzzing at the same spot each time lol. also noticed during the now screen the temperature actually changed while it was up. went from 54 to 53. i thought it was pretty cool

yeah the font was weird, and i only got black video for the commercials after LOT8s

i really like the intros to the LOT8s, pretty clever..

and did anyone notice we have intrumental LOT8s back?!

Yeah i noticed it & it sounded pretty good i like it so far.

Weather alert scroll! There is a major problem however that someone that has connections may want to report. Even though the scroll is labeled as Wind Advisory in red, it scrolls all of the alerts that are in effect without changing the label (we are under a Wind Advisory and and Hard Freeze Watch, both scroll but label stays as Wind Advisory).

Maybe it's just me...but, I feel like in watching live weather coverage more now. If just feels like they're not at commercial as much. Yes, the pace is quick, but it feels like a lot more live, and a lot less commercial.

1 more quick question.

Is it just "temporary" that the local on 8's play's this 1 single song repeatedly over and over again ??

Too early to tell. So far, it would appear that it's this one piece, and that's it. We won't really know until tonight at the earliest.

oh okay, alright then.
Im actually happy  that there isnt automated voice-overs anymore. I never liked that really over these past several years, where the computer voice talks over every single screen almost completely blocking out most of the music usually.
