Also no audio on the LO8 at 1:47PM CT and went to the Emer. feed at 2:20PM CT
Did you happen to hear the audio on the EF. cause I was on the SD intellistar feed. The background music toward the end sounded a little jazzy.

I must say that I am now a fan of TWC because of the new graphics! I've been checking often every hour to see what's up. Everything is so concise and readable now. The studio is to die for...it's so picture perfect in HD.

Good going, TWC. You just brought back an old fan. :))

Anyone know how many different LOT8s backgrounds there are? They're all really nice.

The LDL & Sidebar has been glitchy more than anything else since the launch today. On the HD feed they just turned it off.

I notice these errors seem to happen most during transitions from either commercials to live programming or the LF to live programming etc. They're having a hard time scaling up/down the video feed so it doesn't overlap the LDL/Sidebar.

To me it's a bit dark and the studio could be a little brighter. Yes I know it's day one. Just an observation.

I actually like the full screen video. The wing on the right is not doing much for me and the forecast maps are better full screen.

One other thing I noticed is at the green screen the OMC's have a purple shadow on them. which used to happen before the studio remodel.
I wonder where it's coming from?

The new graphics look fantastic in HD, however I've mostly been watching in SD to see the changes to the IS. I would do the same for the IS2, but I haven't seen it in about a month and a half.

TWC's response on FB about the narration on the LOT8s,
The Weather Channel "Daniel - We're revamping the voice for local on the 8s to bring you more local information. It will be back soon."

The clock has turned black and green at the beginning of the local forecast for whatever reason...I would say that it was for nighttime but it wasn't like that early this morning.

I noticed that the music sounded rather quiet on the SD LF, and the basemap is still green. I heard buzzing on it too. Also, the background of the SD and HD LFs don't seem to match all the time. (I was watching them at the same time.) Speaking of which, just how many are there?

Does anyone notice that the the top part of the sidebar looks different now? It still has the same text, but the "you're watching" text is much smaller, and the rest of the text is arranged in the same way as the TWC logo. There is also a big sun icon peeking out from the right edge.

I really like these icons. They match the new look perfectly, and the animations are nice too.

The clock has that same color scheme on the sidebar when showing the sunset time.

So what exactly is the system generating the LF? Is it a brand new STAR? A new type of Intellistar?

What you're looking at is IntelliStar v3. The same computer is generating this that generated the IntelliStar graphics from 2004 and up. It was just a graphical update.

West coast viewers saw the dark clock this morning seeing that it was 1am when the update was rolled out.

For now, I'd say that "IS v3" should remain a fan name :P but this is beyond a graphical update, this is a whole new style.

On the bottom of the screen, I keep getting forecasts for New York City and Hartsdale (Westchester County). I'm on Long Island. I think I used to get the NYC and Islip forecasts, which made more sense.
Probably just FiOS. I have Cablevision in Suffolk County and it's Islip with forecasts for Islip, Port Jefferson, Amityville and East Hampton.
