So quick question - why is there local weather on the SD version but not the HD version? That's just strange. I searched on the board and found a question on this over a year old, and I find it hard that they haven't found a solution in all this time, especially with the new upgrades. How would you get local weather warnings on the HD feed?

Weather channel uses a specialized computer called IntelliStar at each of the cable company's local head end to overlay graphics when the "Weather on the 8's" comes up. There is currently a HD version out, but it is still being tested in select markets. Here's the wikipedia link if you want to read more about it...

your answer could not be more wrong. hd content is identical to sd content except the local forecast which someone else explained is provided by intellistar computer.
The Weather Channel does not provide a region's local forecast on its HD channel.
Why, I do not know.
