Our local station once again listed a 5-hour window for the Yule Log this year and I figured they'd mess it up the same way they did last year by transposing the third and fourth hours so I was somewhat bummed out by the thought.
Fortunately, we found out a short while ago that DishTV allows a la carte addition of certain channels to our basic package so we sprang for WPIX for an extra $2 a month. This allowed us to witness the 2012 edition of the Yule Log from the Mother Station which was awesome to say the least!!

Once again, kudos, applause, congrats, to Chip for the fourth hour; it is wonderful to have even more of this fine music and our favorite virtual roaring fire to warm our hearts on this special day.

Merry Christmas everyone!

Thank you Johnny,

Merry Christmas to you too.

It was hard taking the pictures of my TV screens because it doesn't do very well in low light or artificial light.  Then after I press the button, it takes about 2 seconds for it to actually take the picture and if I move, things get blurred.  Then, especially on my HDTV, I had the flash covered with my finger, but it still lets some of the flash through and it reflects in the TV.

I hope anyone else who was able to watch it on Antenna TV had better results than I did.  I wasn't expecting commercials and it not fitting the screen.  I did expect it to be in SD being the type of programming that Antenna TV normally shows, was done prior to HDTV and the programs were made in the 4:3 ratio.  WPIX and KWGN were also in SD but they filled the screen and I haven't completely watched KWGN's broadcast because it was on an hour earlier than WPIX in my area, I watched WPIX but did DVR all 3  of them and WPIX went off without a hitch.

Though I can stretch the image to fit the 16:9 ratio it is still SD, but it looks like it's HD so that is all that matters.

Jeff,

I don't know what your local station was, but I had been checking my program guide and for KWGN, they showed Christmas Eve Day a 1-hour broadcast of The Yule Log, then because I am in the Eastern Time Zone, they showed an hour again of The Yule Log and then the 4-hour broadcast.  I asked Chip about it in another thread he had contacted them and explained that the 4-hour broadcast would start with hour 2 then 3 and 4 and finally hour 1 and the 1 hour that was listed before was supposed to be hour 1 but because I wanted the 4-hour broadcast, I haven't watched it yet, but it is supposed to be 2, 3, 4, 1.  But being I haven't watched it yet, except for the first few minutes, I don't know how it turned out.

Here is the link to the thread.  Scroll down to post # 18 and he explains it, but in my guide, instead of it being hours 2, 3 and 4 and then a separate hour 1, my guide had it listed as 4 hours so that is how I DVR'd it.  Not counting the repeated hour 1,  before the 4 hours.

Chip,

I hope this isn't considered Double Posting as I was responding to  Johnny's post, and after I had sent it, I saw the message from Jeff so I wanted to respond to his message and didn't even see Jeff's post until I answered Johnny's post.

Chip,
Just want you to know how much i appreciate your efforts on the Yule Log.  Ever since I discovered your site, my family and I have enjoyed watching it each year on WGN as we unwrapped our presents on Christmas morning. Last year I was unable to tune in because we don't get Antenna TV in my area.  I can only pick it up from Raleigh when the weather is good. I can understand your frustration with all the problems that Antenna TV has had in broadcasting the complete program.  Just wanted to mention a solution that i came up with to watch the program. This year I was able to see it via WPIX's live streaming on the web.  i was even able to watch it on my TV via my Apple TV mirroring from my laptop.  To be specific, I have an Apple TV 2 and used AirParrot ( a program I got from the web) to mirror it from my Macbook.  The newer MacBooks have the "mirroring feature through the Apple TV" built in.  I made sure to try it out before hand on WPIX's live streaming of the Saint Patrick's Midnight Mass the night before. It worked like a charm. I did notice the abrupt end to the last song.  I really enjoyed your picks for the fourth hour. Some of the music I have never heard before so I'm going to check your song list to see what those selections were. Anyway, MERRY CHRISTMAS AND A HAPPY NEW YEAR TO YOU.  Thanks for all your hard work and HERE'S TO NEXT YEAR!

Chip, Susan & the group:

I finally got a chance to view THE Yule Log = what a great masterpiece.
The story behind the show was fantastic as well.
Long-live the Yule Log.

Happy New Year,
John
