    * Cartoon Network's West Coast Feed...

    This was brought to my attention by an Admin on Webchat.org...

    It appears that someone has either taken control of Cartoon Network's west coast feed or someone within their control room is about to fired. We know it is definetely affecting Adelphia on the West Coast although they claim it's nation-wide.

    Who else is getting this? Anyone? Also, what is your location and what provider?

    Oh I should probably include the screenshot... This has been up for more than an hour!

    Just got an update;

    "A call was placed to the TimeWarner/CNN Master Control in Atlanta - they had one call about it, and they say that their control room people aren't seeing it...that would lead to the Satellite"

    This could get nasty...

    Well darn, I was getting all excited too. Must be localized to one provider then, unless someone else is seeing this too?

    Well, I just submitted an article to /. on this - we'll see if RobM is in a good mood tonight.

    I called TimeWarner/CNN's Master Control Room, and they said that only one other person had called to complain about it, and that their engineers are seeing nothing out of the ordinary.

    To have that feed localized to only one other cable system (that we know of) is highly unusual. Adelphia is aware of the problem, and they indicated that it is on their *incoming* feed for CartoonNetwork.

    It's now 9:22PM PST, and this has been going since around 7:30PM PST.

    Called Adelphia support, and the guy said theyve gotten some calls and have no idea control/idea whats going on, but he ushered me to call:
    1-404-827-1717 <Cartoon Netwokr Operator or something.
    I called, asked what was going on and she said Atlanta is not receiving this problem nor are the people in the control room, therefore the problem is between wherever they feed off to and us.
