    Raymie, I'm not sure about any of it. Honestly, I think Tehuacan was already on, but I could be wrong. I saw some odd crawling
    IDs back in 1994-1995 mentioning two cities, and that may have been one of those.

    That would have been when they were setting up the network. Keep in mind too that I don't think Mexican stations had to have the city in their IDs until the late 90s/early 2000s. Most equipment couldn't insert more than 8 characters. Televisa's "16x4" setup that they rolled out after 2000 allowed them to add cities and whatnot to their IDs.

    One thing I saw that I failed to mention about XEW-2, during a commercial break, between ads there was a full screen view of the Televisa logo(stayed maybe 3-4 seconds). First time I'd seen it like this, it was like I said, full screen and sort of silvery-transparent. Unfortunately, I wasn't ready with my camera. Would have made an interesting photo.

    After tinkering with my iphone's replay settiings on the original video, I'm able to play back literally frame-by-frame, which allowed me to see a little better...what Raymie could see from the beginning.

    Good job, Mike.

    They must have just started using that ID lately.

    I'll comment about XEW-2 and XHTV-4 later.

    Let me assure anyone here who does not often receive Mexico TV, Mike has IDed this station honestly. Since the mid-1990s,
    it has been impossble to ID the real XEW by seeing on-air ID material. There has been no ID material. Call letters (yes, XEW
    used calls on promos until several years ago), phone numbers, and addresses on ads have meant nothing on that station.

    It's funny what a little telecommunications reform can do, isn't it? XEW running its own IDs. We thought the day would never come.

    11 months ago I actually had an item on this, complete with a link to what it looked like, and at the time I noted, "These are only running in Mexico City, which may make identifying the real XEW-2 possible!, but they are small."

    This is its TDT cousin: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6NQ__6fQwGM

    XHGC-TDT 50 and XEQ-TDT 44 also have their own ID styles, and the analogs likely have matching IDs.

    Raymie, sometimes government regulation is useful.

    Mike, that frame-by-frame feature is very useful.

    I posted the XHTV-4 text ID photo from August to Raymie's blog a few months back. Unfortunately, that ID was on XHP-3.
    Why that ID was on the satellite feed to other stations is a mystery to me. That was some kind of mistake. So Mike, be
    thankful your ID was on channel 2.

    This thread has drifted from a DX report to a discussion of text IDs on XEW and XHTV, so my next post on this subject (later
    today or another day) will be in the Latin America section.

    I don't think that was a mystery: ForoTV is not designed to be a national network, and there is no national feed for ForoTV (only XHTV-4 that even cable carriers get directly from satellite), so Televisa channels (owned or affiliated) must get XHTV-4 directly.
