AUSTIN, Texas -- No one knows exactly how many viewers were tuned in early Monday to "Infosex," a cable-access program on Austin Community Television (ACTV).But plenty of people here are talking about what happened, live and in graphic detail, on the show that purports to examine the issues of gay life and safe sex.Two men, using condoms, engaged in oral sex during the two-hour telecast, which began at midnight. That was followed by scenes of a man masturbating and other sexual acts between men. Now, local radio talk shows are featuring angry debates about the episode, television news programs are showing heavily edited images of the participants and a Travis County grand jury is investigating whether obscenity laws were broken.

Howard Community College's television station has received two regional Emmy nominations for pieces that combine creative vision with cutting-edge technology. The nominated public service announcement and station identification spots were made using "green-screen" technology to incorporate computerized backgrounds, animation and graphics. The addition of that capability a couple of years ago has widely expanded the station's ability to produce slick-looking advertisements, announcements and original programs, said Margaret Kahlor, director of media arts, the TV studio and HCC-TV.
