WNCN switched back to the main antenna this afternoon at 1:20 PM. We tried to switch yesterday and overnight, but the rain never let up. Thanks for all the feedback. The most surprising thing we learned is of the viewers that called or emailed us, 100% of antennas in the attic lost us completely. Indoor antennas were able to get the weaker signal just fine after adjusting the antenna. Makes little sense, but that's science. Go Figure!
No dice on any channels this evening. I used to tune in 17.2 once in a while to watch antenna tv, but I don't have to do that anymore. I don't even try to watch Triangle channels much anymore, since I get so many channels already. I have better luck with Charleston SC than Raleigh.
Does anyone happen to know why FOX50 still has to drop to SD when they run a ticker? I thought FOX Network actually designed their HD delivery to allow local affiliates to run tickers/bugs/etc right on top of the HD feed without having to drop to SD. Sorry if this has been covered before, I know its been going on for at least a year...

Just to revive this somnolent forum...
Don't know, but they just did it again during a basketball game today, so their problem persists. It's really ugly, bad enough that I just turned off the TV and walked away. I wonder if that's really the effect they're after?
FYI - Couple days ago - Dish and Capital Broadcasting starting a retransmission dispute. The net result of this is that Capitol Broadcasting stations are currently off Dish (WRAL, WRAZ and WILM in Wilmington)
Well there you have it. ABC O&O stations will be adding LAFF comedy network in the place of the LiveWell SD channel. Looks like they're going to keep the LiveWell HD channel at least for the time being. WTVD is an owned and operated ABC/Disney station.
