Now that Sinclair has annonced that GET TV will find a home on their KVMY 21.3, how much longer will KVVU hold out without a diginet partner of their own on their 5.3?

What will KTNV do with their soon to be vacant 13.3, after Live Well folds nationally. Will KTNV ever do something with their 13.2, other than simulcast the HD signal in SD? A recent e-mail to KTNV went unanswered asking whether they would hold onto Live Well until the final hours of the network scheduled for mid January 2015. They could drop Live Well at anytme and replace it with one, or two, diginets. Bounce could reposition to 13.2 from KGNG 47.3, while Soul Of The South could fill 13.3.

Will Entravision's KINC powerup a 15.3 before years' end? Will they add one or two subs to their KELV-27? Perhaps the soon to launch Grit and Escape networks from Katz Television will find a Vegas home with them.

It might be difficult to convince non-profit KLVX to add a fourth sub-channel, as they are using the bandwidth well with quality sub-channels and data-casting. However, someone here needs to add First Nation Experience with programming for and about Native Americans. That diginet prefers PBS affiliates over other broadcasters.

I've given up that scruffy Cranston's KMCC will ever add the announced Weather Nation service to their 34.3. But that company needs something on their bandwidth in the 34.3 position. The Works, a new movies network, now in a few markets, could be a nice fit for Cranston and Vegas viewers.

Late Saturday afternoon, KGNG-47 has lost the psip's and programming to their 47.1 HSN, 47.2 Aviva, and 47.8 Hotel TV aka Walk.

They were quickly restored.

At 10 am Tuesday, KVMY lit the fuse on their 21.3 sub-channel. By noon all the technical issues seemed to be resolved, and GET TV, from Sony, hit the airwaves. My calculations are that Las Vegas now has 64 sub-channels from 21 stations. Of these, 44 are English, while 16 are Hispanic, 2 are always useful color bars, and 2 are not so useful "for lease" billboards.

Anomoly or new normal? On Saturday The Cool was missing from KMCC 34.2, In fact 34.2 was missing. Entering the rf of 32.2 was of no help. "Scrambled" or "Scrambled Video" appears on my screen. What gives Cranston?

For most of Saturday KGNG was below the cliff at my NW Vegas condo, meaning no or spotty reception.. Usually King Kong's KGNG signal level is not a problem for me. During a brief window of reception this early evening, I noticed that AVIVA is missing from KGNG 47.2. It's been replaced by locally provided episodes of Clutch Cargo cartoons with a sporadic KGNG logo bug.

Monday mortning brings more ota issues for Las Vegas. World Harvest Television on KEEN 17.1 is missing. Aviva on KGNG 47.2 remains missing, being replaced by a variety of programming that seems to be generated by a local server. Further the KGNG signal level at my condo is nearly half of what has been their normal. My living room LG refused to recognize KGNG, while my dvr doesn't seem to have a problem with their 47 level. Entering their rf 48 to coax a 47 display doesn't help on this issue.

World Harvest Television was restore by early afternoon to KEEN 17.1 today. The Cool on KMCC 34.2 and Aviva on KGNG 47.2 remain lost in space.

I'm told that AVIVA is having satellite problems, but should return at some point to KGNG 47.2. Until their return expect to see lots of public domain cartoons.

KHMP-18 is producing a strong signal this Thursday evening, but lacking programming on their four sub-channels. Might this be a STL power failure due to the spotty rain in the area?

Meanwhile, AVIVA remains lost on KGNG 47.2, and The Cool hasn't been sighted on KMCC 34.2 in several days. KGNG-47 is producing a signal level in the mid 40's at my home, insufficient to drive my living room LG tv. That's half what it was last week.

KHDF 19.2, 19.3, and 19.4 is stuck on the computer starter menu screen.

Staff at KMCC reports that they are experiencing transmitter issues and hop to have a remedy soon, restoring The Cool network to 34.2.

Seriously now, where are the engineers and technical persons at our area stations?

KINC 15.2 LATV and KGNG 47.7 PBJ are missing this afternoon. That's in addition to the four sub-channels of KHMP-18, and KMCC 34.2 Cool. KHDF 19.2, 19.3, and 19.4. are still stuck on the menu graphic. Aviva is still being temporarily replaced by cartoons and informercials on KGNG 47.2. Sin City Sinema, or Cinema Six (both unofficial terms), continues in place of Family on KGNG 47.6. I've yet to see the signal level of KGNG get about 47 at my home. That's about half of their normal for me, and insufficient to power the main LG tv.

KNBX 31.4 Hot continues to cough, burb, and hiccup their way through the program schedule. Many shows are freezing up numerous times during their half hour, not allowing the program to complete before the next series starts.

LATV returned to KINC 15.2 by Sunday morning.

By late Sunday morning, the four sub-channels reassembled themselves as tv broadcasters, and not just blank PSIP's. But all is not well, yet. Each of the subs frequently lose signal then restore themselves for short periods of time. This is not a reception issues, but a transmission issue.

Problems on Mt Potosi for KHMP. Their signal on the four sub-channels of digital channel 18 has been spotty, at best all week. KHMP staff are working on a fix, but no remedy as yet.

On the 18th of August, just one month from today, two new diginets, Escape and Grit, will launch on many stations nationwide, including Univision O&O's. Escape will target women, while Grit will target men. Will Las Vegas be in on the initial launch? No official word has come down from any local station as of yet.

KINC-15, Entravision, could move LATV from their 15.2 over to little sister KELV 27.2. This would allow room for KINC to place one of the new networks on the vacated 15.2, while the other new network could occupy a new 15.3 sub position. Of course, Entravision could place both new networks on KELV on new 27.2 and 27.3, but this would mean less than full market covereage. Yet another possibility is that Journal's KTNV could drop their ABC SD feed on 13.2 and replace it with a new network, while also dropping the soon to die Live Well Network from 13.3 for the other new network. But that seems like a very long shot.

KVVU 5.3 could be a dark horse entry. Then there's always a possible KMCC 34.3. Maybe that's why their 34.2 is now scrambled.

After exhausting all of the above possibilities, Las Vegas has plenty of potential for new subs on our many under utilized LPTV stations; like KEEN-17, KHMP-18, KHDF-19, KLVD-23, KTUD-25 (current CP rebirth), KVPX-28, KEGS-30, KNBX-31, KVTE-35 (current CP), KGHD-6/38 (current CP), K41IO-41, and KLSV-50.

Sunday afternoon, today, at 1:10pm, KMCC seems to be working on their facilities. The Cool has been restored to their 34.2 sub-channel. However, it also shows up on a rescan on 34.3. Mundo Fox remains on 34.1. Could the .3 sub-channel be permanent with The Cool as a placeholder?

About 11 am on Monday, programming disappeared from all three sub-channels of KMCC.

It's unknown at this time for how long, but MiCasa network is now airing on KGNG 47.2. This may be temporary until such time as Aviva is restored on that same sub-channel. The sub-channel is really bit-starved.

Just prior to noon today, Thursday, Mako appeared to be tinkering with their KEGS-LD 30.1. The color bars disappeared, then returned. Also, the psip is now labeled "KEGS-LD 30.1". Might they be getting ready for a launch of something?

All remains quiet for Cranston on ther KMCC 34. No service from Mundo Fox on 34.1, The Cool on 34.2, or the The Cool simulcast on 34.3.

Mid Saturday morning, Cranston restored their three sub-channels to 34.1.

PBJ, KGNG 47.7, is out sick. And PBJ is back.

Wednesday mid-morning is seeing a very unreliable signal level coming from the four subs of KHMP-18. The normal stable signal from KHMP is slewing wildly up and down the scale today, casuing my tv to be unable to display the images for more than a couple of seconds at a time.

August watch

Several changes could occur during the month of August for Las Vegas over-the-air viewers. I'm keeping an eye on KVVU 5.2 and 5.3, KINC 15.2 and 15.3, KELV 27.2 and 27.3, KEGS 30.1, and KMCC 34.2 and 34.3. No announcements yet, but these are sub-channels that could see new diginets this coming month. Let's not forget the pending rebirth of KTUD-25, the digital launch of KVTE-35, and the digital launch of KGHD-38.

KHMP-18 and KMCC-34 are both missing Wednesday morning at 9 am. That's 7 sub-channels down.

KHMP is actually broadcasting a signal, but the levels swing wildly from the 70's to zero every few seconds for me.

By 8:30 am Tuesday morning, the three channels of KMCC were back with their normal programmig. Let the countdown begin for the next transmitter outtage.

KLSV 50.1 has also rematerialized from the beyond and resumed programming.

KHMP-18 continues to be plagued with transmitter issues, or something. My secret decoder ring converter box today shows a very reliable signal level of 57% and 100% signal quality, yet the station is not pumping out any programming.

It was about 10 days ago that some parts of Las Vegas experienced a power flucuation just longer enough to screw up the clocks on numerous devices, including our tv monitors. I reset my devices soon after the brief power flicker. However, it appears that several broadcast tv stations in the Valley have not yet reset their PSIP time. Usually reliable KINC-15 has the wrong time set, preventing correct program data from being displayed. Several others are in the same situation, including KMCC-34.

Cranston's KMCC added their third sub-channel, 34.3, not long ago. It airs a simulcast of The Cool, also seen on KMCC 34.2. Is the 34.3 a place holder for something to launch soon. Maybe so. The program data for 34.3 shows Weather Nation programs. That network has been indicated to be aired by KMCC for nearly 2 years, with no movement seen by Cranston. The fact that Weather Nation program data displayed on 34.3 suggests reams of speculation that Weather Nation may finally arrive in Las Vegas.

47-7 PBJ pixellating like crazy now, and why is the volume to the max on this channel?
Are they just playing games with these channels are are they going to be serious with the quality?

I noticed this also, but put off posting, hoping it would all be fixed. King Kong Broadcasting has had reception problems from Lucken for both Retro and PBJ since they switched dishes months ago. One problem gets fixed, and another pops up, it seems.

If your volume knob is maxed for 47.7, then where is it for KNBX 31.4?

Fierce thunderstorms rolled through the Boulder City area around noon. This may account for the disappearance of KMCC, and their 3 channels, at about 12:36. About the same time KVMY lost programming on GET 21.3, while their 21.1 and 21.2 remained on-air. KGNG 47.4 and 47.7 continue to spit, cough, and hiccup this afternoon, while the remainer of their channels seem acceptable. Elsewhere, KHMP is all silent on their four sub-channels on digital 18. The trans is running, but no proigramming is being sent. What happened to the days when a master control room had a Norad alerm that blasted out whenever something abnormal occurred? What happened to the red hotline phone on the master control room wall that only connected to the station owner? Unattended operation is not working for the viewers.

After five days of unexcused absence, KMCC-34 is back. Cranston must have sprung for a new 9 volt battery to power-up their trans. Programming returns to usual on their 3 channels, which includes The Cool in two positions.

Elsewhere, KHMP remains mostly quiet. Their trans is running, but no programming is reaching the transmitter site to be forwarded to their viewers. That leaves four Las Vegas sub-channels down for the count, maybe.

Did either station, KMCC and/or KHMP, bother to file a STA with the FCC over their several absences this August? Are FCC rules and regs now a thing of the past?

New diginets Grit and Escape launched yesterday on numerous affiliates areound the country. But alas, Las Vegas was not in that initial bevy of affiliates. I'd expect we'll see the networks here before too long. Entravison, through their association with Univision O&O's were a launch group. Locally, KELV and KINC is Entravision, but they made no deals with either network. Some unhappy viewers are posting elsewhere on the internet that both networks are sending out their movies in the stetch-o-vision format.

Very recently, the engineer for KNBX-31 has renamed the PSIP's for each of the 4 sub-channels of that station to more accurately reflect the content. 31.1 is KNBX-CD; 31.2 is KEEN TV (the programming originates from KEEN and also appears on KGNG 47.8; 31.3 is ShopNow for the Hispanic infomercials; and 31.4 is back to HOT. Also of note is the nifty new HOT network ID graphic restoring reference to HOT (History Of Television). Las Vegas is only one of four markets capable of receiving likeable ota diginet HOT. Now, if we could only convince the KNBX engineer to include the program data within the PSIP of each sub-channel.

Two PSIP mysteries continue in Las Vegas. KLSV 50.1 still ID's as "LATV Feed", while KMCC 34.3 ID's as KMCC but with Weather Nation program data. Hmmm!


By early Friday afternoon, KMCC-34 was once again powered down, taking their three channels quiet. They have rejoined KHMP-18 and their four channels on the bench.

Wanting a strong FCC to say no to the Wireless lobby. Keep the tv broadcast band for ota television broadcasters.

KHMP-LD has requested Silent Special Temporary Authorization, citing equipment failure on or about August 1st, so it will be a bit of time before they're up and running again.

ION, on KBLR 39.3, was quite terrible this afternoon. Pixelation everywhere. That's not like KBLR. Their 39.1 Telemundo programming looked like a music awards show, so that may have been robbing the two sub-channels of needed bandwidth more than usual.

For those that have been suffering with Retro and PBJ poor satellite quality issues, help may be on the way. Luken, the provider of both Retro and PBJ, is reported to be installing better and more powerful uplink equipment. When in place, this should cure the poor signal being received by numerous Retro and PBJ affiliates across the country, including or local KGNG -47.

Hope they fix Retro and PBJ soon, better or the rest of the King Kong channels.

As the end of August draws near, there is a slight chance, a very slight chance, that Cranston could throw the switch on KMCC 34.3 and launch Weather Nation programming. Yeah, the network announced 2 yerars ago that KMCC was an affiliate, yet no programming flowed. Just maybe the Moon and stars are in perfect harmony for this launch to finally happen. I'm a skeptic, but 34.3 did start carrying Weather Nation program data within the sub-channels' PSIP several weeks ago. Anything would be better than the current simulcast of The Cool from the KMCC 34.2.

The satellite delivery iisues of Retro and PBJ for KGNG may have been cured. I've not spotted problems that last several days. Further, the signal of Bounce this afternoon on KGNG 47.3, unaffected by the Lucken satellite, looked quite good, considering the low bit rate assigned to the sub-channel. But the signal of MiCasa on KGNG 47.2 suffers from a low rate on the incoming source to the station.

Because of late afternoon football on KLAS 8.1, that station moved the CBS News, an East Coast feed no doubt, over to 8.2 bumping a half hour of METV programming.

KSNV hiccuped yesterday afternoon (Thursday). Service to their 3.1 and 3.3 were interrupted for a few minutes. During that brief outtage, COZI continued on 3.2 unaffected.

PBJ still looks worse than watching stations from Mt.Sutro from San Jose with rabbit ears
