Yes, MiCasa 47.2 and PBJ 47.6 seem to be down for the day.
Trip knows better than to hang out with us, a couple years ago he did, Larry and Lisa from KGNG and me, keep him out till 4am and he had meeting the next morning! Trip here is your personal invite to join out group, Wednesday April 20th 2016 at the NAB for dinner, place TBA.

A normal Day in Vegas at least one or more channel are down.

Thnaks for that info. I had checked just slightly earlier and didn't see the addition. What we need to check now is, does KVVU have the corect aspect ratio for Escape programming. That has been an issue on some Escape affiliates.

Another weekend past with plenty of Sinclair's ASN sports pre-empting GET TV on KSNV 3.3. When will Sinclair set my classic movie channel free?

I understand your frustration with sports pre-empting the programming on GET TV but, in all honesty, I really don't see what the big deal is in terms of this particular channel. The movies they show are repeated, ad nauseam, over and over again for the entire month. What they're showing, during the pre-emts, could have been seen three or four times, before, in the past week. Now if these pre-empts were on channels like Antenna TV, This TV, or Cozi, it would be much more frustrating.

Your point is well taken. But I believe that ASN needs to step up and set aside a fulltime channel dedicated to ASN sports, whether it airs programming 24/7 or not. This may not be feasible nationwide, but it certainly is possible in Vegas. KVMY is a bit waster, and could easily suppoprt another sub-channel for ASN.

The subchannels seem like they are operated by third world countries, PQ issues, blackouts, aspect ratio variances, sports preempting, sound/lip sync (esp Cozi TV).

The owners must not be Americans.

Have you noticed that the PSIP's of KHDF 19.2 is now "Lease1", and .2 is "Lease2", and .3 is "Lease3"? I'm holding back on the laughter, as only one of those three sub-channels have been leased in the 3-4 year history.

MiCasa is still in absense on KGNG 47.2. KNBX 31.5 is still shouting "FamCh", but no programming as yet. KEGS 30.5 is still dark, after Coyote FM's simulcast disappeared several weeks ago. Pixelation continues on KVMY 21.1 and 21.2 very frequently.
