I take it Koin is still having issues as I am still getting pixelated & dropouts and haven't changed a damn thing. Should have checked here before I guess.

The signal from KOIN is still really bad, and my email to their engineering staff resulted in nothing but the sound of crickets.

I also had an HDHR3 that just couldn't deal with what this station is pumping out, but was hearing good things about the new tuner chip in their Generation 4 devices. I'm happy to report that the new HDHR4 is able to deal with the KOIN signal, and is showing a steady 100%/85%/100%. The previous HDHR3 unit showed a consistent 100% for Signal Strength, but the Signal Quality bounced around < 50% > and the Symbol Quality constantly dropped to 0.

Since the engineering staff at KOIN appears to think their current signal is just fine, those with older HDHomeRun tuners may want to consider upgrading to a newer unit.

Interesting news. I am sure I have an older model HDHR but not sure which one.

Wait Newegg tells me this - HDHR3-US HD.

So maybe I will wait and do some more testing as I have that plus a tuner card in my main PC.

Thanks for the heads up though!

KOIN Fixed? Came back from a trip and noted KOIN is again back in high 90's signal power on my Toshiba Regza TV. It had been down in the 60's/low 70's like the low power 17-2/27-2 stations when I posted this summer.

Anybody else notice?

When are the couple new networks mentioned gonna be on the air?

KOIN is slightly better at my location, up to 80 from the low 70's.

I get plenty of signal from KOIN, but it sure seems to break up and freeze quite a bit. It's the worse channel by far.

I hope Comcast will add it to my lineup soon. While I am not into westerns, I noticed some non-western action/adventure movies that I would likely watch if the channel were available to me.

My very humble setup:
Man Cave:Vizio E500i-A1 "Smart TV" (50-in 1080p 120Hz LED/LCD, has Netflix app.), Sony BDP-S3100 Blu-ray player, Roku N1000 (original model), PC (Windows 7), Comcast Internet (110Mbps/12Mbps).
Bedroom:LG 32LV3400-UA TV (32-in 768p 60Hz LED/LCD), HD DVR (Motorola RNG200N), Xfinity Comcast cable (Digital Preferred Plus), DVD/VHS player.

disregard what he is saying. He is living in "mythical land" that any current Sinclair duopoly will be nuked.

Apparently he feels the need to poison each market with a Sinclair station with that crap (folks seem to do that at radiodiscussions)

I have no idea what this sentence is supposed to mean. Something about Sinclair having mythical nuclear weapons?

Apparently some people have this imagination about what stations should do with their programming or who they should sell to

mvcg66b3r apparently thinks that EVERY Sincalir duopoly should be abandoned and that they should cram as much crap onto one RF station (hence the same crap posted in the last 10 threads) even though there is nothing that says right now that the FCC is forcing companies to get rid of duopolies. They are cracking down on NEW duopolies

You're confusing yourself. Reread the quote

Basically he is living in mythical land where Sinclair should sell one of the stations they own (or run) in a duopoly market and cram everything onto one RF station.

No, the word "abandoned" implies that someone is "protecting" Sinclair stations at this point. I don't know of anyone protecting them from danger.

Obviously the other station would be affiliated with a network.

The posts I made here and on other threads are just pure speculation on just what might happen in these markets, with the FCC's crackdown on JSAs/SSAs and the impending incentive auction. Some of you may have been offended, and for that I apologize.
