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.

NOW: my post on AVS Forum.
NEXT: someone else's post on AVS Forum.

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.
