I've been silent for a while so I could get some unprompted reaction on the steps taken to end the drop-outs. Obviously the steps taken worked. (You Dish locals subscribers - have the drop-outs stopped there too?) I've preformed a couple of other hidden 'experiments' too that don't seem to have had any impact. The drop-outs were caused by random bursts of PSIP program guide data. This seems to be resolved now.
Last week a Descriptive Video audio channel for the visually impaired was added. (This was an FCC requirement until a court last Friday said the FCC had no authority to require it, but it will stay pending further FCC or judical review.) This will impact older Panasonic tuners (DST-50/51) that will only get dual-mono audio with the descriptive audio or Spanish on 'Bold and Beautiful'. This is a problem in the tuner that was documented long ago. There is supposed to be a fix from Panasonic, but I don't have any details.
The recent broad reception problems are seasonal. As the leaves on the trees dry out, and it has been a dry Autumn up until now, their affect on reception changes. Now that the rains have come and they are very wet (reflections change again) until they finally fall off (when reflections disappear until Spring). Hang in there, once the leaves are gone things should settle down, but they could be different and require some antenna adjustments.
PAX (KPXG 22) will be DTV on channel 4 not 3. KWBP-LP analog repeater of WB32 will probably move from channel 4 to channel 5.
I think that brings things current.
