I don't really trust my signal strength reading on the DVR+ but it does have it at 62% for KCOP while CBS, NBC, and KTLA are at 97 - 100%.
Ok thanks. .. sign ....

Just like the classics on Fox Movies! and a big Star Trek of all the series now running on H&I. And this sudden pixelization problem is making the channel almost unwatchable now ...

Crap ...

Say anyone;

Is KCOP 13-1 and 13-2 completely off the air now?

Only getting 13-3 and 13-4 now all of a sudden on most of the TVs I've checked here ...

Pixelation on hi-VHF stations

Well, after recording quite a few OTA programs on my DVR+ I am getting pixelation on the hi-VHF stations (7, 9, 11 and 13) with most of it on KTTV 11. Makes watching Fox shows a bit challenging. I'm in north Oxnard in Ventura County, near the border with Ventura. Here's my TV Fool link: http://www.tvfool.com/?option=com_wr...e2cb2ae42b12fc

I have a ChannelMaster Extremetenna 4228HD that has 5db gain on the high VHF band that is better than my older AntennasDirect DB8 with the VHF dipole add on, but it is still lacking. I'm going to build a folded dipole with a reflector for the mid part of the frequency range first and then test from low to high (174 to 216 mhz, so a folded dipole from 24" to 32" wide). IIRC when I did this before with a dipole I got pretty good reception.

Is there any inexpensive way to measure signal gain? I'll be using the signal strength meter on my DVR+ but I don't know how accurate it is.
