Try studying up on QAM channels. They can come, go and change frequently.

Here's a new twist to the chaos.

I was watching the end of the Eagles vs. 49ers game on Fox HD. I had The Simpsons, Brooklyn Nine-Nine, and the one-hour Family Guy (because it was going to be a Simpsons special) set to record. I stayed on the channel and watched the Simpsons episode along with the Brooklyn Nine-Nine episode, but then stopped playback because I planned to watch the recorded Family Guy episode tomorrow. When I checked the recording of Family Guy, the channel reverted back to "this TV". I wanted to see what the channel looked like when it made the switch so I went to my Brooklyn Nine-Nine recording and that entire recording was of "this TV". Same with The Simpsons.

How is it possible that I actually watched Fox HD but the show that was recorded on what is supposedly the same station "this TV"?

I understand that these stations can change, but are my symptoms reflective of common QAM activities? Where I can get Fox HD only if I stop scanning for channels mid-scan but then it will randomly recognize it as a completely different station sometime later in the day? I get all of my local HD stations except for Fox (which randomly went out), then when I do a rescan to try and fix the problem, the only local HD station that comes in is Fox and that's only if I do what is said above?

According to the FCC database, WCIV and WMMP - effective today - have swapped callsigns. WCIV is now transmitting on ch 36 - virtual ch 36; WMMP is now transmitting on ch 34 - virtual ch 4. Again, all of this is currently in the FCC database. Wish I lived in the Charleston area - can anyone investigate and see what any discreet or almost hidden station IDs are saying? From checking out these stations' websites and FB pages, it's "business as usual" and apparently the change today is going to be virtually transparent to the viewer.

WCIV changes:


MyNetworkTV is on channel 36.1 (in HD!)
ABC (ABC News 4) is on channel 36.2 (in HD!)
MeTV is on channel 36.3 (in SD)


Folks who have cable or satellite remains unchanged! Which means like those having DIRECTV for example you can still see WCIV on channel 4 for ABC programming and MyNetworkTV programs still on channel 36.


Confused?


It takes time to get used to the new position for those who rely on over-the-air antennas in the Lowcountry.

Well those three stations show up as if they are WMMP 1, 2, & 3 but all have the lock icon next to them.

I finally got around to connecting my coax directly to my TV and scanning those channels and I get every station I'm supposed when doing that so the problem has to be with WMC or my HDHRP. How can I fix this?

For those individuals with a TiVo, the WCIV channel switch has got the channel listing for channels 208 and 431 on Comcast switched. I've sent a problem report today.

Anyone know when ABC will move to .1, MY to .2....and the bug on .3 to reflect .3?

Also, anyone plan on bringing back a weather channel? 2.3 seems ideal, after viewing 3.3 in Savannah (also Media General).

Gotta love the legendary Rob Fowler on WCBD 2.


BTW, I prefer Charleston, SC over Savannah, GA because it's more historic.


I always wanted a Slingbox M1 (cost $150) for Christmas, so I could ask one of my FB friends who lives in the Lowcountry to use my Slingbox on their receiver so I could watch the live TV Charleston style.


Do Charleston, SC DirecTV lineup have HD locals only or both HD and SD?


I know it's


2 WCBD
3 CW (WCBD 2.2)
4 WCIVDT (Channel 36.2)
5 WCSC
7 ETV
24 WTAT
36 WCIV (Channel 36.1)
