KIRO-TV has a low-power translator for Everett/Marysville. It transmits on a different frequency than the main Seattle transmitter, but it maps out to channel 7.1 (the RF channel is 17).

Additionally, Everett has a low-power translator for KZJO which maps out to channel 22.1 (the RF channel is 29). Besides KIRO and KZJO, which other stations are you able to receive? If you are using a highly-directional XG91 Yagi, it might be worth checking your TV Fool mapping and tinkering around with things.

If you can find a post by DanKurts, send him a PM. Although he specializes in custom A/V installations, he is very knowlegeable about the performance of TV antennas in specific neighborhoods and specific types of houses.

Fry's Electronics in Renton carries some RCA, Channel Master and Antennas Direct models. I recall that McLendon's Hardware carries a couple of RCA antennas. You might want to PM DanKurts on this thread, he performs a lot of custom A/V installs and could point you in the right direction as well as offer his opinions on specific antennas.

jtostenr, King is touchy way the heck up here (snohomish). I had to add a signal booster and theres a rather narrow aim for me sometimes. (wonder if my antenna rotor 'walks')

Everything has changed... all the channel numbers that is. Seemingly as I type... I'm confused...

I came here hoping someone knew what was up. Is it storm related or some kind of upgrade or channel swap?

Getting the network channels on 48 now if I'm not mistaken. I don't remember that existing before.

KING transmits 5.1 and 5.2 on channels 48.1 and 48.2. Your TV should remap the channels to 5.1 and 5.2 based on the PSIP information in the broadcast stream.

Try re-scanning channels on your TV. In most cases, that should clear things up.

I've seen a couple of receivers over the years that had a really difficult time recovering from corrupt PSIP data. The fix for those was to disconnect the antenna and do a full scan (clearing everything), then reconnecting the antenna and doing another full scan (re-adding everything.)

Good luck!

Lost local SD channels

Hopefully I'm in the right forum.

I just realized this week (I'm in the Bellevue area), that I've lost several of the local SD channels - Komo 4, King 5, Kong 6, KCTS 9, KZJO 10, and KSTW 11. The screen message just show no TV signal detected. Surprisingly, CBS 7 and FOX 13 aren't affected. I can get them in HD however (channels 104, 105, etc).

I have a cable card and Silicondust Prime with Windows Media Center if that makes a difference. Have I missed some Comcast changes or does anyone know what could be causing this? Appreciate your help.

This would be the OTA (over the air forum) for Seattle. Come back if you cut the cable. What you want now is Seattle, WA - Comcast Good luck
