I just received a preAmp and a signal attenuator from Solid Signal.
Wilm is now as solid as Wect.

It's WSI (Titan). We had about 8 computers in the old system. Now we are at 5 machines with dual systems

I know there are a few folks in Oak Island on here - anybody receiving WILM OTA? I'm using a CM4221 and can receive all the channels except WILM. If you've got something that works down here, mind sharing your setup?

Thanks!

Try an amplified splitter where your coax enters the home and then plug the output cable into your tuner. Also make sure the antenna is turned toward Delco, which is around 5 degrees left of Winnabow from Oak Island. PBS and CBS come from Delco. Try to peak the signal of channel 39. If you already did that, you may need to raise the antenna a few more feet. If you try all this, the final step would be a larger UHF antenna like an 8 bay or a long nosed yagi.

Hey, thanks for the reply. On Saturday I did raise the antenna a few more feet and improved its direction and can now receive WILM. Actually, I can even receive WCSC from Charleston!

I can get WTAT, FOX, WMMP, MyNetwork, and WCBD NBC out of Charleston up here quite regular during the warmer months when tropospheric ducting gets started. WCSC won't come in because of WYDO though.

Glad you got WILM to come in. I might see it twice a year up here in Jacksonville.

Community Newspaper Selling 4 Stations
By Harry A. Jessell
TVNewsCheck, January 3, 2011 11:55 AM EST

Community Newspaper Holdings is selling its four network affiliates to Thomas Henson for $24 million and the assumption of $50 million in long-term debt, according to an FCC filing seeking approval of the deal.

The stations (and their affiliations): WXTX Columbus, Ga. (Fox); WSFX Wilmington, N.C. (Fox); WUPV Richmond, Va. (CW) and WFXG Augusta-Aiken, S.C. (Fox).

Three of the stations are involved in duopoly arrangements with the Raycom Media stations in their markets — WXTX Columbus with ABC affiliate WTVM, WSFX Wilmington with NBC affiliate WECT and WUPV Richmond with NBC affiliate WWBT.

In each case, Raycom produces the news for the co-located Community station, although it has its own general manager.

Henson is buying the stations through a company called Southeastern Media Acquisitions. Through another company, American Spirit Media, he owns KYOU Ottumwa, Iowa-Kirksville, Mo.

Community, a publisher of newspapers in 23 states, now holds the licenses of the four stations through a subsidiary, Southeastern Media Holdings.

Community and Raycom Media have more in common than the management of the TV stations. They are both principally owned by the pension funds of the state of Alabama.

Also, Community, now based in Birmingham, Ala., has announced plans to move late this year or early next to Montgomery, Ala., where Raycom in headquartered.

I watched the Super Bowl on WECT, and I thought overall, the picture quality was outstanding. Also the Dolby Digital sound was spot-on, except the bass out of the sub could have been a little hotter, but I don't know if it is out of TV 6 or coming from NBC? I saw comments on the technical discussion of the programming section where some commented too much bass on their NBC channel, and others not enough, so it seemed it varied. Thoughts?

I'm jealous WITN lack of DD audio didn't help me NOR did the 140W/CH out of my Onkyo when I turned the volume up during Maddona's half time show. I gave-up and listened to it five CH Stereo. I am definitely fighting a losing battle, go figure...

WECT and WSFX are completely off the air

According to facebook, viewers have been dark since 11 PM hour last night. Apparently, they thought it was just charter cable, but everyone who receives with an antenna is not getting anything.

Update one minute later... both signals just popped up.

O.T. guys but good info which may be helpful to us all.

There is a local southeastern NC HT group which already has several members. I live in Holly Ridge and Work in Wilmington. I wanted to send invites to everyone on here but this is the easiest method to get the word out. If your interested in meets, bartering gear, technical assistance, or other good neighbor stuff post up over in the South Eastern North Carolina Home Theater Group and I'll add your info to the OP. My goal is a network of locals who share the hobby/interest and the merits theirin.

Cheers,
Nicholas

Being in Holly Ridge, but working in Wilmington, I guess you watch more Wilmington TV than Greenville/New Bern.

On Tuesday I visited Wilmington and finally got updated TSReader data on WILM and WSFX, nothing too interesting on those signals. I also caught W51CW on the air.

Looks like some testing of Mobile DTV technologies.

***Based on the picture and indications it looks as if they got CW in HD on board from 22, The picture is scaled down like non HD programming during the day on the OTAs **** I hope i am right on this one! Fitting that I started this thread and now I have updated the channels for you. Its been a very long road for the port city and HD local directv channels. I have flyers sent from directv from 2007 or so. Funny stuff. So many hurdles. Thanks for the heads up jamieh1

I guess I won't get them up here on Directv. I don't see them in my guide... I don't need them anyway, since I get everything strong enough with an antenna. I also now have 3 rooms wired for OTA, and get all the channels except WILM. I only have one room on a pre-amp, and that run has a 3 way splitter behind the TV for stereo and scanner. Outside where the main line comes in the crawlspace a power passive splitter on the outlet above and the other two port outlets non-powered.

I would like to get the CW HD. We don't get that here, just WNCT 4:3 CW+

this just goes to show you why it took so freakin long for hd local in local directv feeds.

Cause noone cares about HD in ILM. We just went live yesterday and there is uno reply over here at avs. I guess I cant blame them for waiting so long.

CW was in full HD last night, a little soft but HD nonetheless


#1 reason HD locals over directv are great!!!.

Online DVR Scheduling via android, iphone, pc apps.

The OTA channels were never recognized in the app.

I am watching on a 73" DLP and 42" Plasma, The (A3) over Sat HD locals are not quite as sharp, but im sure it wont be an issue with the wind starts to blow in the port city. My antenna is I guess about 9 years old now and I think it needs to be adjusted but I dont get up on a ladder so easy these days. So I am pleased to have HDLIL over DirecTV and more important to me apps scheduling for locals networks over android / ios etc.
