RBA,
Mind if I ask what kind of receiver you're using? I lost KVIA as well. A few years back I had a Hughes E86 and one day KVIA-DT just dropped off the map. KVIA even sent a couple techs out to my house and brought a Samsung HD receiver with them to prove that they were still up and running. Everyone was kinda stumped at that point. The guys from KVIA pointed the finger at Hughes and when I called Hughes, they said it was probably a problem with something in KVIA's stream

I never did find a resolution to the problem, and just ended up buying a new receiver (a Hughes HTL-HD) I just want to get an idea if they're down for everyone, or is this just a Hughes thing again?

If they are just down for the upgrade to full power, couldn't they have found a better time than the last week of the NBA Finals?

I had the E86 and everything was working fine. I recently switched to the Directv HD Tivo (jump on the 50 percent coupon at Best Buy) and noticed KVIA was out. I don't know if it was out on the E86 just befor the switch, but the new HD Tivo is not working for KVIA.

Hi there,
I just got a new Digital Stream HD 3150, from Circuit City..it was a cheapy brand..but wow the picture is amazing. Seems to work really well and I'm planning on keeping this puppy.
Well moving along to the signal meter:

4-1 KDBC - Signal = 86, SNR = 29.76 db (I think they went to full power a few days ago)
7-1 KVIA - Signal = 72, SNR = 21.55 db (They are back, but not at full power yet)
9-1 KTSM - Signal = 75, SNR = 23.80 db
13-1 - 13-2 KCOS - Signal = 76, SNR = 23.96 db
14-1 - 14-2 KFOX - Signal = 86, SNR = 29.75 db (They've been at full power for a while)
22-1 KRWG - Still can't get a good signal.

Channel 7 seems to be back with a better signal..I no longer get any dropouts..but they still don't seem to be at full power like they claimed they would be..so hopefully soon they will turn their antenna to full blast.
Also, I have to say that the picture quality looks amazing on every channel with hardly any dropouts here in the Eastside of El Paso.

8/31
4-1 KDBC- CBS=87
7-1 KVIA- ABC=87
9-1 KTSM- NBC, 9-2 NBC Weather+ =89
13-1 KCOS- Nat. PBS, 13-2 Local PBS=75
14-1 KFOX- FOX, 14-2 Doppler=87

Well it looks like 7-1 KVIA is back down again..I guess they are working on the antenna today..it was working earlier when I made the post, but I guess they are doing more technical stuff on it.
Maybe they'll get it up to full power?

4-1 KDBC- CBS=87

You might of gotten your wish 49ers, because Ch. 7 is back up and showing up with a stronger signal on my reciever.

7-1 KVIA - Signal = 83, SNR = 27.40 db

Hopefully you guys in Las Cruces can now get the signal.

It's back..Ch. 7-1 is back on the air with a signal in the 80's for me.

My guess is that they will be working on the antenna for a few days or even weeks..so the signal might come and go, but lets hope they keep it up for good soon.

well i can get cbs and fox now no problem just nbc and abc are still weak here in cruces. I drove past the franklins where all the antennas are. I saw some new antennas which im guessing are the digital ones but they were not as tall as some of the other ones.

Yup, in your case an outdoor antenna is probably the best solution for you. If I were you, I would try the CM4228 first, it seems like it gets good results.

Can some1 confirm if you are getting a HD signal from KVIA, I have channel 7 but not 7.1 or 17.1. I'd just installed my outdoor antenna and this is the only channel I'm not able to see.

Thanks for any reply.

Just called to the station, they said the tube burned and they are expecting the replacement from London but that due to the explosions is delayed but they also said the HD signal will be up and running by Tuesday 19th.

I hope this is true.

Thanks.

I wanted to know if TWC offers cable cards or if their HD boxes have firewire out? It usually is a small 4-pin connection called 1394 or DTV Link. My Toshiba has a slot for it and I want to use it to record HD. I am probably the only one in El Paso that ones a DVHS recorder. Does any one know if TWC activates the copy-protect flag?
