Anyone having problems with KVIA and KTSM picture pixilating and audio breaking up? Have it on OTA straight to tv and OTA on Dish Box -1 and on Dish local -0

And I thought it was my OTA antennas (2 different ones), but they were broadcasting it in Spanish in channel 5-1 (SD) and the picture also broke there... I think it was FOX the satellite feed, because the 14.2 sub was fine.

Crappy for FOX, isn't the SB on FOX this year? I forgot

KFOX is going "brand new" studios, transmitters, etc starting today, I hope the Sunday glitch was because of this changes. I called a friend and he's reporting clearer, better quality on KFOX right now, I hope this will be noticed on primetime shows, NFL games and the World Series is also coming.

Read this a while ago. Sinclair Broadcasting who owns KFOX also bought KDBC and built a brand new facility to house both of them. I have a HD OTA video recorder and the PSIP time is off about 8 hours fast. I'm going to try a factory reset, if that doesn't fix the times then I will wait until DST ends.

Yesterday I saw a little bit of the KFOX news at five and it looked really clear like they went HD or something. I also noticed that 14-2 is in 16:9 and the shows are in 4:3. Also 4-2 is now in 16:9 and they are showing everything in Stretch-o-Vision.

Checked out the weekend channel 4 news (5:30PM) and it looks even more amateurish than it did under KTSM. Sure won't be watching it.

Did anyone notice Blue Bloods on KDBC Friday night? they repeated the last 10 minutes and never showed the end of the show. Had to go on CBS and watch the end of the show.

Today the missed the Jason Garrett show and are showing Toyota Nascar week.

I hope all this is just new equipment and people co-ordination jitters

Better check my recording. May have to watch for a repeat to get it recorded (I don't watch until the season is over and then take 2-3 days to watch the entire series).

Lost the signal for about 9 minutes during Madame Secretary. Can probably expect to lost it again during The Good Wife with the storm moving thru.

Lost the signal on KTSM for about a minute just shortly after Manning set the record.

Edit: Just checked my recording of Brooklyn Nine Nine from last night. KFOX also went down for a short period just before 8 PM.

I saw the NFL games on CBS & Fox and the picture look more sharp. I know my HDTV was detecting 1080i for CBS and 720p for Fox but both feeds look good OTA.

In general ABC and Fox are transmitting on 720p per network requirements and the resolution could not be so sharp like CBS & NBC.

Last night during the storm at least channels 4, 7 9 and 13 went out, power must have gone out in their antenna sites, 14.1 was fine (weird because they suppose to share 4's hardware, right?)

Thanks for the heads up. Have it on DVR, just checked "tape" and sure enough missing the last act. Can watch the episode over at cbs.com

They may be on the same studio facilities but different transmitter sites: http://www.tvfool.com/index.php?opti...pper&Itemid=90

Too bad it is still 480i. The picture quality is not all that great. In fact, looking at the logo there is slight echo.

Not yet good enough for me to ditch basic cable. But they are on their way.

KDBC is still screwed up. Tuesday instead of showing Person of Interest, they replayed a promo block for 5 minutes then showed Stupid pet tricks or some lame arse show for 10 minutes (I scanned thru it) before starting POI at 915pm. Needless to say, the DVR didn't like the time shift so no watchy channel 4. Can watch on cbs.com.


With sweeps month starting the end of next week, they should probably fire some folks and get their act together before they wake up and wonder why their ratings are so low (can't watch shows that aren't broadcasted when they're scheduled).


Appears at channel 4, even they don't watch their own channel to see that they aren't showing what its scheduled.

They've been doing the same thing the past 2 Saturdays for CBS This Morning. The first 15-20 minutes is something else.

This makes the 6th primetime show on either 4.1 (KDBC) or 14.1 (KFOX) in the last 10 days that have been bad. I usually don't have that many for the whole season on all 5 networks. Gonna have to keep a close eye on repeats so I can get the bad ones recorded whole before I watch them next summer.

I'll have to check my recording of POI. I know Blue Bloods on the 17th missed the last 10 minutes. I 'll check yesterdays since I recorded it. Back: POI was messed up but Blue Bloods and Sleepy Hollow were OK. The other shows on cbs and fox i watched durring the week were OK. the person to contact for poblems at both 4 and 14 is Nichole.Villalobos@kfoxtv.com She has always been good at getting this fixed like their PSIP guide data. They are probably having some growing pain since they merged and moved into the new combined building. But still no excuse for not catching the problem. can't be that no one at home or in the studio noticed a problem especially POI.

Agree, saw the same crappy picture out here in Alburquerque during the Fox game in London. The Fox station here in Alburquerque (KASA) was having the same poor picture during the game.

Was probably a network feed problem then since I'm pretty sure KFOX El Paso doesn't supply Alburquerque's feed. It was also OTA and I have Dish Network. I went HD and 5.1 Dolby about 5 minutes into the Eagles game. Have not heard anything back from KFOX. In the old, old days when a station was having a problem they would put up a message, but nobody cares about viewers any more.

More likely due to a video conversion from 50 Hz UK TV system to 60 Hz, since we use 30 FPs, UK use 25 FPs that's why the video looks bad! The station I am getting KASA-DT rf ch. 27 here in Albuquerque"s TV market.

But the eagles game wasn't from England and other London games have not had the problem.

sent email to KVIA about audio break up problem today. below is response.
Frank, We are working on this issue and is mostly us causing the problem as we make adjustments live, we try to minimize interruptions but is difficult as we need to work on it during different programs that play from different sources (e.g. network, local, syndication, etc.) Thank you for your patience, I will let you know when we are done so you can assist us in monitoring after all adjustments and upgrades have been performed, more than likely Wednesday late afternoon. Thank you, Elias ----- Original Message ----- From: Frank Hoegler <fhoegler@elp.rr.com> To: Elias Ventanilla <elias.ventanilla@kvia.com> Sent: Tue, 28 Oct 2014 15:22:22 -0500 (CDT) Subject: Re: Signal Hi Elias, Well I've tried watching as much of both OTA, straight to TV and over Dish Network 7.0 and 7.1. I've concluded that the picture break up seems to be mostly gone but the audio break up (hic cup) is still a problem. A very big problem OTA on 7.1 on both Dish and straight into TV. Sometimes words lost, It will come and go, sometime OK for 5 minutes or so and then starts up. On Dish 7.0 it is not nearly as bad and almost tolerable but should be happening at all. Maybe the 4 seconds or so delay helps. I don't have any problems with any other Dish channels or KFOX or KDBC so I don't think I have any equipment problems. I very slight problem with KTSM. Maybe your towers being so close together or some common cable or power cables. I remember several years ago, I think it was KTSM, there was a rodent problem eating cables.
