Speaking of KSPR. Anyone email their engineer about a timeline for HD lately? I may change my position on them if they don't get it out next year.

Ozarks Public Television will begin broadcasting HD 24/7 at the end of this week (on or about October 1, 2005).

I think "location " might be the problem. I'm only 12 miles from the ant. site, but there's a hill between my antenna and theirs. BUT...why do I get NBC and not PBS?

NBC broadcasts at over 950kw
PBS at 100kw That is why you can get one but not the other.

But you should be able to get them both at only 12 miles.

Thats great news MrBeReady, and will that be on 021-02 or will they move it to 021-01?

yornek, I guess you have tried deleteing your channels and rescanning them or adding them manual.Also if you have dish network equipment you might pull the power cord then replug it and that usually fixes most problems.

Don't know yet. The overall makeup of the multicast is changing; I'm not sure what the final minor channel number assignments are going to be.

Yup.

21-1 remains simulcast of analog channel 21
21-2 HD around the clock
21-3 is now simulcast of Mediacom cable channel 24 (previously 21-4): Missouri State University telecourses and PBS YOU

The PBS Kids feed is no longer available from PBS. If you saw it alternating with PBS YOU on 21-3 it was probably a quirk during the transition.

What type antenna are you using to pick up KOAM in

directional UHF/VHF antenna pointed right at their tower,
and I have yet to get a picture! Signal strength is usually
49% and never higher than 56%. I get the local PBS HD at
94% and ABC and NBC digitals in the low to mid 80%, all
in there solid wih my Dish 811.

I am in North Webb City and am able to receive KOAM-HD at about 95% signal strength. Being quite a bit north of you I am a lot closer to their tower which is about halfway in between Webb City and Pittsburg. I have a Channel Master Spartan 3 (0264DSB) attached to a Winegard YA-6713 VHF Antenna. The antenna is on a pole about 30 feet off of the ground. With this setup the signal is extremely reliable.

Thanks, 2-ball-Joplin for your location info. It seems my
reception problem has to do with not having an antenna
cut especially for channel 13, like your Winegard YA-6713.

Maybe we can get some guide info on our PBS channels from channel 21 now that they have settled on 3 cannels.

Do the direct tv receivers show guide info on all our local channels?

The Samsung D* boxes will show local channel program info (provided by D*), IF connected to a D* satellite dish. This includes all local OTA analog and digital channels, and all sub channels a digital station is broadcasting.

If the Samsung D* box is not connected to a D* satellite dish, it will show digital channel program guide info provided by the station via PSIP data. If the station is too lazy to add program info or correct PSIP info, you will get little more than the station's call letters and sub-channel number(s).

Results vary with other brands of D* HD boxes.

Thanks guys, sounds like the guide data is a dish problem for sure. I only have guide info on 3.1 on my 921 & 942.

I hooked up my PC with Dvico Fusion5 HDTV card in it and did a channel scan. To my surprise, I was able to pick up KSPR-DT from Battlefield. I guess with a strong enough antenna, I should be able to get all local stations in digital. For some reason, my Samsung SIR-TS160 still can't pick up 33 even though the signal strength seemed fairly strong on my PC. I can't believe it's taking our local stations so long to start broadcasting HD.

The reason you can't get guide data on the 921 and 942 is that they suck. Dish network boxes are crap. I'm suprised they get any local broadcast data. I used to have E* and the 811 had no data, but now they upgraded their software to limited OTA data.

Let me add....


942 is a better box and on the way to being #2. Behind the HR10-250 of course.

G'day, I'm a new member here, I live on Lake Norfork, 72 miles from KYTV's transmitter and I get KY3's dt signal fine as well as KOZK. I have an antenna 45' in the air and looking through oak trees, On my Dish921 I have 110 on KYTV and 80 on KOZK. HD signals are perfect.

G'day

Welcome langlin, I think I have saw you at dbstalk. Just like me you were wanting guide info on our locals on the 921. Wonder if we will ever get it?

MSPIN thinks D* is the way to go, but I will probably have to wait and see what is going to happen over the next 6 months with MPEG4.

Looks like we are going to lose NBC & TNT in 2007 for our nascar raceing.Channel 33 had better get on the ball and get us an HD signal before then as it looks like ABC and ESPN2 will take over. I have gotten spoiled watching the races this last half of the season in HD.

I sure hope channel 27 can get us HD before the spring races start next year.

Don't expect local guide data on the 921. It's a dead box for dish. Right now E* is the way to go but I'm betting on D* in the next year to take back the lead. I would have E* if the boxes didn't piss me off so much and their stupid audit team didn't keep causing me problems for no reason and the CSRs knew what they were doing. I like the 942, love the HR10-250. I want both to expand HD as quickly as possible. Spaceway 1 and 2 (if it actually launches this time) will help D* take back the lead.

Finally,

DirecTV has their new DNS finder on their website. Looks like I may be "moving" soon to get a HD feed for ABC, CBS, and Fox.

Word of warning....

If you "move" you will no longer recieve wb or upn so if there are any shows on those channels that you watch you will lose them.
