But, it was much better than last night.

I did not make any adjustments to my antenna and did not rescan or reset my Hughes E86. Maybe it will get better with time. I still get both CBS and Fox at 100%.

Hey BuzaidC, I was going to wait a few days but I couldnt resist. I went to my attic to tweak my Uhf antenna. I moved it about 2 feet counterclockwise and my signal jumped to 80%!! they only problem is the signal keeps going up and down from 50-90% and this is causing breakups ever few minutes. I guess this will fix itself when abc goes to full power! Thanks!!!

Wow, great news. Glad to hear you are getting it. My signal is between 0 and 20 right now. I will try and move around my antenna (it is outside on the roof) tomorrow morning. I hope they are still broadcasting in the AM so I can see if it improves.
Thanks for the tip. Do you still get CBS and Fox at 100%??

as of 11:00 p.m.... ABC is now Unwatchable. My signal is on a roller coaster, it s jumping up and down from 30% to 70%. Breakups every 3 seconds... Maybe they lowered the juice

We need to pick a thread to talk about each topic. People are starting to post the same thing in two threads and it is getting redundant.

Maybe this thread has run its course. And once the ABC-DT issues are resolved, it may be time to start a new "Where's WNBC-DT and WWOR-DT" thread. Once those two are back and WPIX-DT is at full power all will be well in DTV land.

My setup is a little unusual. I live on the Jersey waterfront with a direct view of Manhattan. I have a Zenith 420 receiver and no antenna at all. That is, I am only running a plain 6' antenna cable to my Zenith. The cable terminates with with one of those little black splitter boxes with a couple of spade lugs coming out of it. That's it. I put this box on top of one of my speakers. I am getting ABC-DT (7-1 and 7-2) at 80-90 strength, according to the little graphic on the Zenith. I can also pick up CBS-DT, Fox-DT (5-1 and 5-2), and PBS-DT (13-1, 13-2, 13-3) that way, all with close to 90 strength. No WPIX.

Hey BuzaidC, I just checked and My signal is going crazy this morning. It is up and down from 20-93%. I think I might have to tweak it a little more. I cant deal with it today, have to spend SOME time with the family. I might just wait a few weeks until ABC gets the bugs out, so you might want to wait also before climbing on your roof. Good Luck....

No!

Maybe this way they will get their s**t together before 2004 Olympics, which will be shot largely in HD by NBC. It will still be shown tape-delayed and full of sappy general-interest stories, but in HD nonetheless.

So, let the whining begin!

Can someone post a relevant phone number to call???

Well I couldnt wait, my compulsive disorder took over!! I decided to give it one more tweek. My 8 year old daughter was my lookout. I moved the antenna about 4 inches back clockwise and my daughter starting yelling 100% 100% we got 100%!! My heart was racing and iI threw my hands in the air!! I dare not touch the Holy antenna!! I ran down and it was true!! 100% on ABC 100% on FOX and 100% on CBS!!! My prayers have been answered!! The only trade off is I cant get 21.1 PBS anymore. But I now also can get 11.1 WPIX at 45%...

So ANDYNG and BUZAIDC, Get up to your roof and Tweak your Antenna's!! This is FANTASTIC!!! Now all I need to do is get a LIFE!!! Thanks to all

LOL!

Now if only we can get NBC-DT and more HD programming.

I am sooooo tired of NTSC crappy, fuzzy PQ. We've been stuck with NTSC for too long.

But it seems that lately the networks have started viewing HD as a selling tool. So there is hope...

my opinion is that this thread covers it all. i dont see the help having individual threads for local ota ch. this one has it all and you just have to go to 1 place. but where ever you guys add a thread i follow since its pertaining to my area but i think they should go here, hate the clutter plus i hang hr often, lata buddies

i like how abc is doing it. I am getting them at 95% whenever hd programming is on because i dont intend to watch sd under that station.

NBC should move their a$$es quick.

I think the idea of the HD channel and the SD when no HD is being broadcast is great! Especially with the truly excellent PQ of the SD channel. This is unquestionably the best SD I've seen anywhere!

But how does having the SD channel affect the HD channels audio. Could they not do 5.1 on the HD channel whether or not there is a SD channel?
