I'm pretty sure FOX 8 has been at full power on DT 31 for months, ditto with WEWS on DT 15.
The WEWS problems seem to be ongoing with their equipment.
As for me, though I usually watch the DT stations on Adelphia, I rarely have problems with WJW-DT 31. My only major OTA problem child is WKYC-DT 2 for obvious reasons.
Indoor antenna aiming out a large 2nd floor loft window, just under 20 miles from the Parma antenna farm.
BTW, I'm pretty sure Adelphia picks up the DT stations directly from the OTA signal. WEWS is always down on Adelphia when it's down OTA, and WVIZ's engineering staff tells me that Adelphia picks up even the low-power signal on DT 26 from OTA. (It helps when they have those Really Big Cable TV Receiving Antennas at the headend!)
