This may only work for people South East of Cleveland, but I turned my roof-top antenna toward Youngstown and Watched MNF in HD on 36-1, WYTV. I was only getting about a 45 to 50% signal, but it locked in and looked great. If you have a high antenna with a rotor, give it a try.

And CBS is down. Just spoke with engineering 440-845-1919 rings to the transmitter and they are down. Picture pops in and out. CBS is my weakest and definately the worst. It also has the most shows in HD. Lets work them over to increase power and quality

ABC is back on, and I am getting a 100 reading!
CBS is still bad, but I will go check my projector(the readings I have been giving are from my mits)
I switched to NBC for a second, and there was a little dropout(and the signal was at 93(it was always at 100).

Way to go guys on the ABC thing, now we wait for a week or two before we pester them for 5.1 sound

Ok, I was wondering why my projector had a decent signal, but my mits didn't

Just for fun, I replaced the wire from the antenna splitter to the mits, and pow, a 79 signal reading! I would still like to work on them more(this si the weakest channel out there, and members more than 10 miles may have problems.

I am going to snake the wire through the wall now

You have a good point Denton, now its time for 5.1 sound!

NBC also needs some love

I called an engineer last night who said that he didn't know when the 5.1 sound would be up, because their transponder is down, and he didn't think the digital channel was working.

BAsically, we have to annoy them more to get our 5.1 sound.


Parsons, we need to call WKYC too! I am getting it at 100, but every three seconds, it drops to 93. It sounds good, but there are bad audio dropouts here, and it bothers me.

Please keep the effort alive guys!

Football on Friday night was not scheduled for HD....thus you didn't see it.

Not sure if the movie was done in HD or not....you should check the programming forum.

Not sure what to tell you. I was at the local bar catching my Fins on the big screen and having a few beverages. I know that CBS was not having any preseason games in HD, but if the movie had the logo for HD then someone must not have flipped the switch in the control room. When that happens you need to call the station and ask for the control room and tell them that the show is not in HD....and to flip the switch!

Hope this helps!

I live on the eastside and ABC ( WEWS ) has been down all evening. I thought it was a quirk in my antenna.

I got my SIR T-151 two weeks ago and have been getting all channels via the Silver Sensor.
I stopped using the dish two years ago so I attached the Silver Sensor to the dish and connected it to the Coaxial cable and have been getting all channels since last week with MNF having a gorgeous picture.
Tonite, CBS and ABC were down but Faux and WKYC were fine.

I tried the Optima ( UHF, VHF ) indoor antenna both inside and out but the loop did not obtain the UHF well, though 3 was good and 10 came in often.

Silver Sensor ( $ 40.00 at Sears ) is a UHF antenna but it not only received Channels 15 and 31, but also Channel 3 very well and Channel 10 ( CBS ) most times. The outside usage of the antenna is better than the set top.

I am grateful for the information in this Forum and it is most useful to me to hear that a particular channel is down so I don't need to go out and reposition the antenna.
Thanks to all.

Well, I sent an email to the folks at ABC, Jim Baird, Gary Stark, Moreen Bailey, John Workman and Ric Harris pestering about 5.1 for MNF. Lets see if I get a response. I also sent an email to the folks at CBS, James Stunek, Judi Smith, and Lisa McManus, pestering them also regarding 5.1......

Anybody else notice CSI last night was not widescreen on the digital channel. Looks like they sere sending SDTV picture instead of HDTV. This is not acceptable. Call them

I think we are getting SD during the US Open Tennis. I know some of the matches are SD only, but I think the Womens match on now should be in HD, and it isnt. I would call, but I don't really care. And I seem to recall that CBS Cleveland sucked so freakin much during the Masters and calling them didn't do jack.

ABC was bad for me yesterday too. I wonder if the weather had anything to do with it? I hope they fix it by Thursdays' edition of MNF in high def.
