I live in East Longmeadow, MA and use a samsung SIR-TS160 and I also had problems with WFSB starting this weekend. Could not get CSI miami in last night.
In case anyone is interested, I use a radio shack XUR120 12" boom antenna on my roof with a radio shack rotor and radio shack 30 db amplifier.
I can consistently get in WWLP, WTNH, the WB station from CT, and PBS. WFSB was coming in with a few dropouts until yesterday when I started getting more dropouts.
I was not able to get FSB at all until I had the rotor installed. It still only goes up to 36 on the signal meter max.
Looks like there are changes on the WTNH channel tonight. NYPD blue is showing up on Channel 8-2 with a blank 8-1. The sports wire is gone also.
NYPD blue is in dolby digital 5.1 which is cool. I do not think it has been in dolby digital in the past.
One more comment that may help people. I find that with the radio shack amp I need to tur nthe amplification strength down to about 1/2 to get all the channels in. More than that and the signal vanishes.
Here is a problem that I have. With WWLP, when they come back from commercials it looks like they turn off the dolby digital for a second which causes my JVC receiver to have to re-initialized dolby digital and lose about 4 seconds of audio. I can see the dolby digital light go off for a sec then on again. this occurs also on a zenith HDV420 terrestriail receiver as well.
anyway, hope someone finds these posts helpful. It has taken quite a bit of time for me to get all the channels in.
