Is anyone aware if HD test patterns are provided by the locals? What time these come on, and if they are any 'good' as related to ISF standards.

Anyone having problems with 26-1? Mine has not worked yesterday or today. I even tried rescanning. It just says searching for signal.

Programming OTA HD locals into your 811 could be a very frustrating experience. Not all the channels that are scanned by the receiver will be saved. I was tipped off to this by a Dish tech when I called about another problem, which he resolved.
BTW, he said many problems can be resolved by simply holding the power button for a good 5 seconds, to power reset. You will have to wait while it downloads everything again afterwards. Unfortunately, this does not resolve the Local HD problem.
I am back to using the tuner in my display for local HDs, which at first glance appears to offer better PQ anyway.

I am seeing OTA signals from KNXT (it remaps to 1-1 on my Samsung SIR-T451 ???), 61-1 and 61-2, and 26-1 from Fresno in far south Bakersfield, close to Pumpkin Center. Antenna is a pair of stacked 6 element Yagi's in the attic with 25db amp.

What's with KFSN-DT OTA? I'm watching the playoff game, and the picture is way off. The bars that should be on the side of the picture are right in the middle.

I saw that when trying to watch the news yesterday morning. The 4/3 pic was split in half with bars in the middle instead of on the sides, and the left half of the picture was on the right side of the screen and vice-versa!

For some reason, their 26-1 mask isn't working. They're on 28-1.

I can recieve it on my Unity Motion receiver but not on my LG-3410a.
The LG shows strong signal on 28-1 but no picture. Good old Unity Motion
first generation digital receiver always works no matter what the stations due. I hope KMPH fixes it soon so I can record with the LG again.

Not getting anything on 26-1 or 28-1 using a Sylvania SRZ3000 DTV Receiver.

But I'm able to watch KMPH-DT using my Sasem OnAir USB HDTV tuner on 26-1.

Oh, and KNXT-DT also remaps to 1-1 using the Sasem.

I suppose that doesn't beat losing 39 channels of HD. My Voom service just ended. On a bright note, the OTA reception still works.

Not that into NASCAR, but I guess if you are that would be a major bummer.

I have 3-4 months until I move up to Clovis. Does Comcast have anything new in HD that would make me not want to sign up for a year committment anywhere?

I'm getting strong signal on 26.1--when I tune to it the screen goes black and there's a "no signal" message at the bottom, but if I press the signal strength meter button on the remote the meter reads strong, channel 28, which is the actual broadcast frequency. I'm pissed mightily.

My receiver is an LG mfg. Sony HD-200.


Anyone in Fresno with an LG built box able to tune 26 or 59?

Still not receiving KMPH-DT thru a Sylvania DTV tuner or my Samsung STB, despite doing a rescan of channels on both boxes.

Weird I can recieve KMPH-DT thru a Sasem Onair Tuner..."24" in HD is looking great. Should I just get rid of those STBs?

Any Fresno/Clovis Dishers out there? I am getting the 61.5 dish installed on Th to pick up the extra HD Voom channels.
I don't have a problem with the extra 5 bucks a month, but the extra dish will cost 100. (yes, a steal compared with buying all the hardware myself and installing it, etc.)
Apparently, the only way you get it free is if you need it to receive local channels. You would think it would be free for any channels you have to pay for. I am a legacy customer. Just curiuos if some of you in the area got different deals or different information. Not sure what's worse, no policy, or an inconsistent one.

I'm getting KMPH and KFRE dt again this afternoon. KMPH is breaking up badly though, as if they have an encoder problem. Signal strength is strong and steady so I don't think the problem is at my end. They've had encoder problems before they went HD, sometimes for weeks at a time.

KMPH and KFRE are now working again on my LG LST-3410a. I guess they
have fixed the problem.

My 2 cents on 26-1. For 24 on Monday no picture. Last night for House M.D. there was a picture but it was choppy so I switched to SD. I hope it is better for the O.C on Thursday.

PQ for American Idol in HD is usually exemplary. Not as fun as watching the NBA but I have to make concessions now and then :/ ...last night it had be about the worst looking SD I've seen, and HD was breaking up like crazy. We watched L&O instead of House.
Hopefully, 26.1 is back on track!

Last night American Idol started off goofy. No HD...and traces of lip-synch problems for the first 6 minutes....then HD snapped on and back into video AND audio splendor!!!

KMPH now ok. Both KMPH and KFRE had wildly too loud and distorted sound via digital connection to my receiver with DD turned on on the STB prior to the outage, now ok.

I watched a little NASCAR on 26 and it wasn't HD. Wasn't it supposed to be?
