It wasn't when it was first on. I stopped watching. I turned it on just to catch the last few minutes of the broadcast and it was in HD.

Nanny 911 not in HD although it started out HD (I think). Hoping 24 comes through. Also a couple of minutes of audio silence.

Weird!?!

24 is not widescreen but off to the right off the frame, the FOX bug is partially visible at the bottom.

Anybody else watching the Giants / Astros in HD on FSNBA right now (920)?

All the transport controls are locked out while watching on this channel.

Other channels (including HD) work fine, I even went ahead and recorded it, but the transport controls still don't work.

Just my box?

At least the game was actually HD. The Yankees/A's game is 4:3 inside the 16:9 window.

Doh!!!

At least it wasn't letterboxed insde the 4:3 frame! That just adds salt to the wound when that happens.
David Ortiz's Avatar David Ortiz 02:33 PM 05-15-2005
It's fixed now... whew!

HD Yankees @ A's on 920

Anybody else having trouble with KMPH esp. during their primetime programming?

I'm getting a strong signal, but it was completely breaking up so much during "24" last nite that I had to switch to viewing a fuzzy analog picture.
videoaddikt's Avatar videoaddikt 04:13 PM 05-17-2005
Any more word when some locals like 47, will pumping out more 5.1 audio?

Man I am so glad someone else is having this problem. I was about ready to go out and buy a new HDTV tuner. I've got anywhere from 3-5 bars on my SIR-T151 and it's been breaking up really bad the past week or so. None of the other channels are doing this.

American Idol became unwatchable in HD. House is looking much better, and with 5.1.
Steve S's Avatar Steve S 07:58 PM 05-18-2005
KMPH has had lots of encoder problems in the past. It was unwatchable for weeks at a time prior to their going HD, back when they were digital but only 480i.

In the 50's when a station had problems (which was not all that infrequent) they'd put up a "technical difficulties, do not adjust your set" card. I wish they could do that now with the digital feeds as I too always wonder if it's my equipment or the station when all these glitches occur.

Same here, especially with regards to my Silver Sensor indoor antenna. But when I receive the other local HD's without moving it, I know KMPH has got problems.
The only other one I sometimes have problems with is KSEE. It is generally stable once locked-in, but the signal strength seems to vary more.
And KGPE has something against broadcasting 5.1.
Steve S's Avatar Steve S 06:39 PM 05-20-2005
KFSN (30.1) has been 100% 5.1 since spring of '01, but only in the last year or so have they been able to do so without frequent audio dropouts and audio synch problems. I had a station engineer once note that doing 5.1 is very difficult for the encoding and when it screws up it can also ruin picture reception. KFSN seems to have handled it well of late, but KTLA in LA still has the occasional audio glitch.

None of the other locals are doing 5.1 at all, probably can't afford the equipment or are leary of the complexity.

I was sure KMPH was doing it regularly on some programming (not any worse than their video has been recently), and even KSEE. I will have to pay closer attention next time.
It would sure add more impact to CSI, I usually resort to PLII for some semblance of surround.
Steve S's Avatar Steve S 02:29 PM 05-22-2005
My bad, KMPH for sure does do 5.1, don't recall seeing any on KSEE but don't watch that channel often enough to know if they do or not.

I've also had halfway decent results with PLIIx or Logic 7 Cinema for some 2 channel shows, depends on whether the 2 channel has Pro Logic encoding or not. My receiver detects whether or not there's pro logic decoding on 2 channel sources and those that have it definitely get better surround in the PLIIx and Logic 7 Cinema modes than those without.

Star Wars EPII just came on and it's already breaking up. How very annoying

Same here!!!

We need to all email or phone KMPH cuz I'm not watching the Season Finales of "24" or "House" in SD.
jeadams's Avatar jeadams 07:05 PM 05-24-2005
I e-mailed KMPH last week at: "viewercomments@kmph.com" I received a very nice reply and an explanation. I would post the e-mail but their was a legal cannot disclose warning attached. I would urge all KMPH listeners to express their concerns. I live in Bakersfield and put up an antenna specifically for KMPH and last February's superbowl. Hopefully the issue can be resolved soon.
mad62's Avatar mad62 09:49 PM 05-24-2005
Is KMPH working for anyone? Can't get it to work on my Sylvania SRZ3000 DTV tuner, but its coming up using a Sasem Onair USB HDTV device (much like the last time KMPH was "off the air".)
videoaddikt's Avatar videoaddikt 08:41 AM 05-25-2005
Was it just me, or did a some of the locals have an agreement not to do digital last night?
I totally lost 47.1, 26.1, and 24.1. I received analogs fine. I am using an indoor ant. but losing 3 at the same time was most unusual. KMPH was the least surprise....
Klin's Avatar Klin 06:11 PM 05-29-2005
KMPH-DT is still breaking up quite a bit. This nascar race is barely watchable. I sent them an email but didn't get a response. Typical
DiCecco's Avatar DiCecco 09:01 AM 05-30-2005
KMPH use to be very stable but now it is like you said almost unwatchable with all the breakups. Signal quality is very good. I wonder what the problem is.
meltedcheez's Avatar meltedcheez 04:19 PM 06-13-2005
Hello everyone! This my first post in this thread. What would you guys say is the best HD channel you receive and see the most difference on. I have to say is KVPT 40-2. PBS's True HD channel looks great. I don't watch PBS very often but I have to say sometimes the picture just pulls me in no matter what the programming is. Anyways, I think KFRE and UPN need to get in gear and start broadcasting in something better than 480i. UPN's sound is awful!
Steve S's Avatar Steve S 03:49 PM 06-19-2005
I haven't been able to get KVPT 40.1 or 40.2 over the air since last Thursday or Friday, anyone else?
DrewM's Avatar DrewM 08:46 AM 06-20-2005
PBS is has got their P-SIP(?) working they are now mapped to 18-1 & 18-2.

Whats up with KMPH I wanted to watch NASCAR yesterday and found out that their HD was down.
Mach1_8's Avatar Mach1_8 02:33 PM 06-22-2005
Hey all. Been watching this thread for a while. Anyone have word on Comcast's latest plans to go digital with their analog channels? Any word on Fox? I know patience is a virtue but I guess I'm all out...
Steve S's Avatar Steve S 07:26 PM 06-22-2005
Thanks Drew, found 18.1 and 18.2 this morning. oddly the program info is still on 40.1 and 40.2, the remapped listing just shows "regular programming" so I guess they didn't really master the psip after all.
DiCecco's Avatar DiCecco 06:57 PM 07-03-2005
I recorded sounstage in HD on my LSt-3410a and it was perfect. Any word when kvpt might add 5.1 sound? KMPH appears to be stable again for me I recorded The Inside with no problems. Now that nascar is over on fox they got there signal stable.
mad62's Avatar mad62 10:57 PM 07-30-2005
Anybody else here still experiencing trouble with the KMPH digital signal?

Using my Sylvania SRZ3000 STB, I'm getting a 95% signal, but it's often breaking up during the FOX network programming, resulting in out of sync A/V or the STB locking up.

It is only KMPH I am having difficulties with.
