Over the past several weeks, I have had a lot of intermittent trouble with OTA reception for WSPA (Channel 7). Normally the reception is excellent. On only some evenings over the past few weeks, I get very frequent (5 to 10 per minute) video glitches. The audio seems OK. This past Tuesday from 8:00 to about 9:30 PM was particularly bad, then the problem went away almost completely around 9:30. Wednesday evening was fine.
Does anyone know if this is a WSPA transmission issue? I am going on the theory that it is not a problem with my reception since some of the time WSPA is fine along with the other channels I receive are also fine as usual. Also since Tuesday around 9:30 the problem went from very bad to nearly no problem at all makes it seem like a transmission issue and not a reception issue.
I've been having the same issues on Charter with WSPADT. I rarely watch it live, but my recordings from this past tuesday all had issues from WSPA. In fact, I've seen it on several recordings from that channel in the last few weeks.
Although VHF is more subject to noise and interference, WSPA has a good strong signal in the local Upstate SC area. Unlike WLOS which is a bit more problematic. So there could have been some temporary transmission issue with Channel 7. Hopefully it has been corrected.
Thanks for all of the replies. I have not noticed any problems over the last few days but I have not been watching much TV lately either. And, what I have seen has been strictly WSPA and has been intermittent so I am discounting any problems on my end for now.
Has anyone noticed for the last few weeks WHNS (Fox) 712 on Charter is constantly switching between blurry and sharp every second? I am seeing this on all primetime programming. It is especially annoying during football as the grass is constantly changing and graphics on the screen keep flashing from blurry to sharp. I don't have an OTA setup to test if this is a Charter encoding issue or not but I can't believe no one has noticed.
