I am in San Jose.
I did notice something similar last summer with KPIX 5.1 and 5.2, however the difference was that the channel would usually appear after several seconds. I am told it was possibly related to an intentional delay the broadcasters might do so you receive more bandwidth for the current subchannel. However, my current situation with KNTV doesn't seem to be the same since it never appears at all.
Thanks for any help
Please go to TVFool and make a new post with a LINK
to your report. San Jose is a big city with different areas having different signal problems. (Even just your Zip Code would help.) The TVFool report provides lots of information the experts here desire!
is my report and my antenna is here:
Decades on 5.2 last summer may have been a testing period, Decades has been rock solid since when they started blitzing "The Fugitive", "Naked City" and other entire series one after another. (I got ALL of those two.)
I am told it was possibly related to an intentional delay the broadcasters might do so you receive more bandwidth for the current subchannel.
There is no delay used, the splitting of the bandwidth of the transmitter is either fixed or dynamic allocated.
Should you be interested I can capture two DTV Stations using the two methods and post the TSReader results, but it is very difficult to understand the reports and some stations do not understand all of it. (Part of the current discussion here.)
Your antenna type, notes on splitters to several TV's and so on also would help.
Your tuner appears to be an "Channel Master DVR+" as I found lots of your post there.
Have you done a full scan lately? Some of what you report suggests that one would help.
